City of Mission Viejo Animal Services Center

The volunteers at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center epitomize the true spirit of the holidays. They collected and distributed much-needed pet food and supplies to residents in need during this difficult time.  

“We are happy to be able to provide the essential pet supplies to proactively aid pet owners who may be struggling to care for their pets instead of resorting to relinquishment or abandonment,” said volunteer coordinator Giselle Leal.

Cookie and Grover are delightful 4-month-old kittens that would make a great addition to any home.  Because they are extremely bonded, these brothers must go home together, but you can get them both for the price of one for double the fun!

Cookie is friendly and playful while Grover is affectionate and sweet. Some folks are hesitant to adopt them since they are black, but in many places and cultures, black cats are actually a symbol of good luck and prosperity. In any case, they are guaranteed to bring you holiday joy and much happiness in the new year!

Epitomizing her name, Raggedy Ann arrived at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center as a stray kitten in bad condition. She was emaciated, dehydrated and had issues with her eyes. After a few days of receiving fluids, eye medication and plenty of food and loving care, Raggedy Ann improved and went into foster care until old enough to return to the shelter.

With National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week underway, the City is taking the opportunity to recognize the dedicated officers of the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.

Officer Erik Mansoor is one of eight highly trained officers serving Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills and Rancho Santa Margarita.

Two extremely sweet, special cats are waiting for their forever homes this holiday season.

Both cats are friendly and loving but have special needs.  Ashley May, a 1-year-old domestic kitty, was born without upper eyelids making her vision slightly less than perfect.  She needs a lifetime of over-the-counter artificial tears to keep her eyes lubricated.  However, this does not slow her down. In fact, she is an active, fun and cuddly cat who just needs a calm, stable home.  She will do great once she learns the layout of her new home. 

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center on Tuesday, October 15 will host its next low-cost pet vaccination clinic for Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita and Laguna Hills residents.

The clinic is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at 28095 Hillcrest.

Are you seeking a new feline friend who likes to snuggle? Perhaps it’s a charming chestnut tabby with golden eyes or a perfectly marked tuxedo cat that’s calling your name? Whatever your feline fancy, head to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center for a special two-week promotion on adult cats.

Save the date for Sunday, October 13 when the DAWG Walk & Adoption Extravaganza returns to the Village Green at Oso Viejo Community Park.

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center and Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) team up for this fun family event that features animal rescue groups offering various breeds of dogs for adoption; a walk along the Oso Creek Trail with your favorite K-9; Howl-A-Ween pet costume contest; raffle prizes; kid activities; exhibitors with unique pet products and services; and more. 

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center will take part in the annual Clear the Shelters event on August 17, offering every homeless pet available for adoption at a huge discount.

It’s one of the busiest kitten seasons on record for the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center, which has a plethora of adorable kittens ready for forever homes. 

In the spirit of the season, we’re offering a special offer of two kittens for the price of one.  Kittens adopted in pairs tend to adjust to their new home faster and always have a playmate, even when you’re away from home.  Through July 31, approved applicants will pay only $100 for two fluffy bundles of joy.

Visit our center at 28095 Hillcrest today to meet the available kittens.
