Moreno Valley Animal Shelter Seeks Adoption
Moreno Valley, CA
- Moreno Valley is increasing the number of adoptions for
homeless animals and wants to do even more. In an effort to
boost the number of positive outcomes for homeless companion
animals, the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter has launched the
Adoption Ambassador Program sponsored, in part by the
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
(ASPCA). Adoption Ambassadors foster, evaluate and ultimately
find the animal a loving home. Moreno Valley is able to
launch this program with the help of a $2,500 ASPCA grant.
"The City of Moreno Valley greatly
appreciates the ASPCA's ongoing partnership and their
generous contributions for this and other programs."
said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez.
"Increasing adoption rates is job #1 at the Animal
Shelter and a top priority for the City Council."
The Adoption Ambassador Program is an exciting
program that many animal shelters are now using to provide a
way for the community to be involved. Volunteers, or
ambassadors, and staff work together to create the best
possible scenario for homeless dogs and cats. Ambassadors
receive training that provides them with the right tools to
successfully adopt a pet into a new, lifelong loving home.
This program is a win/win for the foster program and homeless

several positive impacts to individual households as well as the
community by reducing the number of unwanted litters, increasing the

residency such as a valid ID that reflects a current address or a copy of
