We depend on the generosity of animal lovers in our community. Without public and corporate donations, we could not provide for the adoptable pets in our care. Every donation helps—no matter how much.


On average, it costs $300 to care for a dog until it finds its forever home. Additionally, The Pet Adoption Center of Orange County is in the process of raising funds to complete construction at the center. Thus, cash donations are greatly appreciated.

Our current wish list includes:

  • Exercise Pens — which will provide us the ability to bring other rescue group’s dogs in for daily adoption events
  • Appliances — Portable dishwasher
  • Electronics — iPad, Mac Mini
  • Cleaning — Bleach, Clorox wipes, Laundry Detergent, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Windex
  • Gift Cards— Amazon, Home Depot, Petco, Petsmart

The Pet Adoption Center of Orange County has been approved for exemption from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 47-3705568.

If you’d like to contribute by check, please mail your donation to: P.O. Box 80400, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  92688-0400
