The city's legal limit for adult domestic animals is four, said Ryan Drabek, a spokesman for Orange County Animal Care Services.

Seventy-five animals seized from a Santa Ana pet shop last month will be available for adoption Saturday, officials announced. Fifty puppies, six kittens, 18 rabbits and a guinea pig were taken from Village Pets near South Coast Plaza after authorities found them in 101-degree temperatures with unclean water. The shop's owner, cited for operating the shop in substandard conditions, blamed the problems on a misunderstanding. The adoption is scheduled from 10 a.m.

Deer foraging for food after the recent wildfires are being killed in record numbers by automobiles because they are leaving denuded hills and approaching roads, authorities said Wednesday. Motorists have killed 21 deer in Orange County canyon areas since the Santiago fire in October, said Ryan Drabek, spokesman for Orange County Animal Care Services. That brings the number of injuries and deaths this year to 85, compared with 59 in 2006 and 40 in 2005.

Three mastiff breed dogs ranging from 95 to 125 pounds escaped from a Laguna Hills yard and mauled a 61-year-old woman Thursday, authorities said. The woman was taking an afternoon walk in the 25900 block of Terra Bella Avenue when the dogs attacked her, said Lt. Hal Brotheim of the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Two male neighbors tried to get the dogs off the woman by hitting them with shovels, Brotheim said. The woman was taken to the hospital and underwent surgery. "She was in pretty bad shape," Brotheim said.

Dozens of Orange County dogs have been stricken with the often deadly parvovirus, leading animal health agencies to open emergency vaccination clinics. Fifty-one dogs with parvovirus have been seen by Orange County Animal Care Services in the last two months. Fewer than 10 cases are usually seen during that time span. "For us, this is a significant increase," Animal Care Services Director Jennifer Phillips said.
