The Animal Services Department is responsible for Animal Control and Animal Sheltering activities within Orange County.  

The Animal Services Center will be closed Monday, July 4 for Independence Day.  Our after-hours animal drop will be open and checked daily.  For animal emergencies, please call 9-1-1 to be connected to our on-call Animal Control Officer.

Its mission is to meet the needs of residents by working with volunteers and other partners to deliver cost-effective and integrated sheltering and animal control services that ensure the health, safety and well being of humans, pets and the community as a whole.  Addressing the problem of pet overpopulation with a proactive and positive approach is an integral ingredient of the department’s mission.
