News ImageJanuary 17, 2019  PRESS RELEASE: Volunteers Needed to Help Count Individuals Experiencing Homelessness in Orange CountySanta Ana, Calif. (January 7, 2019) – The County of Orange is seeking around 1,000 volunteers to sign up to help with the 2019 Point In Time count, taking place Wednesday, January 23, and Thursday, January 24.

The Point In Time is a biennial effort required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, counting people experiencing homelessness in a given point in time during the last 10 days in January. The data resulting from the 2019 Point In Time count will provide information to help the County and its partners better understand and address homelessness.

Volunteers are primarily needed to serve as field surveyors, who will canvass predesignated areas across Orange County and conduct surveys of homeless individuals. Volunteers are also needed to serve as team captains, host leads, host team members, photographers and videographers, and A/V and tech support. Volunteer opportunities are available in morning shifts and evening shifts on both January 23 and 24. Volunteers are projected to mostly complete the count on January 23, with volunteers following up on January 24 to cover any areas that might have been missed. (See descriptions of volunteer opportunities and links to register here.)
News ImageJanuary 15, 2019  Congrats December Volunteer of the Month, Linda!Linda has been chosen for Volunteer of the Month. We love that Linda is always there for the dogs. She is dedicated to our furry friends and is a reliable dog walker and socializer. Not only is she a dependable dog volunteer, but she is an amazing photographer. Her photos capture the essence of our shelter dogs, and help make them more adoptable by capturing their personalities. She is loved by the dogs and we are so happy to have her on our volunteer team. Congrats!


News ImageDecember 26, 2018  OC Animal Care's December Events Helped Shelter Pets in Need!OC Animal Care hosted their annual Pawliday Adoption Event and Santa Photos every Saturday during the month of December! The shelter's Pawliday event was a huge success! 98 pets were adopted and found fur-ever homes on Saturday, December 22. OC Parks, OC Libraries and the Pet Adoption Center of Orange County joined in the festivities and hosted a booth to raise awareness about their organization. OC Waste and Recycle also provided giveaways and educational material during the event to educate the public on the ‘scoop on poop!’ We cannot thank everyone enough for adopting and coming out to support OC Animal Care!

The shelter also hosted Santa Photos every Saturday in December until Christmas! OC Animal Care offered the public to bring their furry friend down to take a photo with jolly St. Nick to raise funds for the shelter’s medical pets program. A total of $1,423.80 was raised to help our shelter pets through the Noble Friends Foundation for OC Animal Care! Special thanks to all who came out to take a photo with Santa, and for OC Animal Care’s amazing volunteers who ran the Santa Photo booth! You guys ROCK!

News ImageDecember 21, 2018  Online Adoption Campaign Helps 241 Cats find Homes!OC Animal Care’s online C.A.T. adoption campaign held November 28-December 15 helped hundreds of cats find loving homes! OC Animal Care was at cat-pacity with cats and kittens at the beginning of November. Staff members had to think fast to help this population in need and the idea of the C.A.T. was born! C.A.T. is an acronym for the “Cutest of All Time” species that had overrun the shelter. OC Animal Care staff members joined in the fun and stepped into the spotlight to create fun videos and promotional content for the event – and their hard work paid off! Over the course of the adoption campaign, 241 cats found their loving homes! Shelter staff and volunteers are ecstatic they had the opportunity to help so many of Orange County’s feline friends. OC Animal Care would like to thank all of their amazing staff who went above and beyond, and the community who adopted and helped spread the word about the “Cutest of All Time” species!
