News ImageSeptember 3, 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 )
News ImageSeptember 4, 2014  Thank you Orange County Libraries and Communities!This past Summer OC Animal Care was excited to partner with various Orange County Libraries and their Paws to Read Summer programs. This was a great opportunity to not only encourage the love of reading in our communities but to also teach an important message about Responsible Pet Ownership. OC Animal Care volunteers attended several libraries and were able to share books and activities that help our youth understand the importance of Responsible Pet Ownership and adopting. In addition, to promoting their Paws to Read program, our libraries also ran a Paws to Give and Pet Drive for OC Animal Care. We are so grateful for the generosity and response from our community during these donation drives. These donations will greatly benefit our animals and help provide comfort to them during what we hope is a brief stay at our shelter. Thank you for supporting OC Animal Care!
