Dog Shelters in Orange County
OCHS MISSION STATEMENT
The Orange County Humane Society strives to provide temporary safe refuge for the sick, injured, lost, neglected, abused and unwanted animals. Our shelter's goal is to find a permanent, loving home for all of our pets and to provide rehabilitation whenever possible.
We believe that we are the final hope for these animals and it is our obligation to strive to do the best we can to rescue them from their unfortunate situation
The Orange County Humane Society (OCHS) is dedicated to the protection of abused, unwanted, neglected and under-appreciated animals. We make every effort to nourish the starved, nurse the sick, accept the unwanted, heal the wounded and endear the abandoned. We are dedicated to the relief of animal suffering, the promotion of animal welfare and the education of the local community. Our employees, along with a group of enthusiastic volunteers, staff the OCHS; and have made it an integral part of the local community. Numerous animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and reptiles continue to enjoy the services of the OCHS and it is our goal to continue this mission for as long as stray and sick animals still roam our streets. What started out in 1949 as a simple effort to tend to less fortunate animals in Orange County, over the years, has turned into a safe haven for tens of thousands of helpless pets. Now called the Orange County Humane Society (OCHS), the center is undergoing another metamorphosis in hopes of helping even more unwanted or neglected animals.
