ORANGE COUNTY, NC (May 16, 2018)— Orange County Animal Services will be hosting its annual Open House on Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 12 – 4 p.m. 

The event will feature tours of the facility, various activities for families and children, free food, and more. CLAWS, Inc. will be on site to feature select birds of prey.
