“Rio” is the pet of the week at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s an 18-month old, 14-pound Maltese / Poodle mix.
A Maltipoo, Rio wants to be the center of attention. He can be a little bit nervous in unfamiliar situations, but it doesn’t last long. As soon as he figures out that everything is okay, Rio is very friendly and affectionate.
He’ll do best in a mature and mellow home. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from another animal shelter through the FOCAS program.
His $145 adoption fee includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. Find your best friend at Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas or log on to SDpets.org. Call 760-753-6413 for more information or to sponsor a pet until it’s adopted.
Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Monday.
