Pet Adoptions and Foster Options

Request email notification when page changes Email me page updates

The Orange County Animal Shelter has many wonderful pets for adoption and some that are available for one of our foster programs.

Pet visitations end 30 minutes prior to closing daily.

Some animals can be taken home the same day they are adopted, but those adoptions must occur before 4:30 pm and are dependent upon several factors. Please call ahead if you are interested in taking a pet home on the same day you adopt to find out if that pet is able to go home right away.

Transferring Pets to Rescue Placement Partners

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!
