Humane Society Pet of the Week

“Katniss” is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She’s a 3-month-old, 3-and-a-half-pound, domestic short-haired, Tabby kitten.

When Katniss and the other kittens from her litter first arrived at Rancho Coastal Humane Society it seemed as if they hadn’t had much contact with humans or other cats. In the safety of the cattery they were surrounded by other kittens and they had lots of contact people. Their purr-sonalities soon began to emerge. Now they play with the other kittens and love it when people pet them.

Katniss and her litter mates were surrendered to Rancho Coastal Humane Society by a family that had more pets than they could care for.

The $195 adoption fee for Katniss includes her medical exam, up to date vaccinations, spay, and microchip identification.

Adopt Katniss or sponsor a pet until its new family takes it home. Call 760-753-6413; log on to visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas.

Kennels and cattery are open Wednesday through Monday from 11 to 5.
