Ivy is a 2-year-old orange tabby cat.  Since most orange tabbies are male, Ivy is a fairly rare cat. When she arrived at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, she had six kittens who were all quickly adopted, but Ivy is still waiting for her forever  home.  Independent and sassy, Ivy needs an owner who understands that she enjoys her alone time just as much as she craves attention. Ivy would do well in a home where she is the only pet because she deserves to be the center of attention.  She is a fun and feisty kitty who will bring entertainment into the lives of her new family.

Tugboat is a male terrier mix who is just over a year old.  If you are looking for a little dog with big personality, Tugboat is your dog!   True to his breed, he is fun, independent, and active.  Terriers were bred to dig out burrowed animals, so they can be very focused and intense.  In addition, terriers tend to have an abundance of energy and to be incredibly athletic.   For this reason, a busy terrier is a happy terrier!  Tugboat would thrive in an environment where he can participate in hiking, jogging, and long walks.  He may do well with another dog, but he is particular about his canine friends, so a dog introduction would be required.  He loves every person that he meets, and he is extremely affectionate and loving.

Vega & Franny

Vega and Franny make quite a pair.  These brother and sister cats are about one year old, and have grown up together and formed a very close bond.  Vega is a striking blue-eyed Siamese with beautiful seal points, while Franny is a unique calico with two different colored eyes—one is green and one is blue, and both are inquisitive and memorable.

These two have made quite an impression at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, and when not exploring, the cats are often found cuddled up together.

Being so close, it would be best for Vega and Franny to be adopted together.  They can be shy upon first meeting, so would seem to do best in a quiet home which has plenty of gentle love available.  Meet this rare pair and all the other available cats at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.

4 year old Lucy is the whole package:  loveable, fun, energetic, and smart.   Lucy is sure to keep you on your toes.  Unfortunately, despite her spunky traits, Lucy is one of the shelter’s longest residents. She continues to be over-looked by potential adopters, which is heart-breaking because just one look into her smokey eyes and it’s clear that Lucy has so much love to give. Lucy desires human attention and will show her appreciation with a ton of kisses. Toys are a must in Lucy’s life as she will entertain herself playing with her favorites. Lucy would do well in an active, busy household . Come down to the shelter and meet Lucy. She will go home spayed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped.
