Not all animals have the good fortune to have a home for a lifetime. That is why Community Animal Network promotes animals at the weekend pet adoption events at Fashion Island that are sponsored by Russo's Pet Experience.

It is a challenging task to find new homes for adult animals, no matter how beautiful, because of the perception that they may have bad habits, or could have medical problems, or were unloved, or abused.

Community Animal Network rescue phone lines indicate that very caring local families have to give up their beloved pets for some really sad reasons. You can help people, too, by adopting animals from Community Animal Network.

Reggie and Roxy look like the Siamese Snowshoe breed and are very loved by the Davis family, but their 4-month-old baby is having difficulty breathing in the home.

DiAnna Pfaff-Martin, the founder of Community Animal Network, is the go-to person for local people who need help finding new homes for their animals. "Our residents treat their animals like family members," she says. "There should be no hesitation in adopting an adult animal that someone has loved."

Reggie plays fetch like a dog with his toys, and Roxy loves to bat around balls of crumpled paper. They have been raised on better-than-premium foods and spoiled with love by their family. They are best friends and would be adopted as a pair.

Please tell others about Reggie and Roxy and call (949) 759-3646 or email contact@animalnetwork.org for more information.
