New rescue dogs arrive from over crowded shelter
The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center recently welcomed seven dogs to the shelter through the Mission for Home Rescue program.
The Mission for Home Rescue program involves handpicking pets from overcrowded shelters and bringing them here to make them available for adoption locally. Funded exclusively through the nonprofit Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG), this program is a win-win for the animals and shelters alike.
Bubba adoption update
I wanted to give another big thank you for the adoption of my English Bulldog Bubba. He is now 3 years old! He is the most loving dog and gets to go on many adventures. He is well loved and always happy.
Thank you again for bringing such joy to our lives. Here is a picture of him enjoying his birthday treat!
Havana came in as a stray from Laguna Niguel. When she arrived at the center she was very shy and nervous. With help of staff and volunteers she began trusting new people. She was adopted to a wonderful home over the weekend. We are so happy for her!
Frankie is a total love! This beautiful little 8-year-old Tortie, a stray from Laguna Hills, is now available for adoption.
Wolfie adoption update
The Baker family recently expressed its gratitude to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center for the family’s new adopted dog. Wolfie was a rescue through our “Mission for Home” Rescue Program. He came from a shelter in the Inland Empire where they receive a large number of dogs daily
February is adopt a rabbit month
Besides being cute and furry, rabbits have amazing personalities. They can make wonderful companions and bond closely with their owners. Like dogs, rabbits show affection. They have big personalities and love to play. They are guaranteed to make you smile.
