Orange County Animal Services is currently offering in-person adoptions with an appointment. Adoption appointments become available 25 hours prior to the scheduled arrival time. For example, an appointment for 10 a.m. on a Monday will become available at 9 a.m. on the Sunday prior. This modification to our appointment scheduling program ensures that those booking have an immediate interest in adopting. Those booking appointments are encouraged to review the list of current shelter pets, viewable here, as those are the pets that will most likely be available during the visit.
Adoption appointments are limited so the shelter is asking individuals to only make one appointment for visitation per week and to only make an appointment if seriously considering adoption.
To make an appointment, please utilize this link: https://v2.waitwhile.com/lists/orangecountyani/join
. Pets are available for adoption on a first come, first served basis.
Party size is limited to two people at this time to reduce the number of visitors so please plan accordingly.
Those visiting the shelter will be required to wear a mask and submit to temperature screening prior to entry. Anyone experiencing a fever, cough, difficult breathing, pneumonia, who has been exposed to someone confirmed to have COVID-19 or traveled outside of the country within the past month is required to postpone their visit to a later time.
