Irvine, CA 92618
Date: December 10, 2017 at 10 a.m.
If you’re looking to add a new member to your family this holiday season, this is the event for you. More than 30 pet-adoption groups will be present at this fair. While cats and dogs will be available for adoption, smaller animals like rabbits will also be available if a dog or cat is not right for your home. The suggested donation for this event is $2 per individual or $5 per family, which is a pretty good deal considering you might leave here with a family member that will be with you for years.
