KUSI’s Kacey McKinnon was at the San Diego Humane Society to also talk about naming nine Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound-Mix (3 week old) puppies and their mom who were recently rescued by Humane officers.

The public has until Sunday, April 18, 2021 to submit their name suggestions at sdhumane.org/puppies. San Diego Humane Society staff will choose the winning name and announce them on the organization’s social media channels on April 20th. Winners will also receive a “swag bag”.

The puppies and mom were rescued March 25, 2021, when San Diego Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement responded to a report of a stray dog who just delivered a litter of puppies in the 5200 block of La Paz Drive, 92114. When Humane Officers arrived, they found a mother dog who took shelter under a van during the rain where she gave birth to 10 puppies. SDHS’s Humane Officers carefully pulled them out, one by one. Sadly, one puppy was not alive, but the other nine appeared healthy.
