IRVINE ADOPTION EVENTS
Twice a year we participate in huge adoption events at the Irvine Animal Care Center: Home for The Holidays in December and Super Pet in June. We get a big boost in adoptions from these events, and we couldn't do it without the
Disney Voluntears who help us out. Here's some of the team from the event on December 10th, 2017.
Groom Expo West 2017
Every February we provide the dogs for the Rescue Roundup grooming competition at Groom Expo West in Pasadena. It's one of the largest grooming expos in the world. Last year's winner was Portland groomer Sara Szymanski, who earned $1000 in prize money. Her winning dog was a B&B volunteer's dog: Poco, a volunteer himself. He is great at socializing our shy dogs.
