Name: Mila (MEE-lah)
Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Smooth Coated Collie mix
Mila is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 4-1/2-year-old, 36-pound, female, Jack Russell Terrier / Smooth Coated Collie mix.
Mila and her 5 siblings were transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from a crowded shelter in Mississippi through Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS.) She was adopted, now returned after almost four years.
She needs a home where there will be a person or another dog with her most of the time. She doesn’t like being left alone.
The $145 adoption fee for Mila includes medical exam, spay, up to date vaccinations, registered microchip, and a one-year license if her new home is in the jurisdiction of San Diego Humane Society.
For more information visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas or log on to www.SDpets.org.
Open 11 to 4 Friday through Monday, and Wednesday and Thursday by appointment.
National Mutt Day is held twice each year, July 31st and December 2nd, encouraging Americans to save and celebrate mixed breed dogs.
Don’t let the word “mutt” fool you! A mutt is simply a dog of mixed breed. Mixed breed dogs learn, obey, and train the same as purebreds.
While it might not be as easy to identify a mutt (without a DNA test) their love and companionship are just as pure.
The perfect Mutt might be waiting for you! For information about adoption or to sponsor a pet, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, call 760-753-6413, or log on to www.SDpets.org.
