Mission Viejo Animal Services Center welcomes 11 dogs from overcrowded shelters

dogs at animal shelter

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center recently welcomed 11 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.

For more information on adopting one of these furry friends, visit cmvas.org or call 949-470-3045.

I had to put my 15yr old English Spaniel/ American Cocker on Feb 19th. I rescued her when she ws 2 no 1/2
from SDCR in 2008.
I love dogs & want to rescue again now, about 4- 6 yrs old and small 20-25 lbs. I’m retired as of Aug last yr so pretty
much home. I live in Laguna Niguel and
would appreciate hearing from you.
