Can you believe the Eighth Annual Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption is right around the corner!?  Me neither!

I’m not sure, but I think I attended the very first Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption and wrote about it right here on the blog!  That would have been way back in December of 2007!  Of course this blogs inception was back in July 2007 (first blog post about our rescue pup, Linus was published in August 2007)

Anyhow we will be volunteering at the Guide Dogs of America booth at this years Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Fair.  So if you’re interested in guide dogs, puppy raising, pet adoption, or just want to chat please stop by and say hello.  Here’s the details on this years event:

The 8th annual Home for the Holidays pet adoption fair will feature more than 500 animals for adoption from 40+ animal shelters and rescue organizations.  All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.  There will also be vendors, low-cost microchips, a silent auction, food trucks and an opportunity drawing.  Parking is free and admission is just $1.


  • 800+ adoptable dogs, cats, rabbits, and more!
  • Pet-related vendors and services
  • Silent auction and opportunity drawings
  • Low-dost microchips
  • Free vet and trainer advice
  • Gourmet food trucks and bake sale

This event seems to get bigger every year and has spilled into the parking lot at the Irvine Animal Care Center.  While there aren’t a ton of pet products at this event their are quite a few animals up for adoption including dogs, cats, rabbits, and even pigs!  There’s a silent auction (we’ve won bids a few times at the silent auctions) and food trucks just in case you want to grab lunch to complete your day.  So come on by and support your favorite shelters and rescues and of course stop by and visit us at the Guide Dogs of America (GDA) booth.

We live in Orange County, California and there are 3 pet adoption events we try to go to every year to support our local shelters and rescues.  Here’s the list of can’t miss pet adoption events in the OC:

  1. America’s Family Pet Expo: Usually occurs mid April.  This years Pet Expo will be held April 10-12th 2015.  We’ll have more information early next year.
  2. Super Pet Adoption – I think this one is usually scheduled for the beginning of June.  I don’t think next years Super Pet Adoption has been scheduled yet.
  3. Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption – This is the one we will be at in less than 2 weeks!

What do you guys think of a calendar?  We go to several events every year and love to support our local shelters, rescues, and other non-profits.  In the name of ORGANIZATION I think I’ll put together a calendar for next year.  After all I do the same thing for all of our OCGDA outings!  Maybe you can visit us at some of our booths or outings in 2015.

Who else is “in” for the Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption?  If you we don’t see you at this years Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption then have a wonderful holiday season!
