Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Fair


The City of Irvine Animal Care Center will host the 7th annual Home for the Holidays pet adoption fair on Sunday, December 8 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. More than 500 homeless animals will be available for adoption from rescue organizations and shelters including dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.

The annual event features dozens of vendors, gourmet food trucks, a silent auction, low-cost micro-chipping and an opportunity drawing. Each animal available for adoption is spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and evaluated by a veterinarian. Cats and dogs are vaccinated.

Admission is $1. Parking is free. Leashed dogs are welcome. Sponsored by PetSmart, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Canvas Pet and Subaru. The event’s proceeds benefit the Animal Care Center and its efforts to provide care and support to thousands of homeless, neglected and abused animals each year.
