Success Stories

News ImageBarneyWe adopted Fox, a white and tan, Fox Terr. Mix at the Pet Expo in April from OC Animal Care. We changed his name to Barney. He loves his new brothers Jake/Lab and Boots/Terr. Mix they were both also rescues, Barney is so lovable he has fit right in. Barney is a fast learner. He knows how to use the Pet Door to go out into the backyard to go potty. He knows sit, stay and come commands. He can walk on a leash. Barney knows not to run out the front door, side gate and garage door. He sleeps in his crate all night with no crying, he is fully house trained.
We took him to his Vet for a checkup and the rest of his shots and he is also now licensed. I have begun walking Barney along with Boots every morning; he enjoys playing with Boots until they both crash for a long nap. We love Barney! He now has a good home and my grandkids love coming over and playing with him too. Thank you for giving us our new puppy!


News ImageBelleThis is Belle. On September 9, 2014, Belle was found roaming the Honda Center’s parking lot with 4 other siblings. They were picked up and brought to OC Animal Care by a Good Samaritan. Unlike the rest of her liter mates, Belle was not eligible for adoption due to a dental cyst that was caused by an unerupted tooth.
Thanks to funds from OC Animal Care’s Medical Pets Programs and the help of Dr. Murt from VCA All Care Animal Referral Center, Belle was able to receive the x-ray and CT exams needed and be seen by a dental specialist for an accurate diagnose. Luckily, it was not a tumor, but only a minor bone infection and all she needed were antibiotics. Belle went home with an Animal Control Officer and was on antibiotics for 30 days. Improvement was seen within the first week and by the end of the 30 days the abscess was completely gone.
Belle was adopted on March 28, 2015 and is now part of a family who loves and spoils her!


News ImageJackieTwo days before Christmas 2014 I was looking online for a new companion. My dog of 14 years had passed away of old age two weeks prior. My family and I were looking for a new friend to add to our family and I came across Jackie. We fell in love with her sweet little face and big ears instantly. We knew once we visited with her, she was the perfect fit! We adopted Jackie on Christmas Eve! The staff and gifts they sent home with Jackie were amazing. Now Jackie has three new sweaters, a huge backyard to run around in, and 3 new cat friends she is friendly with. Her favorite snack is Beggin’ Bacon treats, she enjoys going on car rides and walks in the park. She has a loving family and gives unconditional love back to us. She has been a puuurfect addition to our home and has left her little paw-prints on our hearts! Thank you OC Animal Care for Jackie (also called Jacks or Jackie girl). Your wonderful services, shots, microchip, and easy adoption process has given our lovely Jackie her forever home!

News ImageKingdomHello OC Animal Care,
We wanted to write to THANK YOU!! for taking our dog Kingdom, who we adopted on November 1, 2014. If it was not for OC Animal Care, we would not ever have the chance to meet the newest and only boy of our family!! I put off having a pet for several years do to not having a place that would allow pets. Besides that reason, financially I was unprepared for a pet, and unfortuantly I had to put my 11 year olds biggest wish go having a dog! Now, life has picked up for my family! We were able to find an affordable place that is pet friendly and I was able to fulfill my daughters wish! Ever since we brought Kingdom home, our family changed completely! He has brought extra joy and happiness to each one of us! He is the most loving dog, playful pal, and little protector, and only boy in the family! Since my daughter is an only child she has found a bond and companionship with Kingdom, that makes me and my partner more than happy!!! Thank you again!! WE LOVE KINGDOM!!
