News ImageOctober 31, 2014  OC Animal Care Officer Rescues Tiny Kitten on Freeway!OC Animal Care receives many calls each day about stray pets running loose in our communities. These calls are a priority for our officers as the safety of pets is a top concern. We recencly received a call of a tiny kitten laying on a divider on one of our busy freeways. An Animal Control Officer responded and was able to safely capture her before she was seriously injured. This lucky kitten was then taken to the shelter and examined by the veterinarian. Thankfully, the only injuries she suffered were a minor abrasion to her lip and worn paw pads. She was given a bath, her injuries were treated and she was placed on a comfortable bed in the shelter's kitten nursery. She has not been placed into a temporary foster home unitl she is old enough for adoption. We will keep you posted when she returns for adoption.

Thank you to our dedicated Animal Control Officers, shelter staff and foster homes for everything that you do each day to save the pets in need of help in our community. Your hard work is appreciated!

News ImageOctober 31, 2014  Coyote Information for Orange County ResidentsMany residents of Orange County have expressed concerns about coyote sightings and the consequences of predator animals within the urban environment. Several residents have lost their pets to these skilled hunters because they were not aware of recent coyote activity in the area.

Coyotes are found in all areas of Orange County. Contrary to popular belief, these animals do not require open space or "wild areas" to survive. In fact, most coyotes within the urban setting are the offspring of generations of coyotes who lived and flourished in the urban areas of Orange County. Many steps can be taken to protect you, your pets and your property from nuisance animals like coyotes. Click the link for more information. ( View PDF )
