Are you looking for a pint-sized pooch to add heaps of love to your life? I am a bigger than average Yorkie (14 pounds) with a very devoted, sweet and mellow personality. I love everyone! Strangers, children, other dogs – even cats. Unlike most Yorkshire Terriers, I am not yappy and snappy. I am a love dog! I live in Irvine, CA with my owner, but will be happy to come and live where you do, as long as you come and meet my owner and take me home with you.

I am just 4 years old, very healthy, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. I will bring all my belongings with me to my new home. Yup! A ready to love pup!

My owner loves me so much. She is heartbroken to have to look for a new home for me, but she realizes that her lifestyle is not ideal for raising a lap dog. She works very long hours, which means I am home all alone so much of the time. I love human companionship so much – it just isn’t fair to me.

I would very much love to find owners who have tons of time to spend with me. It would be great to have a fenced backyard to play in, or daily trips to the dog park. I am such a sociable, friendly little guy. I love to go on rides in the car, as long as it’s not too hot outside! What I want the very most is a stable, loving home with someone who has plenty of room in their heart (and lap) to make me their focus, rather than an afterthought.

Please offer me a loving home today. I am as cute as a bug’s ear, and promise to make you smile every day for the rest of our lives together.

Love and licks,

About Orange County Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
