News ImageMay 24, 2016  Bubba On His Way To Recovery!

We have received many inquiries about Bubba, the dog impounded during an arrest in Tustin in March. We wanted to provide everyone an update on his case. This is an open investigation so we cannot release exact or identifying details but we can confirm that Bubba was impounded from a person (arrested for unrelated charges) in March. It was alleged that Bubba had been intentionally exposed to drugs by another person or persons. OC Animal Care conducted an investigation into the matter and has submitted the findings to the District Attorney for case consideration. Bubba has been treated by OC Animal Care and is recovering well. He is not available for adoption yet but we will keep everyone posted when he is being made available.

Staff has been playing with and exercising Bubba daily. Check out his video at https://youtu.be/DBBSOj4wLmk and https://youtu.be/PZ1ojdMkJh8 to see how well he is doing.


News ImageMay 24, 2016  OC Board of Supervisors Honors Emmy's HopeToday Orange County Supervisors recognized Emmy and the charitable work she has done for Orange County Animal shelters. Through Emmy’s Hope, Emmy actively networks animals, donates supplies on shelters wish lists, helps special needs dogs and promote pet adoption events. Emmy’s family has worked with OC Animal Care in the past and last year donated $10,000 to OC Animal Care’s pets. Emmy will collect donations for our shelter, hand deliver them and spend time visiting the animals. Although she is only 11 years old she knows that she can make a difference in these animals’ lives by spreading awareness and helping them find their furever home. In Emmy’s speech to the Board of Supervisors she spoke about her charity, Emmy’s Hope and how we all can help animals in need. She closed her speech by referencing the Starfish Story reminding us that although there are so many that need help, we all can make a difference by helping one at a time. Everyone at OC Animal Care would like to thank Emmy for her passion and dedication to the homeless pets of Orange County.To learn more about Emmy's Hope please visit http://www.emmyshope.com/about-emmy.
