Pets of the Week: Meet Bon Bon & Eclipse, find upcoming shelter events!


Looking to adopt or foster animals from the local shelter? Here are the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter pets of the week!

Spread the word to help these animals find their forever homes.


Brace yourself to fall in love! Bon Bon (48262821) is a 7-year-old Red Australian Cattle Dog/Moutain Cur mix. He’s a mellow senior looking for his retirement home.

Bon Bon had a rough life before coming to SMRAS, but he doesn’t let it bring him down!

This sweet boy is potty-trained, loves getting head scratches, and playing with squeaky toys!

He’s not a fetch kind of dog, he likes a calm environment where he can follow his human everywhere they go and cozy up to bask in the sun while enjoying a pig ear chew.

Bon Bon would do good in a home with another low-energy dog like himself.

He has boundaries and doesn’t like when they’re crossed, but don’t we all! Bon Bon is blind in his right eye but has no problem getting around.

Will you open your home and heart to his little senior man?


Eclipse (48854428) is the sweetest medium-haired cat. If you’re a bit on the lazy side, this 7-pound boy would be perfect in your home!

He loves to lay around and make biscuits. Even though that’s a very important job, he does like to take breaks to play with his toys.

Eclipse enjoys the company of other cats and wouldn’t mind having a sibling around to take naps with.

This 1-year-old cuddle bug will fill your life with so much serotonin. Come adopt Eclipse today!

Both pets are available for adoption at the San Marcos Regional Shelter.

To meet their pets, please visit in person at 750 River Rd, San Marcos, open from noon – 7 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and from noon – 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
