OCPoundhounds is recognized by the State of California and the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non profit located in central Orange County, California. We have been rescuing small dogs in Southern California since 2005. We are an all-Volunteer run, foster home-based organization with no paid members and no centralized facility. Our foster care system is 100% dependent on private homes offered by caring and experienced dog owners.
OCPH is a small organization that rescues only a few "True to the Breed" quality dogs at a time. This way we can dedicate quality positive reinforcement training to help them become the best pet they are capable of being.
Most of our dogs come from commercial breeding operations. ALL dogs receive full veterinary care. Thank you for watching!
We believe a home cooked, or even better a raw, or BARF diet, is the best thing you can do for your dog to keep them at optimal health. Vets like to push their veterinarian prescription food, which is low quality and based upon grains, or potato. Vets do not get any formal training in dog or cat nutrition, but are "informed" by the pet food manufacturers.
Here at OCPoundhounds believe in managing your dog (or cat's) health by questioning before vaccinating or feeding veterinarian prescription foods. The veterinary profession since the 1980's has all been about "up selling" with the quality of veterinary education diminishing. Question, question, question and do your own research. Here you'll find video's we hope will be of educational purpose
