News ImageNovember 9, 2019  Waiving Cat Adoption Fees 11/8-11/10/2019!If you’ve been waiting for the right time to open your home, now is the time.

We currently have over 530 cats onsite who need homes.

This year we have already taken in over 8,500 cats – that’s almost 1,500 more cats and kittens than at this point in 2018! – and that number goes up every.single.day.

In the last week alone, we brought in 143 cats who needed our help. Now we’re asking you for help.

Starting today 11/8 through Sunday 11/10 we are waiving cat adoption fees ($14 microchip fee still applies). Please tell your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and anyone else who might be looking for a new family member.

With your support we can continue to help the cats in our community find the homes they’ve been dreaming of.

News ImageOctober 15, 2019  38 Kittens find Homes through Partnership with OC Public LibrariesOC Animal Care partnered with OC Public Libraries to help adorable kittens find loving homes. These “OC Tails and Tales” kitten adoption events encouraged the public to come to the library to adopt, read to the kittens and learn more about OC Animal Care. Irvine Heritage Library, Cypress Library and Tustin Library were among the venues that hosted these kitten adoptions, and it was a huge success! Over the span of 3 events, a total of 38 kittens were adopted into loving homes! Event goers also had the opportunity to learn more about the shelter’s foster program that saves hundreds of kittens each year! The shelter is grateful to have the opportunity to co-host these events and provide an additional resource for kittens who are waiting to be adopted.
OC Animal Care is excited to partner with OC Public Libraries for additional events in the future to help more feline friends find loving homes!
