ORANGE – Looking for a family pet? The Orange County Animal shelter, based off of an emergency need to place animals, is offering no-cost adoptions beginning on Thursday, November 3, 2016, until the animal population at the shelter is significantly reduced. On October 4, 2016, the Orange County Animal care was forced to impound 200 rabbits and continuously receives stray cats, dogs, and other animals.
Prices were reduced as a result of the overcrowding, which helped place some of the rabbits, but 127 rabbits remain without a home. “We have an obligation to provide temporary shelter to stray homeless animals,” said Orange County Animal Care Director, Dr. Jennifer Hawkins. “At this time, we are not accepting dogs surrendered to the shelter as we are experiencing high shelter volume. We are counting on community members to adopt a shelter pet. Staff and volunteers from all departments are chipping in to help provide care to the animals. However, what these animals truly need is a loving home.”
The fee waiver covers adoption fees, microchip, spay/neuter, vaccination, and if applicable, veterinary services. Dog licensing fee of $27 is not included in the fee waiver. The shelter is located at 561 The City Drive S in the City of Orange.
