The Irvine Animal Care Center invites the community to support its Foster Donation Drive, March 1-31.
Support puppies, kittens and young rabbits at the center by donating supplies such as formula, blankets and toys. View a complete wish list on the Irvine Animal Care Center’s Gift Registry at irvineanimals.org.
Animal-lovers can also enjoy an afternoon on the lawn “showering” the center’s new puppy and kittens with much-needed supplies at the Kitten & Puppy Shower on March 10, noon-2 p.m. Event and parking are free; donation suggested.
The Irvine Animal Care Center Foster Care Program provides shelter, supplies, food and veterinary care for animals too young to be spayed/neutered, or those recovering from medical procedures.
Foster parents provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, and baby rabbits, or animals recovering from a medical procedure, in their own homes. This includes time, energy and a quiet secure space away from any pets you may otherwise have. The Irvine Animal Care Center will provide the training, supplies, food and veterinary care. Fostering can last from a few days to several weeks.
The success of programs like Third Chance for Pets, which brings animals in from other Southern California shelters where their chances for survival are limited, relies heavily on the number of fosters the center has available. The more fosters supporting the center, the more animals it can help.
Those interested in becoming a foster pet parent can attend a Foster Volunteer Workshop on April 8, 1-4 p.m.
Registration required at yourirvine.org by Wednesday, March 28.
