Submit your pet’s photo for the Irvine Animal Care Center Photo Fundraiser

Is your pet ready for its close-up? The Irvine Animal Care Center is seeking photos for its annual fundraiser to help provide top-notch care for pets at the center. Supporting rescue programs at the center is easy – submit your favorite photo of your pet, then ask family and friends to vote for your pet’s photo.

All eligible photos with a minimum of five votes at the end of the contest will be included in the Irvine Animal Care Center 2023 Wall Calendar. The top 13 winners will have their pets featured with a full-page photo for one month in the calendar. Each participant will receive a printed calendar and additional copies will be available for sale online.

Photo submissions will be accepted August 1 through August 31. The entry fee is $25 per photo. Voting is online and open to the general public from August 1 to August 31. Votes cost $1 each. To enter your pet’s photo and/or vote, go to

All proceeds go to the center’s Enhanced Care, Foster Care and Third Chance for Pets programs. In 2021, a record $19,000 was raised through this event, funding the treatment and care of young, adult and elderly homeless animals.
