On Saturday April 6, OC Animal Care celebrated its one-year anniversary of moving into the new facility in Tustin.

Director Mike Kaviani kicked off the event at a small presentation before doors opened for the day. He spoke of the milestones achieved this last year, among those accomplishments, 2,369 lost pets returned to their owners and 5,621 pets who were adopted into loving families.

Early arrivals already in line for adoptions joined in on the fun and helped staff sing “Happy Birthday” to shelter dogs who also got to enjoy their own pup-cakes to celebrate the day. It was a fun family affair complete with food, small and large dog play groups, free pet tags, free* adoptions and free goodie bags for adopters. By the end of the day, 41 Cats, 39 Dogs, 9 rabbits, 2 birds and a snake found themselves in new homes!
