THE COUNTY The County of Orange is a regional service provider and planning agency whose core businesses include public safety, public health, environmental protection, regional planning, public assistance, social services and aviation. OC COMMUNITY RESOURCES (OCCR) OC Community Resources is a multi-faceted department comprised of OC Animal Care, OC Community Services, OC Housing & Community Development, OC Parks, and OC Public Libraries. OC ANIMAL CARE OC Animal Care promotes responsible pet ownership, health and safety of people and animals, and spay/neuter programs. OC Animal Care provides temporary shelter and medical care for "lost" owned or stray animals and opportunities for adoption of these animals. THE OPPORTUNITY This is an exciting time for OC Animal Care. With the support of the community and elected officials, construction for a new modern shelter in Tustin was completed in early 2018. The new shelter has indoor/outdoor temperature-controlled kennels, multiple exercise yards to facilitate shelter dog enrichment and the opportunity to manage multiple dog play groups. Cats susceptible to stress are afforded abundant natural light and ventilation in large cat cages, group cat rooms and even catios. These provisions have a positive impact on the physical and mental health of the shelter animals, which ultimately translates into increased adoptability and shorter length of stay. A community/training facility allows for engagement of staff, volunteers and members of the community. This new shelter provides a positive experience for animals and people alike. OC Animal Care's lifesaving shelter programs focus on humane education, intake diversion, and amplification of animal adoptability through enrichment and veterinary care.

While the majority of shelter animals are cats and dogs, we also receive over 3,000 rabbits, pocket pets, wildlife and farm animals. The Veterinarian is responsible for delivery of quality diagnostic, treatment and surgical services to the animals served by OC Animal Care in a cost-effective manner. Veterinarian is distinguished from the next higher level of Chief Veterinarian in that the latter coordinates and oversees the entire medical program and all aspects of animal health within the shelter.
