Willow is a beautiful, loving and playful puppy who loves people and most dogs.
She loves to run and play in the yard, play chase with her fellow puppy, Liesel, explore the bushes looking for lizards, rabbits & squirrels. She runs at full speed for the sheer joy of running. She is happiest being around people and other dogs and does not like to be alone.
Willow is house-trained at our house and is used to having free access from the whole house to a nice yard. She takes naps in the afternoon and sleeps in her crate in our room at night.
Willow is a puppy so she likes to chew on toys, socks and shoes. She loves attention and we are working on training her not to jump on people when she first greets them.
Willow needs a family who can provide attention, exercise, training and companionship. She has little world experience. Everything is new and she is eager to learn.
Willow is still in our home, so if you are interested in Willow, please contact Charlotte at or 619-383-4956.

About Rancho Coastal Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) was formed in 1961 by a group of hardworking volunteers, led by animal lover Maria K. Lloyd. The goal was
and continues to be to promote the human/animal bond, find permanent homes for unwanted animals, and to educate the public about pet overpopulation and responsible pet ownership.

In the nearly 40 years since our inception, RCHS has grown from a small facility run by volunteers to a professionally managed humane society that provides quality shelter care, adoption services, education programs and an animal safehouse for the survivors of domestic violence.

The newest program at RCHS is the Second Chance Program. RCHS will take dogs, cats and rabbits from the three county shelters (and other municipal shelters) who are unable to hold their animals very long as they must constantly make room for the seemingly never ending influx of unwanted animals. Since we are able to keep our adoptable animals longer (because RCHS is a limited admission shelter), these dogs and cats are given a "second chance" for adoption.

The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is a non-profit, 501(c)3, charitable
organization. We are not tax supported, nor are we funded by any government agency.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

One of RCHS' main goals is the adoption of animals to permanent, loving homes. RCHS' adoption process is tailored to find the best match between pets and people.


Before you can see (that is, pet, cuddle, walk, and get to know) any animal you've seen in our kennels, we'll ask you to complete some paperwork. This paperwork must be completed first in order to minimize stress for you and the animals. Our process includes asking questions in order to make the best match between animal and owner. We like to gain a better understanding about your expectations, past experiences, and current animals at home.

Once all the paperwork has been satisfactorily completed, you may handle and visit the animal you're interested in. You'll have a counseling session with a knowledgeable member of our staff who will fill you in on the history and needs of that animal, and his feeding and exercise requirements. You can ask your counselor any questions about spaying or neutering, housetraining, obedience training, scratching (in cats), veterinary care, how to deal with fleas and ticks, and anything else you can think of.

You will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee. We will provide you with a list of all items and medical treatments that are included in your adoption fee.
