Irvine Animal Care Center Holiday Donation Drive takes place December 1-24
IRVINE, CA (November 26, 2013): Make a difference in the lives of homeless animals this holiday season by donating much needed items to the Irvine Animal Care Center Holiday Donation Drive taking place December 1-24. While the Center provides for the animal’s basic needs (food, shelter, medical care, vaccinations, microchipping, spaying and neutering), donations help make their stay more comfortable while they await a forever home.
Items currently needed are: food dispensing toys, soft treats, training harnesses and collars, leashes, fleece blankets, kitten nursing bottles and nipples, KMR milk replacement formula and toys. A complete “wish list” of items is available on the Center’s website, plus a gift registry of needed items is available on Amazon.com and Target.com under “Irvine Shelter.” All donations are tax deductible.
Donations may be dropped off at the Irvine Animal Care Center, located at 6443 Oak Canyon, Irvine. For more information, call 949-724-7740 or visit irvineshelter.org.
