Adopt-a-Pet: Bruiser and Annabelle


Bruiser is a 4-year-old, red and white, male Boxer. He is friendly and well mannered, leash trained and good with other dogs. Bruiser’s handlers say he would make a great addition to most any home. He is already neutered and ready for his new forever family. Bruiser’s Intake number is 2123444, and his Reference Picture number is 7400.

Annabelle is a 4-month-old, brown, female Domestic Short Hair. She is friendly and good with other cats. According to her handlers, Annabelle is a very sweet kitten and would be a wonderful family pet. She is already litter-box trained but will need to be neutered before going to her forever home. Annabelle’s Intake number is 244554, and her Reference Picture number is 7343.

To adopt either of these pets, contact Animal Friends of the Valleys at 674-0618. The shelter is located at 33751 Mission Trail in Wildomar. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It serves Canyon Lake and surrounding areas, offering animals for adoption as well as providing animal control and spay/neuter services.

• AFV has a spay and neuter clinic and also offers vaccinations and microchip implants at the old shelter location, 29001 Bastron Ave. in Lake Elsinore. It is open Mondays and Thursdays only. For an appointment, call 951-674-7729 (SPAY) or 951-374-3491.

• Residents can help save animals that would otherwise be put down by providing temporary housing. Information regarding the foster program, low-cost vaccination clinics, and more can be found at or call 951-471-8344.

• AFV is asking for help with their care of homeless cats by purchasing Tidy Cats litter (clumping or non-clumping) and/or Friskies Pate Classic canned food. “With so many cats and kittens being cared for at this time our supply is low,” says AFV caretakers.

Those interested can visit to view available animals, for more information or to make a gift that can be designated for litter or canned wet food with a personal note in the section provided. Also, please “Like” them on Facebook.

AFV wishes to thank everyone for their help with supporting the homeless.
