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: Clarice (Now Sloane!)

Sex: Female

Age: 3 years

Breed: Great Dane

Beautiful Clarice came to Priceless Pets from a local shelter after she had been found as a stray. She spent a little time relaxing in foster care:

“Clarice is a very healthy Great Dane with a silky, shiny black coat and golden eyes. She’s very big and absolutely beautiful! Once she settles in, she is very affectionate and only wants to be with her people. She loves belly rubs, butt rubs, and laying with her head in your lap. But she is also a very active and playful girl. She needs one long walk or two shorter walks a day, and a yard where she can toss her toys around. She has been learning how to walk on a leash but will require continued training not to jump – she is also stubborn so consistency is important. She will also ‘counter surf’ since she is so tall. Not recommended for smaller children, but would be ideal for an active family.”



Name: Minty

Sex: Female

Age: 3 years

Breed: Domestic Shorthair

Minty is a wonderful family cat who enjoys playing almost as much as she loves lounging with her family. One of her favorite things in the community room is the cat scratcher! When she’s not spending time soaking up the affection of our volunteers, she also likes to lounge on the cat tree. Minty came to us when her family had to surrender her because of a family member’s severe allergies. Although she may be a little shy at first, after a few pets and head scratches she’ll show you just how affectionate she is. Minty lived with another cat and a cat-friendly dog in her former home. Because of that, we believe that with a proper introduction, she would be okay with cat-friendly resident pets.
