I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and not good with dogs.
"Hello! I'm PIPER, a pretty two-year-old pit bull sweetheart with a zest for life. I'm friendly, affectionate, and ready for fun. I'm smaller than most pit bulls, so everyone mistakes me for a puppy. I absolutely love to play fetch with toys, so I'll need a good-sized fenced yard where we can play every day. A daily walk would be great, too. I already know how to sit on command, and I'd really enjoy spending time with you learning anything else you'd like to teach me. I'd be a loving family pet in an active home, and I'd do best in a family where the kids are older. No other dogs for me, please. I'm a really nice dog with a happy disposition, so I think you'd be pleased to make me part of your home. Won't you please come visit me? We can go out to the nice play yard that they have here so we can get to know each other. I can show you how good I am at playing fetch, too. I hope to see you soon! Love, Piper"
We are the Animal Shelter for the City of El Cajon. We also house animals for the City of La Mesa. We take in strays and animals relinquished by their owners from these two City's only. We adopt out the animals that are not claimed by their owners. You do not have to live within the City to adopt an animal from us. We sometimes have animals other than dogs and cats.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are located in the City of El Cajon which is east of San Diego. 1275 N. Marshall is two blocks north of Fletcher Parkway, Marshall runs parallel with the trolley tracks.
We are open Tuesday thru Saturday 10am to 5pm. The latest we start an adoption is 4:30. We are closed Sundays and Mondays.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee for dogs is $80.00 and cats are $80.00 All other animal adoption fee's are based on the type of animal.
We do an evaluation with you and the animal to be sure that it is the best animal for you. We require that all children in the household under 9 years old be evaluated with the animal and if you are adopting a dog and you currently own a dog, your dog needs to be evaluated with the new dog to be sure they get along.
