Giving Tuesday- November 28th, 2017


We are excited to announce our Giving Tuesday 2017 campaign!


This year we are focusing on our animal ambassadors and all the ways they help Irvine succeed. Through programming and education our animal ambassadors are a vital part of Irvine’s mission.

DID YOU KNOW? Most of our animals have come to Irvine because they would not be able to survive in the wild on their own, or they were given away as “un-wanted” pets.

THE COST OF ANIMAL CARE: Currently we have over 80 animals on-site that require daily care. Caring for these animals is a rewarding process as we get to witness their progress and success. However, the cost of animal care is immense and we are often unable to accept new animals because of our limited resources.

YOU CAN HELP: Thanks to our generous donors and members we are able to keep Irvine open 7 days a week free of charge. We are asking for your support this Giving Tuesday to allow us to continue to provide a home for animals who desperately need it and to give our animals the best care possible.

  * To say “thank you” for providing food, shelter, and care, our animal ambassadors are creating “original artwork” for you. Anyone who donates $100 or more will receive an animal painting by one of our animal ambassadors. These paintings are created as an enrichment activity for our animals using non-toxic paint. These paintings provide animals like snakes, turtles, and frogs, the opportunity to experience new surroundings. They make a great gift or an interesting piece of art that is sure to be a conversation starter.
