My story

AMARETTO (A046021) is a young spayed Cinnamon female rabbit, orange with black highlights. She was about 6 months old when she arrived at the shelter in May 2021 and has been vaccinated for RHDV2. Amaretto is a fun, friendly girl. Her most striking feature is her HUGE ears! She loves to zip around, checking things out when she's in new environments. She isn't crazy about being picked up and held, but she does enjoy some nice head petting. Amaretto has great litter box habits and would make an entertaining house rabbit for a lucky family!

More about this rescue

Lost and abandoned animals have a second chance at a good life– thanks to the Pet Project Foundation. The mission of the Pet Project Foundation is “to enhance the quality of life of all companion animals in a pro-humane manner through compassion, responsibility, education and service”. Nowhere is this mission better exemplified than through our ongoing support of the shelter. This special shelter provides food, housing, exercise, medical care, and love for homeless animals until they are reunited with their owners or permanent, loving homes are found. Over 38,000 animals have come through our shelter where they are safely housed and loved until permanent homes can be found. Our pro-humane philosophy ensures that no adoptable animal will ever be euthanized, regardless of how long it takes to find them a new home. This philosophy comes at a price, however. It is through both the dollars and volunteer-man-hours donated by the Pet Project Foundation that we’re able to preserve our pro-humane approach. In addition to supplying funding for ALL food and medical care at the shelter, PPF also has contributed dollars for retractable awnings over the dog kennels, a new industrial laundry room, addition of a special area for rabbits (the Rabbitat), upgrades to the medical treatment room, and improvements to the cat room. PPF also contributes a significant portion of the funding for the kennel attendants’ salaries, and underwrites a program for residents of San Clemente and Dana Point whereby pet owners can be reimbursed for a portion of the cost of having their dogs, cats or rabbits spayed or neutered. PPF also recently funded the hiring of a full-time trainer for our shelter dogs to ensure each dog receives positive reinforcement training through treat and praise prior to adoption. Pet Project Foundation volunteers log over 26,000 hours of service at the shelter each year. These dedicated volunteers walk dogs, calm the fears of anxious cats, hop and groom rabbits, and perform a host of administrative tasks - along with dozens of other activities needed to help keep the shelter in operation. It is through the help of these volunteers – and the generous support of residents and businesses in our communities – that we can ensure the care and comfort of these animals. Come visit the shelter that was voted “Best Place to Adopt a Pet” by Orange Coast Magazine. See for yourself the wonderful care these homeless animals receive – and just maybe you’ll find a new friend and companion in the process! 221 Avenida Fabricante, San Clemente, CA 92672 Our hours are: Monday = CLOSED Tuesday = 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Wednesday = 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM Thursday thru Saturday = 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Sunday = 12 noon to 3:00 PM The kennels close 15 minutes prior to the shelter closing.
