Month-long fostering donation campaign supports young pets at Irvine Animal Care Center

The Irvine Animal Care Center invites the community to support its Foster Giving Campaign, March 1-31. Support the center’s new puppies and kittens, post-surgery pets, and pets healing from injury by donating supplies such as formula, mother and baby cat food, and toys. Donate to the Foster Care program from the center’s Amazon Wish List to have items shipped directly to the center. Check out the full Irvine Animal Care Center Wish List at irvineanimals.org.

Pet lovers can also support the Foster Care program by dropping off new pet supplies during the donation celebration on Saturday, March 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the center. Participants will receive an Irvine Animal Care Center Supporter sticker for their donation.

In addition to supporting young animals and healing, attendees can also help celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Irvine Animal Care Center while donating to the Foster Giving Campaign. A list of the 40 most needed items will be available at irvineanimals.org/40and special bonus activities will be announced on social media throughout the year.

The center’s Foster Care program provides a home environment, supplies, food, and veterinary care for animals too young to be adopted, those with behavioral needs, and those recovering from medical procedures. Members of the public interested in providing temporary care for these animals can learn more about irvineanimals.org/foster.

The Irvine Animal Care Center is located at 6443 Oak Canyon Road. For more information, visit irvineanimals.org or call 949-724-7740.
