Is the new animal shelter a "pro-humane" shelter?
The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center is considered a "pro-humane" or “no-kill” animal shelter. Stray animals are cared for until they are reunited with their owners or until they can be placed in new permanent homes. Stray animals that are brought to the center are held a minimum of 4 full days awaiting redemption by their owner.

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center provides an animal adoption program that includes the screening and review of each individual adoption application to ensure responsible and long-term homes for all animals.
