Are you looking for a fun new friend? Meet Checkers!

Checkers (A379650) is an 8-year-old dog who came to us as a stray. He is super sweet and friendly, and he can't wait to find a forever home to spend his golden years in. Checkers is very mellow and laid-back. He enjoys attention and he likes to be petted. His ideal home would be one where he can relax and be spoiled with love.

 

For the month of June, dance on over to Orange County Animal Services and participate in our Meow and Bow Wow Luau adoption promotion! The adoption fee will be reduced to either $5, $10 or $15. Fees includes sterilization, vaccines and microchip identification.
