Transferring Pets to Rescue Placement Partners

TheordoreIzzy

Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) recognizes and values the hard work and dedication of area rescue organizations, and we enjoy working with many groups in order to save lives and work together to place adoptable, healthy animals into loving, permanent homes.

OCAS offers many cost saving benefits to rescues, including vaccines and some medical services, at no cost!  In addition, we offer sterilization and microchipping services for very low fees for cats and dogs transferred to rescue groups.

We invite your organization to join us in our efforts to improve the lives of companion animals in Orange County!

For information about becoming a Placement Partner and transferring animals to a nonprofit rescue organization, visit our Placement Partner resource page.
