    Adopt Tessa: A Popular Pet

    March 24, 2015 at 11:07 am

    You know that kid in school who’s everybody’s friend? That’s Tessa, the cat who visited us today. She absolutely loves other cats, and her friendliness makes them love her right back. Still practically a kitten at 8 months old, she combines the playful energy of a young’un with the pleasant demeanor of a much older […]

    Adopt Melody: A Shy Sweetie

    March 17, 2015 at 10:24 am

    What if we told you that a Pit Bull was the sweetest, calmest, most loving dog we’ve met all year? Melody was initially very shy, but she soon warmed right up. It was all affection from then on, as she sought out all the laps and head rubs she could find. So while she may […]

    Adopt Mascara: A Serious Stunner

    March 10, 2015 at 11:14 am

    Looks aren’t everything, but they sure don’t hurt. The appropriately-named Mascara is one of the prettiest cats we’ve met – this yearling is dusted all over with streaks of white, orange and gray. She also has enormous, soulful green eyes, and elegant long ears. Mascara is a beauty. But she’s more than just a pretty […]

    Adopt Timon and Pumbaa: A Rare Breed

    March 3, 2015 at 10:25 am

    It isn’t often that a true rarity comes into WCHL (unless you count Ron Stutts). But today we were visited by Timon and Pumbaa, two Manx kittens. If you’ve never met a Manx, they’re an incredible breed. They have beautiful jungle cat stripes, adorable round faces, and long rabbit-style hind legs. But their most noticeable […]

    Adopt Portobella: A Friend To All

    February 10, 2015 at 11:15 am

    Anyone who says cats aren’t friendly hasn’t met Portobella. This jet-black shorthaired kitten never met another living creature she didn’t love, from adults to kids to cats to dogs to hamsters. But she isn’t in it for the roughhousing – she’s as gentle as can be. With her fine features and golden eyes, this eight-month-old […]

    Adopt Johnny And June: Two Peppy Puppies

    January 27, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Johnny and June walked the line right into our WCHL studios, and immediately won our hearts. These two youngsters (both around 4 months old) were found wandering as strays, and both have taken to people right away! Johnny is a beautiful (if unlikely) Lab-Dachshund mix, with a sleek brown coat and adorably floppy ears. He’s also […]

    Adopt Meg: A Tough Cookie

    January 20, 2015 at 11:50 am

    Meg doesn’t let her disability get in the way of enjoying life! This sleek grey stunner of a cat was rescued with a badly broken rear leg, and recently had it amputated. But given that she’s still so young (just six months old), that challenge has barely slowed her down. She runs and plays with […]

    Adopt Tiny: A Good-Hearted Fella

    January 6, 2015 at 11:26 am

    Sure, the cute little kittens get all the attention. But don’t forget about the older guys! Tiny (who isn’t so Tiny!) is a mature 9-year-old shorthair, with a beautiful light orange coat. After coming to the shelter because his previous owners got a divorce, he quickly became the elder statesman of the place. He wanders […]

    Adopt Milam And Fagan: Two Miracle Puppies

    December 30, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    Well, seven miracle puppies, really. But everyone at WCHL was thoroughly charmed by the two who visited us, Milam and her brother Fagan. Their very pregnant stray mother Bonny had evaded capture for weeks before finally giving birth near an industrial park on December 1st. The full litter was brought to Independent Animal Rescue to […]

    Adopt Alpha: A New Year’s Puppy

    December 23, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    This guy is so little, he doesn’t even have a name – just a litter position! The folks at Orange County Animal Shelter call him Alpha, since he’s the big dog in the family (if three pounds counts as big). In fact, he’s so little that you can’t even adopt him until New Year’s Eve […]
