Sprinkle is spayed and ready for adoption. Her intake number is 395008. Reference: picture: Sprinkle.

Yvette is a two-year-old domestic short hair cat who was brought into the shelter with her four babies. While her babies have all been adopted, Yvette is still looking for a “fur”ever home. Her caretaker says she sweet and gorgeous. Yvette is spayed and waiting at the Menifee Petco for a new family to take her home. Her intake number is 403573. Reference picture: Yvette.
