Closed on New Year’s Day, San Diego Humane Society is urging people finding stray pets over the holiday to isolate the animal from their pets, keep them safe overnight and bring them to an animal shelter when they reopen Thursday.
Options for those finding stray animals:
— Trying to find the owner on local Next Door apps or other social media platforms;
— Those who can’t keep the animal overnight should call local law enforcement to contact on-call humane officers for assistance;
— To report an animal emergency call a local law enforcement agency; and
— Injured or orphaned wild animals should be brought to Project Wildlife after-hours drop-off for care.
