Interested in adopting a dog — or just taking a peek at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs 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 dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)
