The new, modern OC Animal Care shelter replaces the aging OC Animal Care shelter in Orange built in the 1940s. The new facility is located on an approximately 10-acre site. It includes a two-story, approximately 30,000-square-foot main building, six stand-alone kennel buildings, multiple dog play yards, a “catio” (secured outdoor play area for cats), a barnyard and a “rabbitat” (rabbit housing area). Features of the new facility include indoor/outdoor temperature-controlled areas for the animals; abundant use of natural light, superior ventilation and acoustical control; and design elements that translate into less stress for animals in the shelter. The new OC Animal Care shelter will serve 14 contract cities and unincorporated County areas.
Construction of the new shelter was approved by the Board of Supervisors on April 12, 2016. OC Public Works and the Board-approved contractor Snyder Langston began construction in August 2016. Construction of the new facility cost approximately $34.5 million.
A family-friendly grand opening is scheduled for March 24, when members of the public will be invited to explore the new shelter campus, participate in fun activities and become familiar with the new OC Animal Care facility.
