Some of these faces are so, so sad!! Maybe they know it's getting a little chillier and they're not looking forward to winter at the shelter. Won't someone consider adopting one of these precious sweeties?{L}: Sindy the kitty   |   {R}: Eddie, like Frasier's dog!LeoStill waiting for someone to come along and name him! Someone needs a haircut! Raisin {L}: No name but a face to melt hearts!     |     {R}: Patches

The Orange County Humane Society is currently operating at capacity due to a recent rash of people surrendering their pets to them (how sad!).  This often occurs when owners are forced to move somewhere that doesn't accommodate animals, or pets are turned over by family when their owner passes away, etc.  If you're thinking of adopting, now is the time to do so!

Orange County Humane Society pets: December 2010

If this hasn't been brought to your attention yet, please check out this article regarding the shocking discovery of frostbitten dogs at the San Bernardino County Shelter and put in your two cents, either by calling the County Supervisors (whose telephone numbers are listed in the article) or e-mailing Doug Smith, the irresponsible shelter Supervising Officer.  It's a sorry state of affairs when Californians' tax dollars are accepted for the care of animals but not actually put towards the care of animals.That said, shelters such as those run by the ASPCA and the Humane Society are not government-funded like the County Shelters are and rely on donations to keep their wards warm and comfortable during the winter.  This holiday season in addition to monetary donations, the OC Humane Society is also accepting blankets, portable heaters, heating pads, pet cots and pet cot covers, and dog sweaters as well as items from their ongoing donation wishlist.Who's ready for some furry-faced sweetness?

Pet Portraits for November

EMERGENCY ALERT! The Orange County Humane Society shelter is currently FULL. If you are considering adopting a pet, now is the time to take action and check out their animals!  They have dogs and cats of all ages, sizes, and colors, as well as rabbits, on occasion.  When the shelter reaches max capacity they are forced to turn away other healthy and adoptable unwanted animals to an unimaginable fate!The shelter is also always accepting donations of pet food, blankets, litter, cleaning supplies, and more. Check out their ongoing wish list if you are considering charity for the holiday season!Murdy has a snaggletooth smileThis is no place for a puppy to spend the winter!Lucky shows his fangs(L): Kobe (R): Butters...my own rabbit's namesake!Prince is excited to be photographed!Jamie waits for a new owner
