Are you located in or around Orange County, CA and looking into Pet Adoption?  If so you should come out to the 4th annual Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair! We wrote a little bit about last year’s Home For The Holidays, but unfortunately we weren’t able to attend.

We’re going to do our best to make it out to this years pet adoption.  However, we’re going to leave the boys at home (sorry, Dublin, Stetson and Linus).

Yes. The IACC will be offering $20 off dog, cat and rabbit adoptions completed on event day.

Yes, there will be an ATM on premises.

Some rescue groups and vendors do not have the capability to charge a credit card.

In addition, please do not bring any dogs in heat.
