To expand reach and encourage shelter adoptions, OC Animal Care launched Pooches on the Patio and added it to the shelter’s roster of regular programs to help pets into their forever homes. Across the country, shelters are seeing an overwhelming increase in animal numbers, including in Orange County. OC Animal Care is currently operating at overcapacity, which has created a critical situation for the animals that cannot be resolved without the help of the community.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, OC Animal Care will continue to waive adoption fees for all animals until October 31, 2022. Those who were hesitant to adopt a pet are now in a great position to fall in love with their new best friend! Each adopted animal comes with a microchip, vaccines, neutering or neutering and pest control. Waived adoption fees do not include license fees or puppies six months or younger. With over 400 adoption visits available per week, potential adopters can schedule an adoption appointment today by calling (714) 935-6848. Walk-ins are welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis, as staff permit. To see the animals available at OC Animal Care, visit ocpetinfo.com.
