Go to the Service Window and an Office Specialist will assist you with the adoption.
Pay the applicable fees. The typical costs associated with the adoption of a pet from the Animal Care Center are found on our shelter and licensing pages. These costs include applicable adoption, spay/neutering, microchipping, immunization and licensing. For those animals requiring sterilization, surgery will be scheduled on the next available date.
Return to the Animal Care Center when notified that your animal is ready for pick-up.
Exotic Pet Adoption
OC Animal Care frequently receives animals other than dogs, cats and rabbits that become available for adoption. These exotic animals, such as non-venomous reptiles and exotic birds, are held for a minimum of seven (7) days to allow owner redemptions.
OC Animal Care holds a drawing every Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 PM for those exotic animals that have become available for adoption. If you would like to be included in the drawing, you must arrive at the Care Center by 5:00 PM to place your name in the drawing. You must be present at the drawing to be eligible for the adoption. Should your name be drawn for the animal that you are interested in, you will be required to pay all fees at the time of adoption. Please bring your own cage or kennel for larger exotic animals.
To view all exotic animals, please visit the Search Adoptable Pets page and see “Other". Please contact 714-935-6848 for information as to which exotics will participate in the current drawing for adoption.
