OC Animal Care Accepts $100,000 Grant for Neonatal Kitten Care
On Saturday, OC Animal Care accepted a $100,000 “Save Them All” kitten grant from Best Friends Animal Society. The grant money will contribute to expanding OC Animal Care’s foster caretaker program and its program for neonatal, bottle-fed kittens.

The funds will be put towards spay and neuter services, all medical care, vaccinations, microchip and antibiotics for neonatal kittens. OC Animal Care’s goal will always be to find permanent, loving homes for all animals at the OC Animal Care shelter, and this grant takes us one step closer to that goal.

Chairman Andrew Do also spoke at the presentation ceremony, stressing the importance of this grant in helping kittens find forever homes and the ever-increasing need for members of the community to volunteer to foster animals. He also welcomed the new OC Animal Care Director Mike Kaviani to the County of Orange. With a new director and fresh grant money to support its kitten fostering efforts, OC Animal Care is making excellent use of its new facility and remains committed to providing the best possible care.
