The event will feature dozens of local pet rescue groups with a variety of pets available for adoption, including different breeds, sizes and ages.
The event will also include pet-related vendors, food trucks and the Animal Services mobile clinic onsite offering pet rabies vaccines and microchipping.

Orange County Animal Services (OCAS) is a progressive animal-welfare focused organization that enforces the Orange County Code to protect both citizens and animals.
OCAS is the only open admission shelter in Orange County, which means that it does not turn away any animal and accepts all animals, regardless of their temperament or health. The health and well-being of the animals in the care of OCAS is of the utmost importance to Orange County and its community.
Most animals are ideal candidates for adoption, yet some come to the shelter suffering from long-term and profound health problems, as a result of being homeless, stray or abused. On average, the shelter receives approximately 50 animals each day, but these numbers can double during peak summer months.
