Adoption Applications Now Accepted for Buzz and Woody

The County of San Diego Department of Animal Services is now accepting adoption applications for Buzz and Woody, the two Jack Russell terrier mixes that were stung repeatedly by a swarm of bees last month.

“Both Buzz and Woody have made tremendous strides in their recovery and the two pups will soon be ready for their new forever homes,” said Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson.

The five-month-old males should be ready to leave the shelter within two weeks. The Department has a special adoption application for anyone interested in adopting either Buzz or Woody. The applications can be printed from the website and faxed to (619)767-2706 or mailed to the Department of Animal Services at 5480 Gaines St., San Diego, CA 92110, Attention “Buzz and Woody Adoption.” They can also be delivered to any of the three County animal shelters. Applications must be received by the close of business Saturday, June 30.

Staff will review the applications and choose new owners for both puppies by considering who would best meet their individual needs. The adoption fee for each pup is $69.

“There has been a tremendous interest in adopting these pups but only two families will be chosen to give each pup a forever home,” said Danielson. “We encourage anyone who is not selected to consider the other wonderful pets at the shelter hoping for a new home. They all have their own unique stories.”
