Home for the Holidays!
Orange County Animal Shelter is looking for homes for cats.  We have a large number of cats in our shelter that have been here for a while and would love to be in a loving home.  All cats have been spayed or neutered, are vaccinated, dewormed and tested negative for FELV / FIV.  We are having a $25 special on any of these kitties.  Please come by and find your new best friend to be with you over the holidays.

Our Mission

The Orange County Animal Shelter is responsible for providing humane care to unwanted, lost, or abandoned animals. Our mission:

  • Protect the animals entrusted to our care
  • Find permanent homes for lost or abandoned pets
  • Promote responsible pet ownership
  • Improve quality of life in Orange County

Support Agencies
The Orange County Humane Society assists by providing volunteers for adoption events and by holding fundraisers to support the Shelter’s Emergency Veterinary Fund, spay/neuter program, microchip program, and related endeavors to benefit the animals.

Animal Control, which collects stray, sick, or aggressive animals and conducts animal welfare investigations, is a separate function of the Sheriff’s Office.  If you have an animal emergency or stray animal, please contact Animal Control at (540) 672-1200.

The Orange County Animal Shelter sponsors low-cost vaccination clinics every spring and fall.  Rabies and distemper shots are available for both cats and dogs.  These clinics are open to everyone, regardless of county of residence.  Please ensure that dogs are safely secured on leash and cats are either harnessed or in an appropriate carrier.
