The Irvine Pet Adoption is back for it’s 7th year! As far as we know Irvine Animal Shelter has two of these large Pet Adoption Fairs every year. The summertime event is dubbed the Super Pet Adoption. We actually recall going to one of the first ones with our (at the time) puppy in training, Stetson. Guide Dogs of America even ran a booth back then as I remember meeting up with Sheila and her (at the time) puppy in training Eagan, a Black and Tan Labrador Retriever.
Unfortunately, many years past and GDA did not have a booth at the Irvine Animal Shelter Pet Adoption Fairs, but guess what? You will get a chance again to see Guide Dogs of America and their puppies in training at the 7th Annual Home for the Holidays. I plan on visiting the festivities as well, but I’m not sure yet if Adelle is going to join me…we’ll see…
7th Annual Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair
So what is the Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Fair all about? I think it’s probably one of the largest pet adoptions in Orange County with many southern Califonria rescues and shelters participating. The only one that I know of that rivals it is the America’s Family Pet Expo at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, CA.
Here are some of the details on this years event:
WHAT: 7th Annual Pet Adoption Fair Home For The Holidays
WHEN: December 8th, 2013, 10am – 3pm
WHERE: Irvine Animal Care Center
6443 Oak Canyon Road,
Irvine, CA 92618
Home for the Holidays was created by the Irvine Animal Care Center seven years ago to bring together rescues and shelters with one shared goal – to find homes for hundreds of homeless animals. Unlike similar pet adoption events, Home for the Holidays takes place in one afternoon at one easy-to-navigate, enclosed location. The Center makes it easy for you to find your new best friend. Last year, more than 250 lives were saved.
This year’s event will take place Sunday, December 8 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Event highlights include: 500+ adoptable dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals, dozens of pet product vendors, 50+ silent auction items, low-cost microchips and free vet and trainer advice.
- More than 500 animals for adoption
- Opportunity Drawings
- Dozens of Pet Product Vendors
- Silent Auction
- Admission $1
- Free Parking
This is a great event even if you’re not looking to adopt, but you’re just an animal lover. It gives everyone a chance to get a few pets and cuddles in as well as make a few donations to your favorite rescues, shelters, and charities. There are also a number of product vendors just in case you were looking for something special for your puppy at home.
…and don’t forget to visit our Guide Dogs of America booth and say hello to our puppies and puppy raisers.
So are you looking to adopt your next puppy or pet? If so, then I highly recommend visiting this years Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair. We’ll be there working on our amateur photography chops.
