The Animal Services Department is responsible for Animal Control and Animal Sheltering activities within Orange County.  

Animal Services will be closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 16.  Our after-hours animal drop will be open and checked daily.  For animal-related emergencies, please call 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.
