April 16, 2015  Egyptian Goose with Arrow Lodged in NeckWe are sorry to report that the Egyptian Goose with the arrow lodged in its neck succumbed to its injuries after surgery yesterday evening. After being caught by an employee near the Anaheim Hills Car Wash yesterday morning, the goose was transported by OC Animal Care Animal Control Officers directly to a local wildlife veterinary specialist in South Orange County. After an assessment, the veterinarian scheduled the goose for surgery yesterday afternoon. Surgery was performed and the goose seemed to be recovering well, however he suddenly crashed and was unable to be revived. The exact cause of death is unknown at this time. OC Animal Care suspects that the injury caused to this goose was intentional. If anyone has information regarding the perpetrator of the injury or the incident that caused the injury, they are encouraged to call 714-935-6848 and make a report. Callers may remain anonymous.

News ImageMarch 11, 2015  103 Bunnies Adopted during Adopt a Shelter Rabbit MonthDuring the month of February, OC Animal Care celebrated Adopt a Shelter Rabbit Month and 103 rabbits found their furever homes! All rabbits adopted in February received a FREE spay/neuter and Microchip. Our dedicated bunny volunteers did their best to speak with every adopter so they understood the responsibility of owning a rabbit as well as giving them helpful and fun tips about rabbits. Around mid-February OC Animal Care took in 61 rabbits in one day and our communities, volunteers and rabbit rescue organizations response was remarkable. Our rescue groups adopted about a quarter of the 103 bunnies and individuals and families from our community adopted the rest. OC Animal Care volunteers and staff turned what could have been a negative situation into a positive one and were able to find homes for these bunnies. Thank you to all who came out in support of Adopt a Shelter Rabbit Month!
