News ImageApril 25, 2018  2 Shelter Dogs Adopted During the WAND BBQ Event!On Saturday April 21st OC Animal Care was at the 22nd Annual West Anaheim Neighborhood Development Western BBQ at Maxwell Park. From 10 am to 2pm community members could participate in a number of activities from games, competitions, demonstrations, local vendors and interact with animals through pony rides and visiting potbellied pigs.

OC Animal Care was in attendance with four volunteers, and four dogs: Julia, Anita, Claudeen and Lilly. Julia and Anita both found their fur-ever homes at the event! Julia went home with an Anaheim Chief Advisory Board Member for the Anaheim Police Department and Anita went home with an Anaheim Fire and Rescue Community Engagement Officer. Not only were OC Animal Care staff and volunteers excited to see dogs go home, but they were also excited to see a friendly face. One of the potbellied pigs that was at the event was an OC Animal Care alumni! Sir Archibald was adopted in April 2017 and has been living his best life with his forever mom ever since.

The event brought a lot of people from the Anaheim community together and happy endings.

News ImageApril 10, 2018  Orange Turns 130 Grand Re-Opening of Yorba Park was a Fun Filled Day for Dog LoversOn Saturday April 7, 2018, the Orange Turns 130 Grand Re-Opening of Yorba Park brought together a community of dog lovers. From pet owners and people looking to adopt a new furry family member, there were people who started arriving at 9:30 am to await the 10:00 am ribbon cutting.

While waiting for the ribbon cutting and even after, guests could walk down a path of community resources like OC Animal Care, OC Waste and Recycling, local emergency pet hospitals, ASPCA, and local pet campus that provide a range of services from grooming, boarding, training classes and carnival games.

As the park filled with happy and excited dogs big, small, short and tall, and as families filled the walkway of tents, five volunteers and three staff members from OC Animal Care promoted the upcoming Spring Fling event on April 28th. They also answered questions about the new facility, ways to get involved, and about current animals available for adoption. Not only were OC Animal Care humans there but so were Snoopy, Glen and Brit, three dogs who were ready to go home and find their new families.

By 12:00 pm the crowds had thinned and lucky Britt was adopted. Britt was adopted by the woman who had actually helped bring her in as a stray and wanted to offer her a forever home. Although Snoopy and Glen came back to the shelter that day, they too were later adopted as well.

Orange Turns 130 Grand Re-Opening was an exciting few hours that brought some resources, awareness and fun to all who attended.


News ImageApril 5, 2018  Discarded Fishing Line is Dangerous to WildlifeOn Friday March 31, Sergeant Su and Officer Craig responded to Tri-City Park in response to a report of an American coot who had fishing line tangled around its left leg. Unfortunately after trying to lure other coots and the injured one, some resourceful use of Cheez-its, and creative expansions of a net, the team was unable to catch the bird. However, the public was very appreciative of the display of team effort and persistence!

Remember when you do go fishing, fishing line is potentially dangerous and harmful to wildlife so it is important to pick up all and any fishing line that you see to help create a safe home for our animals in the community!
