Moreno Valley Animal Shelter Seeks Adoption Ambassadors

Moreno Valley is increasing the number of adoptions for homeless animals and wants to do even more. In an effort to boost the number of positive outcomes for homeless companion animals, the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter has launched the Adoption Ambassador Program sponsored, in part by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Adoption Ambassadors foster, evaluate and ultimately find the animal a loving home. Moreno Valley is able to launch this program with the help of a $2,500 ASPCA grant.

“The City of Moreno Valley greatly appreciates the ASPCA’s ongoing partnership and their generous contributions for this and other programs.” said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez. “Increasing adoption rates is job #1 at the Animal Shelter and a top priority for the City Council.”

The Adoption Ambassador Program is an exciting program that many animal shelters are now using to provide a way for the community to be involved. Volunteers, or ambassadors, and staff work together to create the best possible scenario for homeless dogs and cats- a forever loving home. Ambassadors receive training that provides them with the right tools to successfully adopt a pet into a new, lifelong loving home. This program is a win/win for the foster program and homeless animals.
