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.
