Please note: To protect the community and City of Irvine staff, while encouraging safe placement of adoptable pets, the Irvine Animal Care Center is operating by appointment only. The center will remain closed to the public for all drop-in services. Learn more about our adoption process at irvineanimals.org/appointment.
Staff are on-site to care for the animals during operating hours. If you have a concern or need an appointment to surrender your pet, please call the center at 949-724-7740 during operating hours. This preventative measure is in response to mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Please visit cityofirvine.org for updates.
The Irvine Animal Care Center provides sheltering, care, and enrichment for homeless, neglected, abused, or unwanted animals. Services include licensing for Irvine residents, pet adoptions, and events.
