Meet Joy, a 2-1/2 year old, 39 pound, female, Hound mix who is up for adoption at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society.
Joy needs a patient home that will use positive reinforcement training. She does not like sharing attention with other animals, so she needs to be the only dog in her home. Joy also needs a family where someone can be at home with her much of the time, until she gets acclimated. Her adopters will need to start slowly and give Joy lots of options while she’s settling in. Get more info about Joy, HERE.
The $145 adoption fee for Joy includes medical exam, spay, up to date vaccinations, and registered microchip.

Each week our PAWS program introduces you to a lovable animal who needs a new home. PAWS is sponsored by Nick Adamo's Farmers insurance Agency. Nick Adamo is a huge dog lover and animal advocate. For the past 10 years, he has supported local humane society’s efforts in helping get animals adopted through Pet of the Week programs. Additionally, he has hosted and participated in many fundraising events including Paws in the Park, Dogs Golf Tournament that matches military veterans with service dogs and more. He started partnering with Rancho Coastal Humane Society 7 years ago because RCHS’ main goal is to encourage the adoption of animals into permanent, loving homes. RCHS’ adoption process is tailored to find the best match between people and pets and also promote humane ideals through education and community outreach pets and people.
If you have adopted a pet during COVID and are heading back to work, Rancho Coastal Humane Society has some helpful tips.
- Help your pet adjust to your changing schedule. Begin by leaving your pet alone in a “Retreat Area” for a few minutes. Turn on some music or the TV. Every time you do this, increase your pet’s time alone.
- Particularly with a new pet who you’ve never left alone before, watch for Separation Distress including destructive behaviors. Give them something to do, like a toy or a treat puzzle.
- Older pets who have adjusted to your stay-at-home schedule might be more “needy.” Be patient. Give them lots of reassurance that everything is going to be okay.
- If your dog has gotten used to 8 or 10 walks per day because you had nothing else to do, start cutting back. You can go for a walk without your pet. You still get your exercise, but it helps the pet adjust to the fact that things are changing.
