Seven dogs from Loreto, Baja California transferred to San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus


The dogs are now available for adoption as part of “Adopt a Shelter Dog” month.

The dogs were stray, struggling to survive on the streets in Loreto when they were saved by the private dog rescue Segunda Chansa. They were medically evaluated and placed on a three-month quarantine in Mexico before being transported by Patrick T. McGorky of Segundo Chansa to San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus on Tuesday.

Once the dogs arrived in Oceanside, the SDHS team conducted its own medical exams and behavioral evaluations of the dogs. Each dog was also vaccinated and microchipped, before being made available for adoption.

The dogs are Timothy, an 8-month-old American pit bull terrier; Besos a 6-month-old shepherd; Enriqa, a one-year-old shepherd; Dulce, a year-old shepherd; Canela, a 3-year-old shepherd; Lisa, a 3-year-old terrier; and Dulzura, a 3-year-old Chihuahua.

So far, San Diego Humane Society’s Oceanside Campus has welcomed 18 dogs from Loreto during the 2020-21 fiscal year.

“We are so pleased to be able to help and give these dogs a second chance,” said Ayeshah Al-Humaidhi, senior director of animal welfare.
