Vinnie's Story...
Vinnie is a four-year-old, neutered, Lhasa Apso/schnauzer mix. He and his buddy Hurley were relinquished to The Pet Rescue Center just a few short weeks ago. After their owners had their first child 2 years ago, the boys were banned to the backyard life. With the second baby on the way their mom knew she had to do something better for them. After meeting these two kids it was clear that they would be wonderful pets for new loving families. Vinnie's got a great smile and seems to always be happy to see you. He plays well with others and is very sweet with children. He is fully house trained and would be a great couch buddy. He has a clean bill of health and would love to go to a new home as soon as he can find it. Come down to The PRC and meet him today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vinnie, a Mission Viejo Lhasa Apso/Schnauzer (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Schnauzer (Standard) for sale in Mission Viejo, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Schnauzer (Standard) dog from a breeder in Mission Viejo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mission Viejo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mission Viejo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Lhasa Apso/Schnauzer (Standard) breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Schnauzer (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mission Viejo paves the way for another one to be saved.
