Submit Your Pet’s Photo for the Irvine Animal Care Center Photo Fundraiser

Is your pet ready for its close-up? The Irvine Animal Care Center is seeking photo entries for its annual Photo Fundraiser to help provide top-tier care for center pets. Supporting life-saving programs at the center is easy — submit your favorite photo of your pet, then get your family and friends to vote for your pet’s picture.

All eligible photos with a minimum of five votes by the end of the contest will be included in the 2023 Irvine Animal Care Center wall calendar. The top 13 winners will have their pets featured with a full-page photo for a month in the calendar. Each entrant will receive a print calendar, and additional copies will be available for sale online.

Photo submissions will be accepted from August 1 through August 31. The entry fee is $25 per photo. Voting is online and open to the general public from August 1 through August 31. Votes are $1 each. To enter your pet’s photo and/or cast your vote, visit

All proceeds benefit the center’s Enhanced Care, Foster Care, and Third Chance for Pets programs. In 2021, a record $19,000 was raised through this event, funding treatment and care for homeless young, adult, and senior animals.
