Pet of the Week – Casper

Remember Casper the friendly ghost? Well, our Casper is a friendly dog.

He’s a 7-year-old neutered male miniature poodle. He’s been here at the shelter since the beginning of June and desperately wants a new home. He even went out and got a new haircut!

If you think you’d like a friendly addition (dog not ghost) to your house, come meet Casper. You can be sure he won’t disappear on you!

You’ll find Casper at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. You can ask for him by name or his animal identification number, A1534418. His adoption fee is $35 and includes a microchip, vaccinations and a free veterinary examination. For more information, call (619) 767-2675 or visit
