Attention dog owners in Orange, construction will begin early February to renovate the Orange Dog Park(Yorba Park). The park will be getting a much needed upgrade, but will be closed at times during the renovation. I have reached out the to the Orange Dog Park Association for info on closure dates, and will update this post as soon as I hear something. Below are some of the more important details. For the full story from the OC Register CLICK HERE.
Cost: $1.97 million to $2.5 million
Main issue: As a closed landfill, there is a lot of room for improvement to give the park a sense of being more thoroughly designed and complete, officials said. An aging vapor extraction and monitor system will need to be replaced.
Coming upgrades: Expanded dog park, new watering stations and benches. Pending funding, project might also include new picnic tables, portable dog exercise equipment, shade canopies and new restrooms.
ETA: Park closing for first phase of project within a few weeks, completion expected by the fall.
Starting today, November 3rd, the OC Animal Care Shelter located in Orange, CA will be waiving their adoption fees due to their shelter being at 95% capacity. If you are looking to add a new family member to your pack soon, please consider adopting from this shelter. When shelter are so overcrowded, it put more stress on all of the animals as well as the staff. CLICK HERE for a list of all the animals currently available for adoption.

A Win for the Dogs of Orange County!
A public hearing on the subject of wether or not the unofficial dog beach located where the Santa Ana river meets the ocean should remain an off-leash area for dogs to play took place on Tuesday night. The Parks, Beach, and Recreation Commission rejected the proposal to enforce the leash laws and have allowed that area of the beach to remain an off-leash dog playground for our furry friends!
