This December we're offering the "Twelve Strays of Christmas" adoption promotion! We'll be highlighting our 12 favorite shelter pets on social media, hoping they can land their forever homes right in time for the holidays. Adoption fees will be reduced to $10 not just for our favorites, but for all shelter pets and for the entirety of the month. Seize this opportunity to ring in the new year with a new furry friend by your side!
To schedule an appointment, please visit the portal here: https://v2.waitwhile.com/lists/orangecountyani/join. As spots are limited, we ask that only those seriously interested in adoption schedule appointments.
As a small token of appreciation, Orange County Animal Services hopes to bring joy to local heroes by waiving the fees. First Responders are defined as police officers (federal, state or local), Sheriff’s Deputies, State Troopers, Career Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), paramedics and 911 dispatchers. Those seeking to qualify for this promotion will need to present proof of occupation.
As a thank you to those who have served, veterans can adopt for free. Please bring your Military ID or a copy of your DD Form 214 with honorable discharge.
Two are better than one! Adopters are encouraged to adopt two felines for the price of one, as cats tend to do well in pairs.
Looking for a mellow companion who is likely already trained? All animals seven years and older are free to adopt.
Orange County Animal Services is a progressive animal-welfare focused organization that enforces the Orange County Code to protect both citizens and animals. We provide service throughout Orange County, including all municipalities.
