Two cats were adopted into loving homes earlier this month through the Fuzzy Pet Foundation event in Newport Beach. This weekend the group will be trying to find forever homes for more pets.
The pet adoptions will be held Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at JustFoodForDogs in Newport Beach. The adoptions are being hosted by the Fuzzy Pet Foundation, an all-breed, no-kill rescue organization, committed to stopping animal overpopulation and shelter killings. Sheila Choi, founder of TFPF, said at the last event, two cats -- Puddin' and Raini -- were adopted by local families.
"A really nice family saw her photo and bio on Patch, and came to our event wanting to adopt her," Choi said about Puddin'. "Puddin' is in a phenomenal home where she will be loved for life, and we were able to fill Puddin's spot with another animal in need."
Another group of dogs and cats are hoping to be adopted this Sunday. Candy, a one-year-old dog, was rescued from a family who could no longer afford a pet. According to TFPF, Candy enjoys walking with her harness on, loves being held, and likes car rides.
