This Month at Animal Services

Did you know August is National Dog Month? We’re making it an August to remember by rebranding the month to Dogust! Orange County Animal Services experiences its highest shelter intakes during the warmest months of the year, making this an optimal time to adopt, with many varieties of pets to choose from. We’re inviting you to take the plunge and celebrate Dogust by adopting a canine friend!

Adoption fees for both dogs and cats will be reduced to just $10 for our “ready to go” pets. These are pets that have already been spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Animals that are not eligible for the promotion will be available at the standard adoption fees of $55 for dogs and $40 for cats. No appointments required to visit the shelter for adoption services!

Sunday, August 8 is International Cat Day as well so we’re celebrating with an adopt-a-thon and doubling our adoption hours. We’ll be open from 12 through 8 p.m. On this one day, all adoption fees for both dogs and cats will be reduced to just $10. Find out more about the event on our Facebook page.
