Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some cuddly canines seeking their forever homes? There are dozens of deserving puppies up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Santa Ana.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of puppies currently available for adoption.
