Hi! My name is KAI. I am a female, red and white Chihuahua - Smooth Coated mix. The shelter staff think I am about 2 years and 6 months old. I have been at the shelter since Jan 02, 2020.

I LOVE TO: Socialize and play with other small dogs.

I HAVE: A great smile and a loving personality.

I GET ALONG WELL WITH: Adults and calm children of all ages.

I WOULD RATHER NOT: Be left alone for long periods of time.

I NEED: To be an indoor dog, with supervised visits outside, because of my small stature!

I AM: Happy, friendly and sweet!


Please review our adoption criteria before submitting your application!

Welcome to the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter

  • An application must be submitted prior to an interaction with one of our animals.  This offers us the opportunity to start you in the right direction in looking for a new pet.
  • We may take multiple applications on the animals, and do not disclose the number of applications currently on file
  • Our adoption process is not first-come, first-served.  The supervisory staff reviews all applications and makes a decision that they feel is the best placement for both the animal's and the applicant's needs.
  • The timeline for the applications process on each animal can be different.  We do our best to accommodate each applicant's requirement for applications, however, an adoption approval may be made as soon as we have an applicant that meets the animal's adoption criteria and completes all required interactions.
  • All household members must interact with the animal.  We do this to ensure that all family members, and the animal you're interested in, are a match.
  • All dogs in the household will need to come in to interact as well.  If the dog will be frequently interacting with other dogs, such as those owned by family members, friends, etc., we recommend they come in as well to interact to ensure a successful adoption.
  • You need to be 18 years or older to complete an application.
  • We reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason.
  • Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met.
