OC Humane Society: October

img_7226

The Orange County Humane Society is up to their ears in bunnies!  I can personally testify that once you realize they are NOT like cats or dogs, rabbits make for excellent pets; they are quiet, low-maintenance (compared to a dog), and excellent for folks living in apartments or other small living quarters.  Do your research, however---rabbits need space to run and rooms with open cables and wires need to be bunnyproofed!

Orange County Humane Society June pet photos

Hooray! Luminaire Images is the official photographer for the Orange County Humane Society, and it's time for some pics of their June wards!

Mowgli and Baloo are BFF's and are hoping to be adopted together. It's actually rather smart...just when you think you can't resist the cuteness of one, the other will appear and overpower you in a hailstorm of Pitiful Puppy Eyes!

Freckles aspires to be an American Idol

Snoopy's photo is dying to be captioned.  I kind of want to put a little thought bubble above his head that reads, "You want me to do what?"

Pluto has the worst story I've ever heard---on top of being a stray at a shelter to begin with (which obviously is bad enough), she was recently adopted by an elderly woman who was in a car crash while driving Pluto home from the shelter! The woman was paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of her life, and poor traumatized Pluto is now back at the shelter because her new owner can't care for her after the wreck! I'm not making that up. Pluto needs somebody to show her that car rides can be fun again!

Jumper likes to stand on his hind legs. Not everyone figures out there are ways around being a foot tall!

The weird thing about Tahoe is that he looks and acts JUST like Charlie from All Dogs Go to Heaven. He's got the same friendly grin and floppy Don Bluth movement...no, seriously! So there you have it...if you ever wanted a dog like the one from that movie, Tahoe is at the shelter and waiting for you.

I accidentally called Jack "Toto" while photographing him, I hope he wasn't insulted.

"Give me your best puppy face! Good dogs!!"

"Too much puppyface! TOO MUCH!!" (Deena really knew how to work it, doesn't this just break your heart??)

Cats and kittens are 25% off this month at the OCHS shelter---it's not too late to pick up this sweetheart on the cheap!

Seal ("named after Heidi Klum's husband," I was told), is a little cross-eyed. Not that Seal-the-celeb is cross-eyed, too.
