The Irvine Animal Care Center is hosting a “Kitten and Puppy Shower” on Saturday, April 25 from 1-4 p.m. to help raise supplies needed to care for orphaned kittens and puppies.
“Kittens and puppies require more care and supplies, said Rick Greenwood, Interim Manager at the Irvine Animal Care Center. “We need formula, nursing bottles, bedding supplies and toys to care for our youngest guests as they await their forever homes.”
Donations are greatly appreciated and a wish list of needed items is available at irvineshelter.org. The Center is also registered at Target.com and Amazon.com.
Items will benefit the Center’s Foster Care program, which places kittens and puppies too small to adopt with caring volunteers who provide the animals with a temporary, loving home until they are eligible for adoption. For additional event information or to learn more about the Center’s Foster Care program call 949-724-7740.
