Pet of the Week – Hermione

If you love Hermione of Harry Potter fame, you’ll love our Hermione too. She came into the shelter as a stray with another cat who has since been adopted. But that hasn’t stopped Hermione from being her usual social, outgoing and affectionate self. She has her friends at the County’s animal care facility in Carlsbad and she’s still hopeful she’ll get the purr-fect forever home. Purr-haps that could be your home?

Hermione is 8 years old and has already been spayed. She’s considered a “diamond in the rough” because she’s been at the shelter for over 30 days. That means her adoption fee is reduced to half of the normal fee and is only $29.

But if you come down to the shelter Saturday, Nov. 19 or Sunday, Nov. 20, County Animal Services is holding a “Fall in Love” special and all cats and dogs are half price.  That means Hermione could go home with you for only $14.50 and that includes current vaccinations, viral testing, flea control, a microchip plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days. You can’t beat that!

If you’d like to meet Hermione, come on down to 2481 Palomar Airport Road and ask for her by name or her animal ID number A1734807. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
