Learn about Naloxone, also known as Narcan, the drug-reversing agent for opioid overdoses during the next City of Mission Viejo Drug Prevention Coalition meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 20 at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center.
Pharmacist Elaine Nguyen, chair of the Orange County Pharmacists Association and assistant professor at American University of Health Services, will discuss when and how to use this drug to save a life along with what drugs are classified as opioids and the signs and symptoms to look for if your teenager is overdosing.

Their personalities are already developed, so the cat you fall in love here will be the same at home. They’re done growing, have outgrown their adolescent behaviors and are ready to be in forever homes.
A few senior cats are available for adoption and will go home spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated to approved applicants for $20.00. So, don’t delay in meeting these lovable felines today.

Snake season is underway. The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center received its first snake call of the year this week – that turned out to be a juvenile Southern Pacific Rattlesnake. The annual snake season is typically from March to October. Snakes keep our natural ecosystems working properly and are key in balancing the rodent population.
Every year, our Animal Services Officers respond to hundreds of calls for snakes. In south Orange County, Southern Pacific Rattlesnakes and Red Diamond Rattlesnakes exist. Depicted in these photos, the snakes are extremely dangerous and can cause severe and sometimes fatal injuries.
Here are some tips to keep snakes at bay:
Most snakes encountered are non-venomous, while the rattlesnake is the only venomous snake native to California. Observing the shape of the snake’s head, body and tail is a good way to determine if a snake is venomous.
If you’ve encountered a rattlesnake on your property or public area, call the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center at 949-470-3045. Our officers are trained to handle and remove them safely. If you or someone else is bitten, call 911 immediately. #mvcitynews #mvchamber #missionviejochamber #missionviejo #snakealert
