Pets of the Week – A Terrific Trio

Let me introduce you to these Animal Services volunteer favorites: Colleen, Bambi and Mai Lin. These three sturdy seniors came in together a couple of months ago. Sadly, their owner had passed away. All three are loving and happy girls who are very easy to walk on leash together. They also get along beautifully in their shared double kennel.

Mai Lin, the Chihuahua-pug mix, is getting down to her ideal weight now. Her two younger “sisters,” both Chihuahua-Jack Russell terrier mixes, still have a ways to go with their weight-loss plan. Despite their excess weight, they are all quite energetic on their walks. They know their names and come when called.colleen_bambi_mailin_walking

If you are interested in any of our three, Colleen (A1736549), Bambi (A1736548), and Mai Lin (A1736547), visit them 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.

Their adoption fee is only $35.00 each which includes current vaccinations and flea control plus a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
