News ImageAugust 17, 2017  AKC Pet Disaster Relief FundraiserHelp us help animals in times of a disaster! OC Animal Care is partnering with the American Kennel Club and their pet disaster relief program to raise money for a disaster trailer. Your participation will help us raise the funds necessary to get two trailers that will support the community. Any donation helps! Thank you for support our shelter animals.

The offer from AKC Reunite is so amazing. In Southern California So Cal Animal Response Team (SCART), San Diego County Animal Care, Chula Vista Animal Care and Ventura County Animal Care already have raised funds and have their trailers ready to help in an emergency. Please help OC Animal Care be prepared to help in case a disaster (fire, flood, earthquake) happens in Orange County.

In an ongoing effort to monitor the effectiveness and appropriateness of [OCCR Program’s] fundraising/marketing efforts, please feel free to provide any relevant comments, feedback, or critiques at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YGVBRH ( View PDF )

News ImageJune 1, 2017  EXTENDED THROUGH SEPTEMBER 30TH: SUMMER TRAPPED CAT PROTOCOL

Due to the hot weather expected through September we will be extending the summer protocol for trapped cats until 9/30/2017.

OC Animal Care will not pick up trapped cats except when the cat is injured, sick, has been involved in a bite or there are other special circumstances.

The intent of the summer protocol is to limit the number of feral cats sitting in traps during the hot summer months. We encourage citizens to focus trapping efforts during the cooler months of the year. Thank you OC citizens for your cooperation!
