The Pet Rescue Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization that seeks to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome pets from high kill shelters and is temporarily housed inside the Alicia Pet Care Center at 25800 Jeronimo Rd. Suite 100, Mission Viejo, CA 92691.

Who We Are

Our Goal is to rescue animals from high kill shelters before euthansia. We also want to work with the community on education as to the pet overpopulation problem, spay/neuter and rescue programs. In this effort, we provide a no-kill, veterinary supervised temporary sanctuary for these pets while we work to locate an adopting family.

Additionally, The Pet Rescue Center allocates financial grants, to provide critical or lifesaving treatments for pets with special needs to our rescues and to the public.
We have many wonderful pets available for adoption at 3 locations:

There are so many ways you can help support The Pet Rescue Center.

How about:

Organizing a Bake Sale or Lemonade Stand.

Organizing a Pet Supply/Toy Drive

These are great ways you can help. You can host one of these events in your neighborhood, at a local pet store, school, church ,etc. Proceeds would benefit the animals and would help our rescue efforts. This is a great opportunity that familes, groups and church groups can do together. While this is not a hands on opportunity working with the animals, it is a great way to become involved in supporting the animals and our rescue efforts


If you are not able to adopt at this time but are looking for ways you can help, we are always fundraising to help raise money for our furry ones, here are some of our fundraising projects we are working on right now:
