News ImageNovember 27, 2019  Thanksgiving Pet Safety TipsIt's almost time for Thanksgiving! Don't forget about your four-legged family members while you celebrate with your two-legged ones! Here's a few Thanksgiving safety tips to keep your pets healthy and happy during the holiday.

FOOD:
Many Thanksgiving feast staples are toxic to pets. Turkey skin, onions, raisins, grapes, chocolate, artificial sweetener (xylitol), yeast dough, and particularly fatty foods are toxic to dogs and cats, and can cause potentially fatal health conditions. Keep furry friends away from the table!

PARTIES AND GUESTS:
If you know your pet gets anxious or over-excited around guests, consider keeping them in a separate room with food, water, and their favorite toy for the duration of the party. Even if your pet is comfortable with guests, make sure you watch the exits as doors open and close. Your furry friend might try to bolt while the front door is open as you greet your guests! Please be sure all of your microchip and licensing information is up-to-date!

TRAVEL:
If your holiday plans involve traveling elsewhere for multiple days, make sure you'v e made proper accommodations for your pet. Consider boarding them at a pet hotel/boarding house, or hiring a trusted friend to feed and spend time with your pet everyday while you're gone. ( View PDF )

News ImageOctober 15, 2019  38 Kittens find Homes through Partnership with OC Public LibrariesOC Animal Care partnered with OC Public Libraries to help adorable kittens find loving homes. These “OC Tails and Tales” kitten adoption events encouraged the public to come to the library to adopt, read to the kittens and learn more about OC Animal Care. Irvine Heritage Library, Cypress Library and Tustin Library were among the venues that hosted these kitten adoptions, and it was a huge success! Over the span of 3 events, a total of 38 kittens were adopted into loving homes! Event goers also had the opportunity to learn more about the shelter’s foster program that saves hundreds of kittens each year! The shelter is grateful to have the opportunity to co-host these events and provide an additional resource for kittens who are waiting to be adopted.
OC Animal Care is excited to partner with OC Public Libraries for additional events in the future to help more feline friends find loving homes!
