Saving Precious Lives
We're an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization based in Mission Viejo. Our five Board Members and 35 Volunteers are dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and cats in overcrowded shelters throughout California. Many of the animals we rescue have a slim chance of getting out of the shelter alive due to sickness, injury or lack of kennel space.

Since 2000, New Beginnings for Animals has rescued and adopted out over 4,000 dogs and cats from shelters throughout California.
Each animal we rescue is examined by a licensed veterinarian, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, bathed/groomed, flea treated and AVID microchipped. Our rescues are either fostered by families or boarded with veterinarians until they can be adopted into permanent, loving homes. All new homes are screened and home checked, and we're committed to the welfare of our rescued animals for the rest of their lives. We evaluate every animal's temperament and work with professional trainers to correct any behavioral issues. If for any reason an adoption doesn't work out, we require that the animal be returned to us.
New Beginnings for Animals doesn't discriminate against any animal based on breed, size or age--all dogs and cats are created equal in our eyes!
Our Featured Dog
Lucy is a 1-year-old, 45-lb. German Shepherd mix. She knows commands and enjoys time with people of all ages. She is a very smart and loving dog. Lucy should be the only dog in the home; she can be fine around other dogs while out for a walk but she needs to be allowed her own space.

Greta is about 2 yrs old and was rescued from the Devore shelter on her last day along with her babies, all her kittens found wonderful homes now it is her turn yet she continues to get overlooked. She is very petite and loves people but also enjoys her independance. She loves to play and hang out on the kitty tree.
