Home for the Holidays 2017

The City of Irvine Animal Care Center will host its 11th annual Home for the Holidays pet adoption fair 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 10. More than 30 pet rescue groups and animal shelters will bring about 600 homeless dogs, cats, rabbits and small animals for adoption. 

The annual event features dozens of pet-related vendors, gourmet food trucks, a silent auction, low-cost microchipping and an opportunity drawing. Each animal available for adoption is spayed or neutered, microchipped and evaluated by a veterinarian. Cats and dogs are vaccinated appropriate to age. 

Suggested donation for the event is $2 per person or $5 per family. Parking is free.

Please view the Home for the Holidays pet adoption fair flier for more information, or contact Center staff at 949-724-7740 or dharris@cityofirvine.org.
