Welcome to the Costa Mesa Adoption Center

This page will keep you up to date on all that is happening at our Costa Mesa Adoption Center. As you may know, Priceless Pets is a non-profit, no-kill pet rescue operating out of multiple storefront adoption centers known as “The Orphanage.” All animals are rescued from surrounding high-kill, high-access shelters, owner surrenders on a case-by-case basis, and other various circumstances. Come in and visit, we hope to meet you!

Location hours: Tuesday – Friday 12:00pm to 7:00pm, Saturday & Sunday 12:00pm – 5:00pm.

Costa Mesa Dog and Cat of the Month

Name: Snap

Sex: Female

Age: 5 Months

Breed: Pointer Mix

Snap, a remarkable pup, arrived at Priceless Pets from a rescue partner after a challenging start in life – found abandoned on the side of the road, alone, deaf, and mostly blind.

These special pups appear to carry two copies of the merle gene, which can lead to unique coat patterns but can also result in challenges like deafness and blindness when both copies are present. Snap, despite her obstacles, is an extraordinary soul who’s proven that nothing can dampen her fearless spirit.

Snap embodies a spirit of boundless curiosity and courage. You’d never guess she’s different from any other puppy. When introduced to new environments, she boldly explores, quickly mapping out her surroundings, and then embarks on thrilling adventures.

Snap is mastering her potty training and has a voracious appetite. She loves treats and is especially fond of plush toys, as well as playful sessions.

Surprisingly quiet and content, Snap enjoys peaceful moments and is ready to bring her joy and charm to a loving family. She’s poised to become an extraordinary addition to a lucky family.


Name: Nimoy
