Adopt-a-Pet: Brownie and Leila


Brownie is a four-year-old brown and black German shepherd. Her caretakers say she is an active girl who enjoys running in a big yard and chasing the ball. She is good with other dogs and with kids.

Her previous owners debarked her, so her bark is a bit muffled. Brownie is spayed and ready to go to her “fur”ever home. Her intake number is 260088. Her reference picture number is 4087.

Leila is a six-month-old domestic short hair. Her caretakers say she is a loving girl and enjoys climbing into a lap and getting pet. She is litter-box trained and good with cats and older kids. Leila will need to be fixed before going to her “fur”ever home. Her intake number is 359323. Her reference picture number is 4430.

All dog and cat adoption fees include a microchip, basic shelter vaccines (excluding rabies) and a free veterinarian check-up. All cats/kittens, pit bulls and Chihuahua adoptions are just $5 (spay/neuter fees, if applicable, are additional).

To adopt either of these pets, contact Animal Friends of the Valleys (AFV) at 951-674-0618. The shelter is located at 33751 Mission Trail in Wildomar.
