Pets of the Week: Meet Gobber & Poppy!


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.


Gobber is super cuddly, very energetic, is as smart as a whip, and loves food! This 3-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Shepherd mix needs an adopter with a lot of patience and the time to properly train him.

Since he has such high energy, going on daily walks or playing fetch will get him ready to relax at the end of the day.

This goofy guy gets very excited when he plays and can get mouthy, but with time, he can learn the dos and don’ts of playtime. Gobber spent a couple of months in foster and got better about walking on a leash, and he learned how to sit and shake! Come meet Gobber and see his potential for yourself!


Poppy is 13 years young and very stunning. She is a very loving lady that just wants to be admired and adored by her human. She loves getting lots of pets, taking naps in the sun, and eating soft food.

If you’re looking for a needy cat that will follow you wherever you go and is very talkative, then Poppy is the gal for you! This sweetheart thinks it’s always a good time to cuddle. Poppy can’t wait to be your best friend. Adopt her today; she’s more than ready to be spoiled!

Check out the Pets of the Week video on the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter Facebook or Instagram to see just how sweet he really is!
