Supervisor Doug Chaffee Sponsors OC Animal Care's Fur-Ever Family Event to Feature Low-Cost Adoptions
Santa Ana, CA (August 31, 2020) – Supervisor Doug Chaffee will sponsor the Fur-ever Family event hosted by OC Animal Care, which is aimed at assisting pet lovers in the community with a pet food giveaway and low-cost adoptions.
On September 12, OC Animal Care social media platforms will highlight adoptable pets. Families ready to adopt will have the opportunity to virtually sign up for one of one-hundred low-cost adoption vouchers sponsored by Supervisor Chaffee. Vouchers are first-come, first-serve and are limited to one per household for up to one hundred vouchers.
“We support companionship and positive mental health and what better way than to do that while also connecting homeless pets with new families.” said Supervisor Doug Chaffee, Fourth District. “We know pets lower anxiety and stress as well as promote healthy habits for people of all ages.”
The event will also feature the contactless Family Fur-st Drive Thru Pet Pantry where Supervisor Chaffee and staff will work alongside volunteers to distribute pet food to families in need from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. or while supplies last. This will be the fourth pet food pantry hosted by OC Animal Care in conjunction with community partners Animal Assistance League of Orange County, SoCal Animal Response Team, and The Shamrock Rescue Foundation. To date, the pet food pantry has given out over 7,000 pounds of food to help feed more than 550 pets in Orange County.
“We truly appreciate Supervisor Chaffee for supporting our mission and helping all the pet lovers in the community.” added OC Animal Care Interim Director Andi Bernard. “We hope families join us virtually as we feature pets onsite and in foster homes who are waiting for their perfect match.”
To sign up for a low-cost adoption voucher, adopters need to submit an online form on the OC Animal Care website starting at 8 a.m. on the day of the event. The first one hundred families will receive an email confirmation with a voucher and have 30 days to make an appointment and adopt their new pet.
