About Us

People love pets. They're cute, cuddly and fun! But having a pet involves much more than just love. There's a huge commitment involved; pets need food and water, medical care and lots of attention. Unfortunately, with all of these responsibilities, many people find that they are in over their heads. The result is a large number of unwanted pets. That's where OC Animal Care comes in. We take in more than 30,000 dogs, cats, bunnies, and other pets in Orange County each year! In addition to the daily feed, shelter and medical care provided to each pet at our shelter, OC Animal Care strives to be proactive in placing pets by offering monthly adoption events, working with hundreds of non-profit rescue groups and encouraging our community members to become volunteers and foster caretakers.

OC Animal Care promotes: responsible pet ownership; health and safety of people and animals and spay/neuter programs. OC Animal Care provides temporary shelter and medical care for "lost" owned or stray animals and opportunities for adoption of these animals. OC Animal Care houses and provides medical care for impounded dogs, cats and exotic animals.

The Care Center provides pet licensing and patrol services to 17 contract cities and all the unincorporated areas of the County.
