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. In 2018, the Orange County Board of Supervisors approved a 5-year Strategic Plan with the following Strategic Priority areas: Animal Care, Enrichment and Placement Stakeholder Engagement and Marketing Culture and Organizational Development Fiscal Stewardship and Sustainability New Shelter Onboarding The Veterinarian will have the opportunity to leverage strong medical and surgical skills to make a difference within a busy environment driven by our Strategic Plan. With 2019 save rates of 96.52% for dogs and 81.02% for cats, there is no time limit for an animal in our care, and our Strategic Plan drives us to maintain our high canine save rate while increasing our feline save rate. Our high-quality veterinary clinic provides PCV/TP, Blood Glucose, digital radiology, oxygen cages, IV fluid pumps, infectious disease isolation and separation of species that enter the shelter. Multiple surgery rooms afford the ability to more swiftly provide spay/neuter services so as not to prolong animal stays. This position plays a critical role in balancing resources while maximizing the number of lives saved through quality veterinary care.
