Pet of the Week – Spike

Say hello to Spike. He’s our staff’s favorite bird, but don’t let Spike’s neighbors find out he is the fav. They might get peckish!

Our rooster is people oriented and really likes to be hand fed. Sometimes he even likes to be petted.

Spike spends his days in our corral area with four neighbors. He is big, gorgeous and would benefit from having his own roost to rule.

His animal ID number is A1722552 and he can be found at the 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. His fee is only $5.

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