City of Mission Viejo Animal Services Center

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.

Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) is offering reduced adoption fees for any approved applicant.  You will pay only $20 for an adult cat’s microchip to start your new life together. Stop by to meet our chatty chestnut tabby, snuggle bug Persian kitty or gorgeous tuxedo girl.

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.

A 4-year-old pit bull terrier, Taupe is a gentle pup who loves attention.  Quiet and sweet, she will spend hours just cuddling with her person.  Taupe pulls a little while on the leash but is polite and well-trained.   However, she does not tolerate the company of other dogs, so she will receive free training to help her improve in this area.  

Woodrow, Kibble, Tiger Lily and Jackie have been at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center since February – a long time for cats at our shelter. They are being overlooked because of the available kittens but shouldn’t be because they’re great cats!

Woodrow is a bit on the shy side, preferring a quiet home, but loves to sit on your lap and will spend hours just hanging out with you.

Kibble has the cutest face.  He is independent and loves to play with ping-pong balls but also enjoys lap time.

Some homeless pets at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center are reaping the benefits of a couple’s generosity with new beds, toys and treats for the holiday season.
