Animal Care Services Holds Open House
(SANTA ANA) - The County’s Animal Care Services will hold an open house from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., April 9 at its facility located at 561 The City Drive South, Orange. The event will highlight the new, Sunday opening at the facility. The public can now visit Animal Care Services seven days a week (except holidays) from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. except Wednesday’s extended hours when the closing time is 7 p.m. New features at the center include the new Dog Walk for exercising dogs and the new Cat Pavilion with 72 individual cages.

During the open house, volunteers and staff will conduct tours of the center including the Dog Walk and Cat Pavilion. Other activities will include presentations on dog training techniques, a pet first-aid demonstration and wildlife exhibit. The highlight will be cats, kittens, dogs and puppies that are ready for adoption. Refreshments will be sold by Explorer Post 538. The Animal Assistance League will sponsor an opportunity drawing.

"We encourage people of all ages to join us for this informal community gathering," said Russ Patton, Interim Director of the Animal Care Center. "This open house gives us an opportunity to welcome the community and to remind them that we are open seven days a week to place animals for adoption and to help pet owners retrieve lost pets."
