IRVINE, Calif. (June 15, 2016): On the heels of another successful Super Pet Adoption event, the Irvine Animal Care Center announces its inaugural Paw It Forward Summer Drive, a fundraiser that continues through Aug. 31. The Center has set a donation goal of $15,000 to go toward two special programs offered by the Center.
The Paw It Forward Summer Drive directly benefits Irvine Animal Care Center’s Third Chance for Pets and Enhanced Care programs:
- Third Chance for Pets: This program transfers animals from overcrowded Southern California shelters and brings them to the Center for a chance at finding their forever homes.
- Enhanced Care: The Center occasionally receives animals that have been injured or neglected, or that need additional medical treatment. This program funds the treatment these animals need to become healthy and adoptable.

The Irvine Animal Care Center provides sheltering, care and enrichment for homeless, neglected, abused or unwanted animals. Services include licensing for Irvine residents, pet adoptions and events.
