What's Happening
The Financial Literacy Forum in Anaheim
Our first District 4 Financial Literacy Forum in partnership with California State University, Fullerton was a huge success!
This session was held at Sycamore Junior High School, and many participants joined us from the surrounding area. They learned about the basics of financial literacy, including savings, investing and borrowing.
We thank Sycamore Junior High School for being our host.

Be a Shelter's Dog Lucky Charm at OC Animal Care Adoption Promotion

Throughout March 2023, every day is a lucky day because adoption fees are waived for dogs 25 pounds and over at OC Animal Care. 

The adoption promotion is available to residents of any city. With over 400 adoption visits available per week, potential adopters can pre-schedule a visit by calling (714) 935-6848 or drop by for a walk-in visit. Walk-ins are welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis as staffing allows.

The waived fees include microchipping, vaccinations, spaying or neutering, and an anti-parasite treatment. Waived adoption fees do not include licensing fees or puppies six months of age or younger.

Pet of the Week

Jacob is an adorable German Shepherd mix who arrived at OC Animal Care as a stray in December 2022. Upon arrival, Jacob was very nervous but staff and volunteers made sure to go slow, giving him the space and the time he needed to adjust. Over time, we've seen him continue to grow and slowly get comfortable with the people the meets! 

Jacob still values taking the proper time to trust someone calling them his best friend, so we think he'll do best in a home with adults only. When out on walks or in the play yard, he'll stay close by, appreciating the companionship more than the activity itself. Jacob will make the most loyal and loving pup to whoever is lucky enough to adopt him!

Jacob's past may be a mystery, but we know he's dreaming of a future with a family who will spoil him rotten! to adopt Jacob, call (714) 935-6848 and mention Animal ID# A1795668.
