Mission Viejo Animal Services Center

To find sweet cats and kittens forever homes, the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center is hosting the “Home for the Meowlidays” special adoption event through December 22.

Beginning tomorrow, all cats and kittens are available for adoption for only $20.  Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) is paying all fees except for the cost of the microchip for approved applicants.

Along with all felines, select canines – James, Roxy, Linus and Tommy – will be available to approved applicants for $20.

If you want to add a new furry member to your family, consider adopting an adult cat from the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.

Through the weekend, all adult cats are available to approved applicants for only $20, thanks to a promotion sponsored by the Dedicated Animal Welfare Group (DAWG).

Senior pets tend to spend the most time at shelters or rescues before finding their forever homes; however, there are many benefits to selecting an older pet. They are lower-maintenance; well-mannered; already litter-box trained; and tend to be better around kids.

Are you looking for new furry baby to add to your family? Head to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center to meet the adorable kittens waiting to be adopted.

Typically, it’s tough to find a kitten in shelters this time of year, but the center is brimming with about a dozen kittens still waiting for loving families.   Fall is a great time to welcome a new family member into your home to allow the kitty to settle in before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. 

Arizona Jake is a purebred Bluetick Coonhound, a rare breed in this area and diamond in the rough for hound lovers.  Arizona is typical for this breed: well-muscled, sleek and racy and ready-to-go anywhere on a moment’s notice.  Blueticks are named for their gorgeous mottled or “ticked” black and blue pattern of their coat.   Like all coonhound breeds, the bluetick is an American creation, dating back to the founding of the country.  At that time, they were used by frontiersmen to track prey and are still used for this in many areas of the nation. 

To celebrate and thank the men and women of the armed services this Memorial Day, the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center is waiving the adoption fee for veterans this holiday weekend May 25-26. 

We have many dogs, cats and rabbits that need new homes.  Approved applicants will only pay for the microchip, vaccines and license. To participate, veterans must show proof of past military service.

With a New Year, the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center has resolved two things – to help Maggie lose weight and find her a great home.   Maggie, a 3-year-old miniature pinscher, was surrendered to the center when her owner was moved to an assisted-living facility.  Obviously, her former owner spoiled her with food because she came to us weighing a whopping 37 pounds!   Because she has been on a doggie diet while here, she has already lost 7 pounds, but she has a ways to go.

Sweet Taffy has not had the easiest start to her life.  Found as a stray in Lake Elsinore, she was taken to a shelter, but her owners never looked for her, and her time was running out.  Since the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center rescues dogs from that area, she was brought here to find a home that would commit to her for her lifetime.  Unfortunately, she was adopted once but immediately returned because of her activity level and prey drive.  So, she is waiting again for someone who will understand her need for exercise, training and consistency. 

There is no better time or month to open your heart and home to this 3 year-old female tabby named June.  A Mission Viejo family found the expectant mother outside and provided her with a safe place to have her kittens. Unfortunately the family had allergies so June was relinquished to the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center along with 2 of her kittens. June’s babies were just as beautiful as she is, with long brown tabby fur that flickers with amber undertones in the sunlight.

Kitten season is well underway at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center with many adorable kittens – like Treavor – ready for adoption.

From sleek black kitties to charming calicos and everything in between, the center has the kitten of your dreams!

If you’re ready to add a furry bundle of joy to your family, visit the center at 28095 Hillcrest today.  All kittens will go home vaccinated, dewormed, spayed or neutered and microchipped.

Mission Viejo Animal Services Center is delighted to work with the Laguna Hills High School Theater Department to promote the school’s presentation of “Legally Blonde, The Musical.” This fabulously fun award-winning show is based on the popular movie of the same name and follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams.
