About new beginnings for animals
po box 2444, mission viejo, CA 92656, US
Located in the Mission Viejo/Aliso Viejo area of Orange County, we are a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to rescuing animals from shelters. We give the rescued animal appropriate immunizations, alter them as necessary, validate their temperament and socialization abilities and make them available for adoption.
Our goal is to save an animal from euthanasia and to place it in a new, loving home which will be a beneficial, nurturing, and symbiotic environment for both the saved pet and its new owners.
We rescue and adopt out dogs, both large and small, puppies, cats, and kittens.
New Beginnings does not have salaried employees - we rely solely on volunteers to support our rescue activities. We are always looking for new members to join our organization The following are some of the areas where help is needed:
