News ImageMarch 11, 2015  103 Bunnies Adopted during Adopt a Shelter Rabbit MonthDuring the month of February, OC Animal Care celebrated Adopt a Shelter Rabbit Month and 103 rabbits found their furever homes! All rabbits adopted in February received a FREE spay/neuter and Microchip. Our dedicated bunny volunteers did their best to speak with every adopter so they understood the responsibility of owning a rabbit as well as giving them helpful and fun tips about rabbits. Around mid-February OC Animal Care took in 61 rabbits in one day and our communities, volunteers and rabbit rescue organizations response was remarkable. Our rescue groups adopted about a quarter of the 103 bunnies and individuals and families from our community adopted the rest. OC Animal Care volunteers and staff turned what could have been a negative situation into a positive one and were able to find homes for these bunnies. Thank you to all who came out in support of Adopt a Shelter Rabbit Month!

News ImageFebruary 28, 2015  OC Animal Care Celebrates Spay Day USALast Saturday, OC Animal Care celebrated Spay Day USA and 39 of our pets (11 cats, 26 dogs and 2 rabbits) found their new forever homes. Adopters that day received free spay/neuter for their new pets and some pet friendly giveaways! Staff and volunteers had a great time watching these pets find their perfect match while recognizing the importance of spay/neutering.
Although happy for our pets that found homes, we all recognize that there are still many homeless pets in our communities and a problem with pet overpopulation due to the lack of spay/neutering. The ASPCA estimates that there are 70 million stray cats in the United States. The average number of liters a fertile cat produces is one to two a year averaging 4-6 kittens per litter. According to findings by the ASPCA, only 10% of the animals received by shelters have been spayed / neutered. OC Animal Care is dedicated to educating our communities and promoting positive health care for animals.
