News ImageJune 1, 2017  SUMMER TRAPPED CAT PROTOCOL BEGINNING JUNE 1ST

During June 1-August 31, 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!

News ImageJuly 15, 2017  July 15th is National Pet Fire Safety Day!It’s National Pet Fire Safety Day! This nationwide awareness day educates pet owners about potential risks when pets are left home alone. Read the tips below provided by the American Kennel Club to learn more about how to keep your pets safe from house fires.

"National Pet Fire Safety Day" Tips to Keep Pets Safe from House Fires:

• Extinguish Open Flames - Pets are generally curious and will investigate cooking appliances, candles, or even a fire in your fireplace. Ensure your pet is not left unattended around an open flame and make sure to thoroughly extinguish any open flame before leaving your home.

• Pet Proof the Home - Take a walk around your home and look for areas where pets might start fires inadvertently, such as the stove knobs, loose wires and other potential hazards.

• Secure Young Pets - Especially with young puppies, keep them confined away from potential fire-starting hazards when you are away from home.

• Keep Pets Near Entrances – When leaving pets home alone, keep them in areas or rooms near entrances where firefighters can easily find them.

• Practicing Escape Routes with Pets – Keep collars and leashes at the ready in case you have to evacuate quickly with your pet or firefighters need to rescue your pet.

• Since Pets Left Alone Can’t Escape a Burning Home – Use monitored smoke detectors which are connected to a monitoring center, providing an added layer of protection beyond battery-operated smoke alarms.
