If anyone is looking to bring home their new best friend, this weekend may provide the perfect opportunity. This Sunday, June 2, the Irvine Animal Care Center will be holding its 13th annual Super Pet Adoption, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The event is in conjunction with over 35 animal shelters and pet rescue groups, who are expected to offer up for adoption more than 500 homeless dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals.
In addition to the adoptions, the day will consist of food trucks, a bake sale, low-cost microchipping and dozens of pet-related vendors, making it an equally viable day for those who are already pet owners, or those simply looking to support their local animal community.
All animals up for adoption are already spayed/neutered and microchipped. They have also been evaluated by a veterinarian and vaccinated appropriately up to their age.
The Irvine Animal Care Center is “committed to providing a safe, clean, enriching and caring environment focused on increasing animal adoption into responsible homes while promoting healthy human and animal relationships.” It also runs on a policy of no allowing owner-requested euthanasia of any pets that are determined to be healthy, treatable and adoptable.
Irvine Animal Care Center, 6443 Oak Canyon, Irvine; Sun., June 2, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; suggested donation $2/person or $5/family. (949) 724-7740, irvineanimals.org.
