News ImageJune 1, 2017  SUMMER TRAPPED CAT PROTOCOL BEGINNING JUNE 1ST

During June 1-August 31, OC Animal Care will not pick up trapped cats except when the cat is injured, sick, has been involved in a bite or there are other special circumstances.

The intent of the summer protocol is to limit the number of feral cats sitting in traps during the hot summer months. We encourage citizens to focus trapping efforts during the cooler months of the year. Thank you OC citizens for your cooperation!

News ImageJune 22, 2017  Happily Ever After Pet Fair 2017 was Magical!OC Animal Care’s Happily Ever After Pet Fair 2017 was an event to remember! 95 of our shelter pets (53 cats, 35 dogs, 4 exotic and 3 rabbits) found their fur-ever homes this past Saturday. Attendees of our annual pet fair took a look around at booths hosted by animal rescue groups, pet and other vendors within the community. In our play area we had amazing pet related demonstrations throughout the day! Children took a break and participated in a Katy Cares about Responsible Pet Ownership Storytime, people learned that Chickens make great pets too, adoptable dogs strutted their stuff during a parade and Twinkie the mini horse and friends wooed everyone with their tricks taught through positive reinforcement! Classic Taco and Mustache Mikes Italian Ice also provided food and an icy treat on that hit the spot on that summer day. Thank you to staff and volunteers who helped make this an unforgettable event! We’d also like to thank everyone within the community who stopped by and chose to adopt a shelter pet!

News ImageJune 10, 2017  Tips for Camping with your Dog!Summer's here! Follow these tips to guarantee that when you and your dog go on adventures you'll be a bunch of happy campers!

BEFORE YOU LEAVE
-Check to see if the camping area allows dogs, and familiarize yourself with the rules for pets at the site. Plan activities you and your dog can do together. Your dog should not be unattended or left in a tent.

-Before you head off on your outside adventure with your furry friend check with your Vet! Is your dog’s vaccinations all updated? Ask your vet whether your dog should be vaccinated against Lyme disease, a tick-borne disease. Discuss appropriate flea and tick control.

-Make sure your dog has a collar with current contact information. Microchipping your dog is her/his best chance at being returned to you if they get lost.

-Training is a must! There are lots of dangers and distractions when you are camping. Please make sure your dog is responsive to your commands. Specifically Stay, Come and Leave it.

WHAT TO PACK
-Bring water for your dog to drink if a water supply is not available at the campsite. Do not allow your dog to drink out of standing bodies of water.

-Take a copy of your dog’s health records and vaccination reports.

-Other items to include are bedding, toys, a leash and collar, a carrier or other means to confine your dog when necessary, bags to pick up your dog’s waste, and a first aid kit.
