Dogs are in need of homes all over the world, but the homeless dogs in Anaheim, California are lucky to have a few great shelters that care for them and help to find them new homes.
Located in nearby Orange, California, the OC Animal Care facility helps pets in the Anaheim area find new forever families. In the past year, the shelter has taken in more than 30,000 homeless cats, dogs, bunnies, and other pets. They care for abandoned, ill, injured, healthy, and aggressive dogs and cats. If an animal is in need, OC Animal Care takes it in, cares for it, and tries to find it a new, loving home.
The Best Friends Animal Society is located near Anaheim, California. This no-kill shelter has a mission to bring all homeless pets into loving homes. The shelter works to promote kindness to animals, while demonstrating compassion and respect to all living creatures. As a non-profit animal shelter, the Best Friends Animal Society runs off of volunteers and donations from the public. Since opening in the 1980s, the shelter has been taking animals deemed unadoptable and rehabilitating them to find them permanent homes. Now, at any given time, there are 1,600 animals living in the sanctuary.
If you live in Anaheim, California, and are ready to welcome a new pet into your home, contact OC Animal Care or Best Friends Animal Society to start the adoption process. Each shelter is home to a number of stray animals looking for new homes.
