Pet of the Week

Stu News Newport is delighted to be working with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter to help get the word out in search of loving homes for pets that deserve a warm, nurturing environment and a place to call “home.”

The shelter is delighted to announce that Simba, a lovable 5-year-old mixed breed dog, is still available for adoption and waiting for his forever family. Since arriving to the shelter in March 2023, Simba has captured the hearts of staff and volunteers with his friendly nature.

Meet Simba

Simba came to the shelter with his sister Bella, who was recently adopted into a loving home. While they are thrilled for Bella, Simba is still hoping to find his perfect match. He is a social butterfly who gets along with other dogs.

When Simba first arrived, he was a bit overweight, but thanks to the dedicated care of the shelter team, he now looks fantastic and is in much better shape!

Anyone interested in meeting Simba, please contact the Newport Beach Animal Shelter at 949.718,3454, or email to schedule an appointment.

The shelter does require completed application forms for their animals, so simply print one up from their non-profit’s webpage at After it is completed, you can email it to, and upon review, they’ll call you to schedule an appointment. If you have any questions, call 949.718.3454.

On their wish list of needs is poop bags.
