Meet Lyla! She's 5 years old, affectionate, and has become a favorite at the Orange County shelter



Meet Lyla!

This sweet girl was brought into our shelter as a stray and she is still on the lookout for her fur-ever home. Lyla (A436049) is 5 years old and she has tested positive for heartworm disease, but thanks to a generous sponsor, much of her treatment cost will be covered. Lyla gets along with other dogs and has become a staff favorite at the shelter; she is very affectionate to all who encounter her. If you would like to learn more about Lyla we recommend coming into our shelter in person to meet this sweet girl. We hope you will love her as much as we have.
