One way to find the best home for a pet is through screening. Before you can be considered to adopt a pet from SBACC, you need to fill out an adoption application with questions about how (and low long) you are willing to take care of the pet. It may seem like a hassle, but the reason so many pets end up in shelters is because they’re abandoned. The staff at the shelter just wants to ensure that the animal won’t end up abandoned again. SBACC partners with other shelters in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego Counties to try to find the best home available for each of its pets.

OCHS participates in local events and programs in our community to reach out to the public about animal shelters and to educate them in animal care and the effects of "not knowing" about pet ownership and responsibility can have. OCHS also provides classes to the public. These classes and programs range from educating potential owners on the responsibility of pet ownership to pet care for new owners and even courses on animal safety for those who do not know what to do when encountering an animal. Our shelter has our own trainer on staff to assess our pets and provide our new adopters with classes to train their new pet.OCHS also works hand in hand with animal control, and helps is enforcing licensing and other animal ordinances. Our shelter provides each of their pets with shelter and care until their owner is found or their cases are closed. If no owner comes to redeem their pet, then we find them a new home that will better provide care for our pets. We also reach out to other shelter, not just in Orange County, but also in surrounding Counties. Due to the high numbers of stray and unwanted pets, many shelters become overwhelmed with animals, we try to relieve them of their unfortunate decision to euthanize, by providing their animals with homes, when we have the space to accommodate for them. We hope by rescuing animals from other shelters, we will allow them more time, to find their perfect match, and for the community to find the life-long friend.OCHS also serves our community by providing another place for owner's to surrender an animal. The reasons for giving up an animal can vary, but without local shelters and humane rescues, those animals would be left abandoned to care for themselves.
