The 5th Annual Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair at the Irvine Animal Care Center is right around the corner. Every year I remember this event because it almost always coincides with my birthday (December 5th for all you well wishers out there). We try our best to make it out to this event every year as it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump away from our house. One cool thing about this pet adoption is that you’re allowed to bring your fully vaccinated, well-behaved, leashed dog if you so choose.
So, if you’re looking for a dog, cat, rabbit, or other pet (yep, we’ve even seen pigs at the irvine animal care center) then come on down to the Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Fair this Saturday, December 3rd from 10am to 3pm. You’ll probably see us down their snapping a few pictures of the adoptable puppies and dogs.
Here’s some more information on the event:

What To Do At The Pet Adoption Fair
We’ve gone in the past and it’s mainly about pet adoption gathering many different pet rescues to show their dogs, puppies, cats, and kitties to the public. We’ve heard that in the past the Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair has been very successful in getting pets adopted just in time for Christmas.
Here’s some more information on the Home For The Holidays.
- 400+ Adoptable Animals
- 70+ Vendors and Exhibitors
- Food Court and Bake Sale
- Ask the Vet and Trainer Booths
- Silent Auction and Drawings
- Low-cost Microchip
Cost for admission into this event is $1 and as I mentioned earlier they allow you to bring your fully vaccinated, well-behaved, leashed dog.
Here’s a link to the Irvine Animal Care Center main page where you can see and FAQ section and a list of the Animal Rescues, Vendors, and Exhibitors.
Linus my first puppy was adopted from the Carson animal shelter and we’ve also volunteered as foster parents for dogs and puppies so we very much support pet adoption. If you’re considering getting that next dog or puppy please consider pet adoption and by all means visit this years Home For The Holidays Pet Adoption Fair. We’ll be there this Saturday…How about you? Have you been in the past or do you plan on going this weekend. Let us know if you’ve adopted a puppy from this event in the past or this Saturday. We’d love to hear about your new adopted pet!
