Meet Kaiser, a 2 year old male, 55 pounds, Labrador mix. He was rescued in Sonora, then transferred to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Kaiser is an active dog who needs an active home with a family that has plenty of time to tire him mentally and physically. Kaiser needs a family that will continue to teach him “4 on the floor”. This means not paying attention to him until all four feet are on the ground. This will teach him that he earns the attention he wants when he’s polite and has his feet on the ground.

The adoption fee of $ 145 for Kaiser includes the medical examination, sterilization, up-to-date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if the adopter lives within the jurisdiction of the Animal Services Department of the San Diego Humane Society.

Each week our PAWS program introduces you to an adorable pet in need of a new home. PAWS is sponsored by Nick Adamo’s Farmers Insurance Agency. Nick Adamo is a great dog lover and animal advocate. For the past 10 years, he has supported the efforts of the local humanitarian society to help adopt pets through the Pet of the Week programs. Additionally, he has organized and participated in numerous fundraising events including Paws in the Park, Dogs Golf Tournament which matches military veterans with assistance dogs and more. He started associating with the Rancho Coastal Humane Society 7 years ago, as the main goal of RCHS is to encourage the adoption of animals into permanent and loving homes. The RCHS adoption process is designed to find the best match between people and animals and also promote human ideals through education and community awareness of animals and people.
If you’ve adopted a pet during COVID and are returning to work, Rancho Coastal Humane Society has some helpful tips.
- Help your pet adjust to your changing schedule. Start by leaving your pet alone in a “Retreat Zone” for a few minutes. Turn on the music or the TV. Each time you do this, increase the time your pet spends alone.
- Especially with a new pet you’ve never left alone before, watch for separation distress, including destructive behaviors. Give them something to do, like a toy or a candy puzzle.
- Older pets that have adjusted to your home stay may be more “needy.” Be patient. Give them lots of reassurance that everything is going to be okay.
- If your dog got used to 8 or 10 walks a day because you had nothing else to do, start cutting back. You can walk around without your pet. You are still exercising, but it helps the animal adjust to the fact that things are changing.
