Upcoming Events

The Irvine Animal Care Center hosts two large adoption events throughout the year, as well as various donation drives and smaller activities to support animals in need. Upcoming events and donations drives include:


Through Aug. 31. Don't miss out on making your furry, feathered or scaled friend a star! With a $25 entry fee donation, you can submit your pet's picture for guaranteed inclusion in the 2019 Irvine Animal Care Center calendar. Your pet will also be in the running to be one of the 13 lucky pets chosen by staff and volunteers to be featured as a full-page Pet of the Month in the calendar. Photos will be accepted through Aug. 31. Learn more and submit your pet's photo here.


Thursday, Sept. 18, 5:30 p.m. Support animals in need while enjoying a comedic night out on the town at the third annual Comedy Unleashed fundraiser at the Irvine Improv. Guests will be treated to dinner and a show, with nearly half the proceeds going toward the Irvine Animal Care Center. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. Comedy Unleashed is open to adults 18 and older only. Purchase tickets at the Irvine Improv or online here. For more information on Comedy Unleashed, view our event flier.
