Irvine Animal Care Center
The Irvine Animal Care Center (IACC) is a pro-humane, municipal animal shelter that continually strives to strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the welfare of animals by promoting their humane care and treatment. The shelter’s five acre, park-like facility cares for more than 4,500 homeless, neglected and abused animals every year. The IACC strives to provide a safe and stress free environment for shelter pets temporarily in its care. All animals receive veterinary care, high-quality food, soft bedding and daily socialization. In 2007, the IACC was presented the Shelter of the Year award by Dogs in Review and Bow Tie, Inc. The Shelter was selected for their innovative programs and disaster relief efforts during that year’s Southern California wildfires. They continue to take progressive strides in the field of animal welfare.
