The Animal Services Department is responsible for Animal Control and Animal Sheltering activities within Orange County.
Animal Services will be closed Tuesday, July 4th for Independence Day. For animal-related emergencies, including animal bites to people and potential rabies exposures, please dial 9-1-1 to be connected to our 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.
