Each year, Orange County Animal Services investigates nearly 3,500 reports of animal cruelty, neglect and abandonment in our community.
Animal violence has been linked to human violence. In fact, studies have shown that animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent acts against people. To combat this problem, Orange County launched the "Cruelty Hurts" campaign, which is aimed at educating Orange County citizens about animal cruelty and its link to human violence.
Help us prevent animal abuse. Simply dial 3-1-1 to report abuse.
