OC Animal Care to be closed March 16 through March 31, 2020

In light of the recent guidelines issued by the Governor of the state of California and to protect the health and wellness of staff and customers, OC Animal Care is temporarily closing the animal shelter to the public effective immediately. This action will limit the number of people in the animal shelter and help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

At this time, adoptions and redemptions will continue by appointment only. Additionally, all events and programming at the shelter have been canceled through the end of March. To make an appointment to adopt or redeem an animal, please refer to OC Animal Care’s website at www.ocpetinfo.com for more information.
