Pet of the Week – Nelson

Meet our handsome friend Nelson! This active 3-year-old boxer/pit bull mix has been very busy with social events lately but we know he can squeeze you into his calendar.

He’s been attending multiple adoption events in the community and admirers always comment on how well-behaved he is in front of company.

If you’d like to visit Nelson and hit the doggie party circuit together, stop by County Animal Services’ animal care facility in Carlsbad.

The shelter is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and is located at 2481 Palomar Airport Road.

Nelson’s animal ID number is A1741527 and his adoption fee is only $35. That price includes current vaccinations, microchip and registration, flea control plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days.

For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
