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

The Animal Services Center will be closed Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day.  For animal emergencies, including bites to people and potential rabies exposures, please call 9-1-1 to be connected to the 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.
