In response to COVID-19, please check out our facility updates, bit.ly/OCASCOVID-19.
For the month of August adoption fees are reduced to $10 for both dogs and cats as we encourage everyone to consider adopting a “quarantine buddy.”
Adoptions available at the shelter via appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please visit the portal here: https://v2.waitwhile.com/lists/orangecountyani/join. As spots are limited, we ask that only those seriously interested in adoption schedule appointments.
First responders are welcomed to adopt at no cost. As a small token of appreciation, Orange County Animal Services hopes to bring joy to local heroes by waiving the fees.
As a thank you to those who have served, veterans can adopt for free. Please bring your Military ID or a copy of your DD Form 214 with honorable discharge.
Two are better than one! Adopters are encouraged to adopt two felines for the price of one, as cats tend to do well in pairs.
Looking for a mellow companion who is likely already trained? All animals seven years and older are free to adopt.
Orange County Animal Services is a progressive animal-welfare focused organization that enforces the Orange County Code to protect both citizens and animals. We provide service throughout Orange County, including all municipalities.
