Pets of the Week: Meet Chickorita & Carrot!

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.


Chickorita (49949694) is a very photogenic white ball of fluff who loves to greet new people with a big smile! She is two years old and weighs 58 pounds. In her free time, Chickorita enjoys going on walks, playing with squeaky toys, and getting lots of head scratches!

This sweet girl can be shy and timid around other dogs and loud noises, but she feels safe if her human is by her side. She would also prefer a home with no cats.

Chickorita does great with kids, is potty-trained, and does not get up on furniture. Come to the shelter and instantly fall in love with Chickorita!


Are you searching for a companion who wants nothing but love?

Then Carrot (50045693) is your man! This happy boy a low-energy 2-year-old who loves playing with toys and chasing around random hair ties lying on the floor.

Once he’s tired out from playing, Carrots will happily curl up in your lap and purr himself to sleep. He will do great with any family looking to add a little spunk into their life! Come meet him today!
