On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Orange County Animal Control officers recovered an approximately 18-month-old female Pug in the city of Fullerton.

OC Animal Care is committed to providing this precious Pug with every opportunity to live a long and happy life. OC Animal Care staff have named her "Mila", short for milagro, which means "miracle" in Spanish. She has a long road to recovery, but with the generosity of our community we have the oppo1tunity to ensure Mila heals from her injuries both physically and emotionally and is given the chance to find the loving home she deserves.

Please DONATE today to our Medical Pets fund through Noble Friends
Foundation for OC Animal Care at: One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Mila's care and any additional funds will be used for animals in need of medical rehabilitation in the future.

OC Animal Care thanks you for supporting our life saving efforts and we will be sending out updates on Mila's progress and all along her journey to recovery. ( View PDF )
