I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

Dog Boarding in Costa Mesa

Homeless animals are abundant in California, and Costa Mesa is no exception. Luckily for animals in the area, there are animal shelters that take in homeless pets and provide medical care, shelter, and food for creatures in need.

Orange County Humane Society provides care for lost, sick, injured, abused, neglected, and unwanted animals in the area. While the shelter provides this care, it also attempts to find new homes for each animal that comes through its doors. The shelter mainly cares for cats and dogs, but reptiles and rodents also find their way into the shelter at times. The Orange County Humane Society is a non-profit organization that relies on donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees. Since opening in 1949, the shelter has helped thousands of homeless pets. All of the dogs and cats that leave the shelter have been spayed or neutered to help prevent more unwanted animals from being born.

Home Free Animal Rescue and Sanctuary works with the Newport Beach Police Department’s Animal Control division to keep animals out of danger on the streets. The shelter provides care for animals until they can be placed into new homes. As a non-profit organization, the shelter relies heavily on donations—both monetary and supplies. The shelter is always in need of more supplies to care for more homeless pets in the Costa Mesa area.

If you live in the Costa Mesa area, consider getting your next pet from one of the local shelters in the area to find a loving pet for your home.
