During the month of November, Orange County Board Supervisor Lisa Bartlett will sponsor pet adoptions at the Orange County Animal Care shelter.
Pet adoption fees will be waived, and costs for vaccinations, parasite control, neutering and microchipping will be covered, according to Bartlett’s office. Residents who adopt pets will also receive a bag of pet food while supplies last and a certificate for a free veterinary exam.
“As an animal lover and proud owner of my cat, Misha, whom I adopted from OC Animal Care, I strongly encourage anyone considering adding a furry friend to their family to take advantage of this incredible opportunity,” said Bartlett, who represents the county’s fifth district, including the towns of Dana Point, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.
“Join me at 9:30 a.m. on November 8 at the Board of Supervisors meeting when OC Animal Care will introduce some of the adorable animals available for adoption,” Bartlett added in a press release. “We need to empty our shelter and find these pets their forever home.”
The OC Animal Shelter is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays. Adoption hours are open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. While walk-in visits are welcome, OC Animal Care staff members recommend making an appointment.
Bartlett will also be sponsoring a ‘Fur-st’ Family Drive-Through Pet Pantry, with free food for dogs, cats, rabbits and birds while supplies last. Pet owners will also receive a free collapsible water bowl.
The pantry will run from 8-10 a.m. on November 12 at OC Animal Care, located at 1630 Victoria Road, Tustin.
