I have adopted many dogs over the past 30 years here. Always helpful, and reasonable adoption fees. So glad they have helped our community all these years. Thanks for Happy, Tiger, Cindy, Chasey and now LUCY.

Great facility here in Irvine with kind workers and volunteers. I have adopted here previously and had an amazing new addition to the family. Always adopt first as these guys need forever homes. ????????????

Clean shelter. So happy that it has permitted animal viewing again without appointments even if for several hours daily.

Not many pets (Dogs) to visit. Only 20 Total and mostly large, a few Medium. We wanted a small adult Doggie. Only 1 small dog and was it wasn't available to touch or Pet. We could only see her in her cage with a note saying the dog was not available due to medical issues and was scheduled for a Dr. Appt the next day. Sad Day for us.

One of the nicest Shelters you will ever visit. Plenty of grassy-space to play with your potential dog or pup. Did I see a chicken or two roamin' around? Clean, Odor-Free rooms to get acquainted with cats or kittens. The cat-cages are Massive compared to other Shelters. There's a great set of rabbit-hutches too. You can tell all of these animals are loved and cared for. And you can buy some Critter Supplies at the Office. The whole place is full of good vibes, lots of volunteers and staff to help you. When you're there it's not's hopeful!

I used to work here. The shelter is now a husk of its great former self. Just walking in I can tell the current admin doesn’t care about animals and finding them homes. Zero effort. Too many empty kennels. No staff. When I was here the admin was passionate about helping pets find new homes. We always had a ton of dogs and cats and would take them in from over loaded high kill shelter’s. We had events frequently on weekends and the place was always packed with potential adopters, volunteers, and employees. The staff was awesome. Now they are all gone and the place is a ghost town. It’s really sad because it’s a ton of wasted space and a really nice park like atmosphere. Whoever the current head admin is here should resign and go be a bum somewhere else that doesn’t hurt the animals of Southern California.

If I were you I would never go to this place the employees are rude and insensitive. We had to relinquish our dog and instead of just taking the dog they told my son she was just going to be put down. It was hard enough to just relinquish her let alone be told they were just going to put her down.

The best place to adopt a rescue pet. They have good sized areas for dogs and cats, plus dedicated visit rooms for cats and outside areas for dogs. They also have rabbits available for adoption. In COVID-19 times, appointments and masks are required. Appointments allow 15 minutes of alone time with potential pets and a max of 2 animals per visit.

I highly recommend going here if you are considering getting a pet. There are always plenty of deserving animals needing a loving home at the shelter every day.
