Pet of the Week – Emma

Our girl Emma has been wishing on a star for a forever home.

This 4-year-old spayed tortoise shell cat has been at the shelter since Nov. 12, and she’s more than ready to become the darling of someone’s family.

Now that those storm clouds blocking the night sky seem to be clearing a bit, maybe Emma’s star will help her wish come true.

If she brings a twinkle to your eye and you would like to meet Emma, stop by 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Her ID number is A1637887 and if you’d like to take her home, her adoption fee is only $35 and includes a microchip and a free veterinary examination.

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