Pet of the Week – Rojo

Horse lovers, this one is for you.

Rojo is a handsome brown quarter horse stallion and he’s looking for new pastures. The 12-year-old and his friends were abandoned in Escondido. He’s now one of many horses neighing about the County Animal Shelters and while the lodgings are nice and all, they aren’t the same as forever homes!  

Come visit Rojo at the shelter at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. His animal ID number is A1607811, he’s microchipped and he’s available for just $100.

For more information on Rojo or any of his other horse friends in Carlsbad or the shelter in Bonita, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
