Female Himalayans 

These last few weeks of a Corona del Mar resident’s life has been full of emotion. After loosing a mother and now a father moving into care facility, their beloved cats have needed to find refuge with Community Animal Network due to severe allergies.

 “We hope to place the two beautiful female Himalayan cats Miesha and Mimi as a pair” says, DiAnna Pfaff-Martin who believes animals do grieve and it would be best not to separate the bonded pair.  

FYI: Most municipal shelters (including Newport Beach ) will not take residents relinquished pets; forcing local animals to be turned over to the county shelter where over 50% of the animals loose their lives.

FIV Positive 

Snow Shoe Siamese Ragdoll Mix


I Found Someone That Loves "ME"! 

"Noah" the beautiful blue-eyed Siamese Snowshoe Ragdoll mix still needs a home. Noah has blossomed and is looking extremely beautiful since his rescue from the Newport back bay when he was found very thin and treated for bite wounds and tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). He's extremely affectionate and is seeking a home where he can be the only cat to love you.





Jake is a large well-trained Lab Ridgeback Mix who is now 6 ½ years old. Jake’s been part of the Fischer family since he was only a year old and the family is heart broken to give him up, but their three year old son’s allergies are worsening with time. Jake is great with other dogs both large and small and is friendly and mellow and good around kids. Jake is said to be a great family dog who needs a new home without cats.



Lab Ridgeback Mix 



Community Animal Network has quite a number of fabulous lap cats to choose from lately.  Most lap cats personalities are highly desired as they are calm lounge lizards that usually have good house manners. People seeking these qualities should really consider adopting animals over eight years old as they are just perfect for those who want a really loving cat. 

Tiffany is a large affectionate tabby lap cat. She is the kind of cat that would make a great companion for a senior person or anyone that desires an exceptional animal with good house manners. Like a good wine it is enhanced by age…Tiffany is thirteen and currently lives with a dog and other cats. 

People often overlook qualities and choose an animal by its’ color, sex and age.  When it comes down to getting the right pet choose the animal that has the best qualities for your home life. If you have a dog find an adult animal that currently  lives with a dog. 

Make a difference in an animal’s life; adopt an adult or senior pet. It’s life-saving! 

If you would like to give your support to our work; memo your tax-deductible donation; Rescue Operations”, tax ID 33-0971560 and mail to Community Animal Network, P.O. Box 8662 Newport Beach, CA, 92658.

  Two other available twelve year olds are the solid grey Russian Blue-look named Shamus and a gorgeous long hair black cat named Branford.


Our senior cats have been well cared for and come with a 30 day health guarantee. Veterinarians carefully examine and read their blood panels to confirm every organ is functioning properly. Community Animal Network even cleans their teeth if necessary. We welcome you to explore the idea of adopting great mature cats!  


Silver Persian Mixes

"Coco & Healy" 

Two long hair silver grey Persian mix sisters were adopted as kittens from our Network in August 2004 and now need new homes because their family is moving back to England permanently.  Two weeks remain before the family is leaving for the UK and we need someone to step up and help these two by fostering them or adopting the two.  

Many countries still enforce a very strong quarantine and England ’s is said to be avoided as some don’t survive illnesses caught while in there. This time of year, it takes over 90 days to find a new home for an adult cat as people are focusing on the tiny ones. Adult cats are dying for your help! Please help save lives adopt a cat not a kitten.


See animals on our website or at Fashion Island every weekend from 12 noon – 4:00pm. Or help by donating to “feed the kittens”; memo your check non-profit tax ID 33-0971560 and mail to Community Animal Network, P.O. Box 8662 Newport Beach, CA, 92658.





Kimba, Gatina, Felix and Toulouse were only two and a half weeks old when they were rescued and transferred along with their mom Duchess to a Community Animal Network foster home. Duchess’s kitten family is now seven and a half weeks old and is just the beginning of the dreaded Spring kitten season which will consume much of the organizations funds to feed and maintain their vet medical needs.


Twenty-five dollars will buy enough kitten formula to feed four abandoned babies for a week. Kittens need round the clock feedings until four weeks old and most babies wean between six and seven weeks old. Volunteers are needed and the supplies and vet services are provided by Community Animal Network. You may be surprised that quiet bottle feeders may be welcome at animal friendly businesses, so why not ask your boss if you could help?


At this time, we have a total of nine pregnant cats, four nursing moms and a litter of newborns that are being bottle fed. If you come across kittens in your bushes please don’t take them until you are sure the mom was not just searching for food. The need is greater than we have volunteers so please consider calling 949.533.0411 to help. Donations graciously accepted to help feed the kitties this Spring.




Gulliver is a long hair sable cat who was one of the lucky ones pulled from the shelter’s undiscerning death row. Gulliver has qualities of a Main Coon; a large size, tuffs of hair in the ears and between the toes and a friendly personality. He was named after Gulliver’s Travels, kneads his paws at the sound of a soft voice and is very affectionate. For anyone liking that Main Coon size, we will have four “super size” cats this weekend for adoption and for those who fancy Siamese we will have two.   


You can help bring lost animals home by supporting the microchip identification system and having your dog or cat implanted and then registered in the national database. Gulliver is now protected by the tiny chip which will alert his new pet parents and the rescue organization if he was ever to need help again. Watch for information about our “Community Microchip Implant Event” that is coming soon.   


In order to save more lives please consider getting your lonely cat a friend! Do not get a kitten; adopt adult cats of similar age and energy levels. We have a thirty minute “Pet Parenting Class” in which we addresses how to introduce adult cats.



Two six month old tabby brothers Bill and George were rescued from an RV park. George is a long hair tabby that everyone thinks looks like a Main Coon cat and his brother George is a beautiful golden tabby, similar to the golden leopard Bengal cat. A neighbor called us after discovering Bill and George along with their sister inside a box secured with a brick on top. High anxiety and stress was apparent as the two male kittens suffered minor scratches after being locked in side the box with their sister Rosemary who was in heat.


Volunteer journalists are being welcomed for our new on-line magazine “The Animal Report”. A photo journalist intern from California State University Fullerton will be researching the cultural and socio-economic perception of peoples and present a photographic interpretation of the issues that may cause animal abuse and abandonment in America .


Always spay, neuter, microchip, collar and tag your pets.
