On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Orange County Animal Control officers recovered an approximately 18-month-old female Pug in the city of Fullerton. The dog was abandoned in a box with devastating trauma leaving her with half of both hind legs. An investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this case is asked to contact OC Animal Care at (714) 796-6460.

OC Animal Care is committed to providing this precious Pug with every opportunity to live a long and happy life. OC Animal Care staff have named her "Mila", short for milagro, which means "miracle" in Spanish. She has a long road to recovery, but with the generosity of our community we have the oppo1tunity to ensure Mila heals from her injuries both physically and emotionally and is given the chance to find the loving home she deserves.

Please DONATE today to our Medical Pets fund through Noble Friends
Foundation for OC Animal Care at: https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=7489c0. One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Mila's care and any additional funds will be used for animals in need of medical rehabilitation in the future.

OC Animal Care thanks you for supporting our life saving efforts and we will be sending out updates on Mila's progress and all along her journey to recovery. ( View PDF )

News ImageSeptember 21, 2018  Sgt. Onkka Rescues Raccoons!Sgt. Onkka responded to a call about two raccoons that were stuck in a dumpster. Did you know that raccoons often dumpster dive for food and are unable to get out? Propping a piece of wood against the dumster wall and walking away can help trapped raccoons climb out and find their way home. Thanks Sgt. Onkka for helping these raccoons return home safely!

Remember never try to touch or pet a racoon or any wildlife you may see. To learn more about willife in orange County, visit http://www.ocpetinfo.com/services/wildlife.
