News ImageJuly 10, 2015  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 ImageJuly 11, 2015  A Happy Ending for OliviaOur officer's encounter a variety of situations in the field. Here is one of their Happily Ever Afters

Olivia is a Blue Fronted Amazon. She was impounded by OC Animal Care after Orange Police Department served a Search Warrant at the former owner’s home. The owner was unable to care for Olivia. Olivia had obviously been neglected for a long period of time, the living conditions were deplorable.

It’s OC Animal Care’s policy that, because of the large number of interested parties, the adoption of all exotic animals is raffled out. On the day of the adoption, the line of families that were interested in taking Olivia home was unusually long. Lucky for both, an OC Animal Care Animal Control Officer won. Her green feathers were a little faded at time of impound, she gained a lot of weight and her feathers started getting more color as soon as she was put on a high-protein organic diet. Olivia has her own 4x2x6 feet condo cage, and she’s free to roam around her home during the day. Olivia has been living happily with her new family since 2011.

News ImageJuly 1, 2015  Congratulations to Annette Van Rijsbergen our June Volunteer of the Month!Annette is one of our newest volunteers but has thrown herself whole heartedly into our programs. In just her first month since being trained she has already donated 63 hours of her time. Annette has taken the initiative to participate in a great deal of special projects including a massive shelter gardening and beautification with a team of volunteers. Annette excels as a dog socializer and can always be seen giving a bit of extra comfort to our adoptable pets, even branching out to train in the kitten nursery and wherever she is needed most. Annette is a wonderful example of the fantastic volunteers we have here at OC Animal Care.
