About Rancho Coastal Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) was formed in 1960 by a group of hardworking volunteers, led by animal lover Maria K. Lloyd. The goal was and continues to be to care for the homeless animal population of San Diego County and to educate the public about pet over-population and responsible companion animal care.

In the nearly 57 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 program for the survivors of domestic violence.

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.

HERE ARE THE STEPS YOU'LL GO THROUGH IN THE ADOPTION PROCESS:

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.
