Adopt a New Friend at WorldFest!
Many dogs and cats in need of good homes will be at the festival!

Did you know that every year, thousands of animals are euthanized due to overpopulation? But you can help prevent this! If you have an animal companion, PLEASE spay or neuter them. The other solution, open your heart and home to a new friend. There are a wide variety of animals just waiting for someone like you to share their lives with. Visit our adoption area and change your life! Their love is a pure, unconditional love.

Make a difference and save a life!


Some of our animals up for adoption:
 
BINGO AND CUSTER: Bingo's morning routine consists of dragging his veggies into his pigloo to eat. He likes running through his tunnels, and towel tents are always a hit. Bingo is still getting used to cavy-savvy humans. Talking to the boys when approaching the cage or before coming around any corners/doorways is much appreciated. Bingo will reward you by settling down nicely for lap time. Custer was born into the rescue in October. Custer loves to play and wheek updates about his day. Custer likes to squint when he is happy and when extra excited he squints with both eyes. They are a great bonded pair for a family. (Orange County Cavy Haven)
 
SCRAPPY: This is Scrappy, 3 year old miniature pinscher. He is very friendly. Loves kids. He was found in the streets looking for food. Scrappy is neutered up to date on vaccines and microchiped. He is looking for his forever home. (RescueMe Pups)
 
 
 
COLE: This is cole he's  1 1/2 years old Staffordshire pit bull mix we rescued him from the Carson shelter. He's been in our rescue for a year. He is very friendly with people and kids. He does not do good with other dogs. Cole is smart and playfull, he knows his basic commands. He has been looking for his forever home. (RescueMe Pups)
