Due to the current circumstances we are all facing in regard to COVID-19, we have chosen to stop performing home visits at this time. Home visits are an essential part of our application process for new potential adopters and foster homes, but it is too great of a risk to ask our volunteers to enter someone’s home – for both the volunteer and the applicant. We want to do our part to support the CDC’s recommendation of social distancing. We do not yet know when we will resume home visits, but we will be closely monitoring the situation in the coming weeks and will provide an update to you all as decisions are made.

We also will not be taking owner surrenders! If you have a dog that you found or want to surrender please email us with picture and location

Thank you,

Stay safe, wash your hands, and social distance like a Shiba!

“Hi RSM, I need your help! I got out of my house and a nice person brought me to @ocsdranchosm near city hall. I don’t have my collar on so the #deputy couldn’t take me back home. I will be going to the Mission Viejo animal services until my human comes and picks me up. If you recognize me can you please help me get home!
