Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) is a progressive animal-welfare focused organization that enforces the Orange County Code to protect both citizens and animals. OCAS is the only open admission shelter in Orange County, which means that it does not turn away any animal and accepts all animals, regardless of their temperament or health. The health and well-being of the animals in the care of OCAS is of the utmost importance to Orange County and its community. Most animals are ideal candidates for adoption, yet some come to the shelter suffering from long-term and profound health problems, as a result of being homeless, stray or abused. On average, the shelter receives approximately 50 animals each day, but these numbers can double during peak summer months.
OCAS has hundreds of adoptable pets at any given time. The shelter operates on a first come, first served basis in order to give each person an equal opportunity. Adoption visitation is currently available with an appointment. Please visit http://bit.ly/OCASCOVID-19 for additional information and to make an appointment. Adopters must arrive prepared with a valid photo identification and a form of payment in either cash, credit/debit card or check. Animal Services welcomes adopters from out of county and state, but does not transport animals. The interested adopter is required to visit the shelter in person.
