Don't let this grumpy face fool you! Big Ben is a TOTAL mush. Rescued from the Hesperia shelter, he loves nothing more than to hang out with his human, kneading and purring contentedly. If you're looking for unconditional love and support, he’s definitely your guy!

Ideally suited to someone who wants lots of interaction with their cat, Ben just can’t seem to get enough pets and attention. There is no place this quintessential “people” cat would rather be than in your lap, on your bed or draped across your desk staring at you with affection. Endearing and sweet, this 3yr old is kind of like a dog that purrs; a perfect cat for those seeking a loyal and ever-present companion.

About New Beginnings for Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a no-kill rescue group in Southern California. Our primary focus is rescuing animals off of death row and local high-kill shelters before they are to be euthanized. We then either board them or place them in foster homes so we can better assess their personalities before placing them in loving homes. All our animals are examined by our veterinarians, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, FELV/FIV tested if they are cats, flea treated and dewormed if needed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cats can be seen 7 days a week at:
PETsMART Aliso Viejo
26762 Aliso Creek Rd.
Aliso Viejo, CA 92656
Adoption hours: Saturday and Sunday 12 noon - 4 p.m.

Some of our cats are also in foster homes so please call Hana at (949) 716-0538 or email her at to set up an appointment to visit a kitty in foster care or to visit them at Petsmart.

Please call 949-348-8057 or to set up an appointment to visit with one of our wonderful dogs available for adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

All interested parties are required to fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. This helps us in placing the right animal in the right home. Our goal is to place our rescued animals in the right new forever home. Most of these animals have been thru so much and we want to make their transition into their new homes goes as smoothly as possible. Please visit our website for more information or our calander of adoption events for our dogs and where you can come to visit our wonderful kitties.
