Adoptable Pets in California
Orange County Humane Society is a non-profit organization, dedicated to the care and protection of pets in our community. Our organization rescues and provides medical care, treatment, food, shelter and tender loving care these lost or unwanted pets need, until they are reunited with their family again or until a new friend is found to bring their new companion home.

OCHS participates in local events and programs in our community to reach out to the public about animal shelters and to educate them in animal care and the effects of "not knowing" about pet ownership and responsibility can have. OCHS also provides classes to the public. These classes and programs range from educating potential owners on the responsibility of pet ownership to pet care for new owners and even courses on animal safety for those who do not know what to do when encountering an animal. Our shelter has our own trainer on staff to assess our pets and provide our new adopters with classes to train their new pet.

OCHS also works hand in hand with animal control, and helps is enforcing licensing and other animal ordinances. Our shelter provides each of their pets with shelter and care until their owner is found or their cases are closed. If no owner comes to redeem their pet, then we find them a new home that will better provide care for our pets. We also reach out to other shelter, not just in Orange County, but also in surrounding Counties. Due to the high numbers of stray and unwanted pets, many shelters become overwhelmed with animals, we try to relieve them of their unfortunate decision to euthanize, by providing their animals with homes, when we have the space to accommodate for them. We hope by rescuing animals from other shelters, we will allow them more time, to find their perfect match, and for the community to find the life-long friend.

OCHS also serves our community by providing another place for owners to surrender an animal. The reasons for giving up an animal can vary, but without local shelters and humane rescues, those animals would be left abandoned to care for themselves.

OC Humane Societys main purpose, to find each of our pets the perfect home so that they can live the rest of their lives as every pet should, with the love and care of a friend. Each year, thousands of animals pass through our doors: lost pets, injured animals, rescued animals, and surrendered animals. Each of these animals are found new homes, we do not put time limits or deadlines for their stay. We provide care and shelter to each of our animals, who are healthy, adoptable and not aggressive, until a new one is found. Our shelter has found over 100,000s of homes for our pets over the years and hope to continue to do so. Thanks to the support of many individuals, volunteers, local businesses, contracts and fees, OCHS is able to make a huge difference in the lives of those who cannot speak for themselves, the abandoned pets of our community.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
