Give Chinook kitty a loving home for Christmas
It will be a “Meow-ry” Christmas if you adopt Chinook, the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She’s a 1 year old, 10 pound, domestic, short-haired, Tabby cat. You can almost imagine her snuggled on Santa’s lap in front of a warm fire on a cold winter night.

Chinook was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program. She likes everyone she meets, whether they’re people or other cats. She adjusted to the Cattery right away, but what she really needs is a loving home. As a one year-old car, she’s reached a certain level of maturity…But sometimes she just can’t help herself and she zooms around the room like a kitten. AS you can tell from her picture, Chinook is a stunningly beautiful young cat.

Chinook is waiting in the Cattery at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas with just one wish, that her new family adopts her before Christmas!

Meet Chinook at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Find out how you can adopt Chinook or sponsor her until she finds a great new family to live with.

Adopt pet of the week, Hans, at Rancho Coastal Humane Society
Hans is the adoptable Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. He’s an 8 year old, 10 pound, short-haired cat with a blue and white coat.

Hans was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from another animal shelter through the FOCAS program. He can fit into almost any home, and likes other cats. He’s laid back, but still very social and affectionate. Hans loves sitting on laps and having people pet him, and especially loves being near people so he can “talk” to them. Just the same, he’s also just as happy to sit by a window and watch the birds outside, right up until his eyes are too heavy to keep open, and he drifts off into a cat nap.

Hans is definitely an “all things to all people” kind of cat, who will be a great addition to any home!

Meet Hans at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. Find out how you can adopt Hans or sponsor him until his family finds him and takes him home.

The Great Pet Debate: Cats or Dogs?

Cats or dogs?

PennySaverUSA.com decided to settle that age-old debate once and for all by taking a poll of our staffers to see which animal makes a better pet.

Needless to say, our efforts to reach a definitive conclusion were an epic fail. The results showed why the cat vs. dog argument is never-ending… because people are truly split down the middle!

Out of the 13 PennySaverUSA.com staffers that participated in the debate, six picked dogs, five picked cats and two love both.

Which do you prefer? Let us know by leaving a comment.

Here is their reasoning:

Those who picked dogs

I love Dogs! My family only had one cat and she would hide away from us and scratch our arms when we tried to hold her. I’ve been scared of cats ever since. I fell in love with dogs when we got our German Shepherd Duke, pictured to the right. He would lick our faces instead of trying to scratch them off. From him, I learned to adore big dogs. The bigger the dog, the cuter he is,” is what I like to say.” – Alisha

Dogs!!!!! Dogs are loyal and just love to be loved on. Cats on the other hand are spastic. One minute they are in the dinning room and for no apparent reason they feel the need to dart to the bedroom.  They are not social animals they do not like to cuddle and I am allergic to them so we will never own one.” – Kimberly

My vote is for Dogs. Reason? Well, let’s just say, I am rather fond of the skin covering my organs. Cat’s are fickle, random, and are lacking in the EQ (emotional intelligence) department. Whereas doggies are all love all the time. One look into those big round eyes and the whole world disappears.” – Lorena

Dogs……NO CONTEST. Why?  They are excited to see you every time you come back. They show appreciation for what you do for them. They are anxious to protect you if they think something or someone is a threat.” – Loren

Dogs! Because they listen to you. Have you ever tried walking a cat?  Not cool.” – Drew

I don’t know if it’s because I’ve never really bonded with a cat or maybe I just enjoy the friendliness of dogs? If I had to choose it would be dogs.” – Jesse

Those who picked cats

I prefer cats, for no other reason than I prefer them. They don’t do anything special that a dog wouldn’t do. But I think its funny when they do silly things, like sleep in shoe boxes (see photo on the right) …

They’re also just better for cuddling, they purr, do happy feet, and give little kitty massages.” — Michael

I like cats because they are pretty much a low-maintenance pet and they are not as messy.” – Jonathan

Dogs certainly have their lovable qualities, but I prefer cats because they will give you affection when you want it, but will leave you alone when you don’t.  Plus, you don’t have to potty train them – a major positive!” – Jason

Cats, for sure! They don’t require too much attention but will give you some when you need it…and they can fit in small spaces and look cute like the one on the right!” – Kelly

Cats, they’re generally more quiet and peaceful.” – Som

Those who couldn’t decide

Dogs and cats are just like potato chips…YOU JUST CANT HAVE ONE!!!  I have come to that conclusion.  See this great example.

See…what did I tell you” — Veronica

I have two dogs and two cats, and if I choose one over the other, they might go on strike. I love that my dogs are always happy to see me and greet me at the door when I come home, and I love that my cats cuddle with us at night. My house wouldn’t be complete without both.” – Elizabeth
