IRVINE, CA (September 12, 2013):  Help support animals residing at the City of Irvine Animal Care Center (IACC) by participating in its ongoing Animal and Kennel Sponsorship Program. For the cost of a piece of candy, individual sponsors can help save a life and provide the Center’s animals with basic necessities while they await their new homes.

A sponsorship of twenty dollars a month, or approximately 66 cents a day, enables the IACC to provide bedding, toys and special medical treatment for animals that are sick or injured. Animal and kennel sponsorships are available for a six-month to one-year period of time, with each sponsor being acknowledged with a personalized sign posted on the kennel of their sponsored animal.

Animal and kennel sponsorship is a special way to honor a loved one or pet, and can also be an effective tool to advertise your business. All sponsorships are tax deductible. For more information, contact the Animal Care Center at 949-724-7741 or visit
