Adoption Fee: $25 in September. All dog adoption fees include spay/neuter; microchip with lifetime registration; up-to-date vaccinations; licensing (Escondido, San Marcos and Poway areas only); veterinary exam at EHS; wellness exam after adoption; sample bag of food; discounts at local pet supply, grooming and boarding partners; and behavior support for lifetime of animal.
Background: Arthur is very affectionate and would gladly spend the day in the lap of his favorite humans. Arthur recently passed the Canine Good Citizen test, a program that is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. Arthur is currently living in a foster home, and his guardians report that he is the perfect house guest because he's so laid-back and relaxed. He is social with other dogs and friendly toward everyone he meets.
During September, all adoption fees for all animals at the Escondido Humane Society are just $25 as the shelter competes for a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA during the $100K Challenge.
You can meet Arthur and many other lovable pets at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
