Capri is an 8 year old female Pit Bull who is up for adoption at the Ranch Coastal Human Society in San Diego.
Capri spent several months in a shelter in Sonora, Mexico, before being transferred to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program.
She will do best with a family that has a yard and can spend a lot of time with it.
Capri must “trade”. You can’t take something away from him. You have to exchange it for something as good or better. It teaches him to trust.
Capri’s $ 145 adoption fee includes the medical examination, neutering, up-to-date vaccinations, registered chip, and a one-year license if her new home is under the jurisdiction of the Department of Animal Services of the San Diego Humane Society.

Each week our PAWS program introduces you to an adorable pet in need of a new home. PAWS is sponsored by Nick Adamo’s Farmers Insurance Agency. Nick Adamo is a big dog lover and animal advocate. For the past 10 years, he has supported the efforts of the local humanitarian society to help get pets adopted through the Pet of the Week programs. Additionally, he has hosted and participated in numerous fundraising events including Paws in the Park, Dogs Golf Tournament which matches military veterans with assistance dogs and more. He started associating with the Rancho Coastal Humane Society 7 years ago because the main goal of RCHS is to encourage the adoption of animals into permanent and loving homes. The RCHS adoption process is designed to find the best match between people and pets and also to promote human ideals through education and awareness of pets and people.
If you’ve adopted a pet during COVID and are returning to work, the Rancho Coastal Humane Society has some helpful tips.
Help your pet adjust to your changing schedule. Start by leaving your pet alone in a “retreat area” for a few minutes. Turn on the music or the TV. Each time you do this, increase the time your pet spends alone.
Especially with a new animal you’ve never left alone before, watch for separation distress, including destructive behaviors. Give them something to do, like a toy or a treat.
Older pets that have adjusted to your home stay may be more “needy.” Be patient. Give them lots of reassurance that everything is going to be okay.
If your dog got used to 8 or 10 walks a day because you had nothing else to do, start cutting back. You can walk around without your pet. You are still exercising, but it helps the animal adjust to the fact that things are changing.
