Laguna Beach Animal Shelter's Adoption Process

Dogs and cats which remain unclaimed are seen by a veterinarian, bathed and groomed, vaccinated, wormed, micro-chipped, and neutered/spayed, in addition to receiving any other needed medical treatment. For this reason, the animals put up for adoption are healthy and have no serious behavior problems. The aim of our adoption policy is to place our animals in the most compatible situations possible. To ensure the most appropriate match, the adoption procedure requires an application and waiting period. The Adoption Committee then meets to review applications and decide on the most suitable placement, which results in the greatest chance of a permanent, rewarding and peaceful existence between animal and owner. This policy has kept our return rate at 5-10%, while the national average at other shelters is closer to 50%. No animals will be shipped out of Southern California we only adopt locally.

About Laguna Beach Animal Shelter

The City of Laguna Beach Animal Shelter was started in 1975 by a group of dedicated volunteers, The Pet Responsibility Committee (now PUP Laguna Beach), who lobbied the City of Laguna Beach to purchase the old Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals building on Laguna Canyon Road for use as a shelter. Today, the shelter serves the residents of Laguna Beach and Laguna Woods by providing temporary care of sick, injured, and strayed or abandoned animals rescued by the animal services officers in the City of Laguna Beach and the City of Laguna Woods.

The shelter is funded by the City of Laguna Beach and supported by generous donations. Donations to PUP Laguna Beach fund the rehabilitation of our animals that require medical attention so that healthy pets can be put up for adoption. Donations are also used to help rescue dogs and cats.

At any one time, the facility houses dogs, cats, birds, and a small number of other animals. Every abandoned animal that comes through the Shelter is held for seven days for reclaiming by its owner. As a small community, the claim-rate is extremely high at 80%. We have been very fortunate to receive support from our community, the local veterinarians, the Pacific Wildlife project, the Bluebell Cat Foundation, and the citizens who appear with helping hands whenever there is a fire or flood in the canyon. We greatly appreciate the tremendous support from the community!
