Adoption Event at the San Juan PetSmart

We helped save lives this Valentine's Day weekend at the very successful Second Chance at Love adoption event at the PetSmart at 33963 Doheny Park Road, San Juan Capistrano.  The weather was great all three days of the event.  Four Orange County Pet Adoption Agencies had animals at the San Juan PetSmart to help find pets forever homes. OCpoundhounds, Capistrano Animal Rescue Effort (CARE,) the Ark of San Juan and Pet Project Foundation all had wonderful cats and dogs for adoption this past weekend.  Two dogs from Pet Project Foundation got to go to new homes on Saturday.

Several cats with CARE found homes this week. It was quite a busy weekend for CARE. The CARe Show that was postponed one week because of rain, coincided with the adoption event. There were commited volunteers at both places helping find homes for cats as well as raising funds to feed and house and provide veterinary services for them. The CARe show looked like a good time for all. There were even more dogs there than last year.

This is Mayor Uso with Cosmo, the German Shepherd Dog, one of two available for adoption with the Ark of San Juan Rescue.

The Mayor of San Juan Capistrano, Hon. Lon Uso showed up to support this event.  The Mayor is a long-time advocate of animal rescue. He even volunteered to handle one of the wonderful the dogs that are available for adoption.  Cosmo was on his best behavior for the event.  He really wants a place to call his own.
