It was a busy weekend and I’ll probably write a few posts about it over the next couple days. Sunday afternoon we visited the Irvine Animal Shelter for the Orange County Super Pet Adoption. As I mentioned in a previous post I visited the Pet Adoption last year, but this years event was bigger and better. I saw our friends from Guide Dogs of America and also our other friends at Cuddly Canines.

One thing I noticed at this years Pet Adoption were several signs with some interesting animal facts. I don’t think I found all of them, but I did take pictures of three of the signs I did come across.

Interesting Animal Shelter Facts


Foster parents for homeless animals are desperately needed. Please sign up at the Information Booth.

Volunteering as a puppy/dog foster parent is a very rewarding endeavor. If you have the time and space I highly recommend looking into fostering. We’ve fostered several dogs and puppies with the rescue organization Cuddly Canines.


Did You Know… In 7 years one female cat and her offspring can give birth to 420,000 kittens.

Now that’s an interesting fact! One of my friends had several litters of ferral kittens constantly coming through their neighborhood. I guess if on cat can produce that many kittens I could see how the cat population can get out of hand.


Did You Know…Only 1 out of every 10 dogs born ever finds a permanent home.

That’s a sad fact. I was very happy to see that the Super Adoption Event has grown and hopefully brings more awareness to our community.

I’m sure there were several other interesting fact signs that I missed. Unfortunately I was a little short on time, but I’m glad I had the chance to visit this wonderful event again this year.

Did you make it to the Orange County Super Pet Adoption?  Did you have a good time?  Did you adopt an animal?

  1. Im doing a tostmaster speech, pound or breed. That one fact, 1 out of 10, wow!!! thats shocking, theres a cat named daphene. Shes nice, I give her food everyday. she was boney and skinny. so we took her to the vet she had bone cancer, i was devastated. We spent her last moments eating lunch meat, her favorite. she was buried next to my old dog tiger. RIP DAPHENE

  2. @Jennifer, I totally agree. I do my best to try and encourage friends and family to get their next pets from the animal shelters or rescues.

  3. i feel bad for the dogs that get put to sleep instead of getting a second chance,every one shoould get a second chance even if your old or young to feel wanted for the first time or again.

  4. Ok. Sounds good 🙂 Yeah. I did have my newsletter monthly, but I wasn’t able to do it with school an all; so I changed it to every other month. It works really well that way 🙂

  5. @Sarah, I’m not too sure what I’m going to the newsletter yet…I’ll probably do some testing to see what works the best probably anywhere from once a week to once a month. The only problem with once a week is I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time to put together a newsletter that often.

  6. @Sarah, I’m sorry…hopefully he gets adopted soon.

    I’ve been very busy, but will hopefully get something together by the middle of next week.

  7. @Colby: No he didn’t 🙁 so only one animal got adopted that day.

    I subscribed to your newsletter FYI. When will you send out the newsletter?

  8. @Sarah, Did you find out if the man adopted the kitten? Hopefully he did.

    I’m going to probably put a short newsletter together for people who’ve already signed up to the newsletter announcing the contest and maybe a few other bits of information.
