Orange County Unveils New Animal Shelter
On Wednesday, the County of Orange officially unveiled the recently completed animal shelter in the City of Tustin.

The new 10-acre OC Animal Care Shelter is equipped with indoor/outdoor kennels, larger cat kennels, surgery suites, multiple play yards, an exotic animal area, an enhanced community room, climate controlled buildings, and much more. This facility replaces the old OC Animal Care Shelter in Orange that was constructed in the early 1940’s. The new facility will offer refuge and care for over 19,000 animals annually and foster the human-animal bond, promote safety and education in our community and be a fun place to visit, adopt and volunteer.

This project came to fruition due to the hard work of County staff, especially OC Animal Care Director Dr. Jennifer Hawkins, OC Community Resources, and OC Public Works. In addition community volunteer clad in light blue shirts collectively put in over 10,000 hours of service to ensure that animals were safe and well taken care of.

A family-friendly grand opening is scheduled for March 24, when members of the public will be invited to explore the new shelter campus and participate in fun activities. Members of the public will have the opportunity to adopt animals from the new OC Animal Care facility beginning March 25.

Chairman Do Sponsors Health Fair
Representing the largest population of CalOptima recipients, Chairman Andrew Do championed CalOptima, our county organized health system, to conduct the most extensive member health needs assessment in the agency’s 22-year history.

That assessment revealed areas in need of improvement. The results found that 41% didn’t see a dentist because of cost, 25% didn’t have or know of a dentist, 28% said it takes too long to get an appointment, among other findings.

In direct response, Chairman Do is partnering with the Tzu Chi Foundation to host a Health Fair in Santa Ana. Free services will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis and include medical, dental, vision, and acupuncture.

The health fair will be held March 18, 2018, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Ana located at 950 West Highland Street, Santa Ana CA, 92703.
