SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - More dogs are available for adoption in San Diego out of a need for more room in Orange and Riverside counties for animals rescued from the Holy Fire. 

The dogs, which range in age from 2 months old to six years old, arrived at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas earlier this week via a transfer from a shelter in Wildomar that was at full capacity.

The details on the dogs:

  • Ash: 1-1/2-year-old, 73-pound, male Siberian Husky
  • Ember: 4-year-old, 63-pound, female, Shepherd mix
  • Flame: 4-year-old, 56-pound, male, Chow Chow mix
  • Smokey: 6-year-old, 73-pound, male, Akita mix
  • Kona: 2-year-old, 52-pound, female, Labrador mix
  • Hook and Ladder: 2-month-old, 21-pound Shepherd mix puppies

RCHS officials said anyone interested in visiting the dogs and fill out adoption forms can do so at their location at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas.
