This past weekend was the 8th Annual Home for the Holidays Adoption Event in Irvine, CA.  And boy was it a big event with lots of vendors and animal rescues coming together.  This is a great event that helps to raise awareness about the over-population growth of homeless pets and to help these sweet pups and kittens find new homes.

It is extremely important to get your pet spayed or neutered.  It is the responsible thing to do as a pet owner.  Millions of unwanted and homeless animals are put to death every year due to over-population and unwanted strays.
The event is hosted twice a year by the Irvine Animal Care Center in Southern California.  This one is the Winter Holiday event, while another similar one is hosted in late Spring each year. 

Barks of Love has a prime location for our booth every year!
We made over $200 in donations that day selling cookies, pet apparel and other gear, thanks to our awesome volunteers Fabian, Alma, Dayana and more!

Even the little humans love to chip in!  Getting kids involved and educating them about the importance about being a responsible pet owner is awesome!!!

We got so many adoption applications for our BoL fosters.  We hope we'll be able to find the perfect home for each and every one of them.

In order from left to right, below is Stella, a female Chihuahua & Pitbull puppy mix.  
We call them Chi-pits!  She's got FIVE brothers and sisters who are also available for adoption.  But they weren't able to make it to the event.

Next is Rocky who is a beautiful and so-well behaved male Shepherd mix.

And last is Nalu who is a giant great dane mix.  Boy, oh boy!
Wally and Buddy, chihuahua mix brothers were also there.  How can you resist these cute little faces?
They loved all the attention they were getting and all the walks they took around the event showing off their cuteness.  
They were almost falling asleep standing up!


Below are two sweeties who are also looking for homes.  I took photos of them when I was taking a stroll and they are adoptable through a private rescue.  If anyone is interested or have questions, please contact the info listed below their photos.  They are not affiliated with Barks of Love in any way.
This is Toby, a 1.5 yr old male terrier mix.
Contact orkid2121@gmail.com
or 562-450-9711 for more information.

This is Oreo, a 4 yr old male lab/chihuahua mix.
Contact orkid2121@gmail.com 
or 562-450-9711 for more information.


Paige, the Director of Barks of Love and her good friend, Karen were also at the event, giving lots of love to Wally and Buddy.


And here's Phil, our Chief Operating Officer and Dog Wrangler giving LOADS of love with a welcomed visitor to our booth.  Sloppy kisses for the win!


These two little guys came by with their Mom & Dad and got cookies and made a donation to our rescue.  Awwww.....thanks guys!


.
This little poodle model was working it in all her cute outfits.  And her mama bought her a new Christmas dress just in time for the holidays!  
I have never seen an Old English Shepherd Dog up close before and I even got to pet him. He was like a huge fluffy pillow!  His name is Garth!
And last but not least, another visitor to our booth.  A cute little Shi-Tzu who patiently waited while her mom chit chatted with us at the booth.

All in all, it was a great day.  The weather was perfect after a week of endless rain.  Come check out this event each year in the Spring and during Christmas.  There was food, dogs and cats, shopping, free gifts, raffles and lots more.  It's a fun affair for the whole family!
