Pet of the Week – Tom

Meet Tom! This dashing 4-year-old, medium-haired red tabby came into our care as a stray on Oct. 18. This charming fellow is outgoing, social, curious and active. On top of that, one caregiver says he has a lovely broad nose!

Tom has been at the County’s animal care facility in Carlsbad for more than 30 days. That means his adoption fee is “purr-fectly priced” to half the normal fee and you can take him home for only $29. That price includes current vaccinations, viral testing, microchip and registration, flea control plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days.

See if Tom charms you too. You can find him lounging about at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Just ask for him by his animal ID number, A1744398. The shelter is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
