Super Pet Adoption Features Excel as a Sponsor

Posted on Categories Philanthropy

The Irvine Animal Care Center provides sheltering, care and enrichment for homeless, neglected, abused or unwanted animals. Their services include licensing for Irvine residents, pet adoptions and events. They specialize in providing programs and services to continuously improve human and animal relationships in Irvine and surrounding areas. That’s why Excel Packaging was so excited to sponsor and participate in their 11th Annual Super Pet Adoption!

The annual Super Pet Adoption invites families, residents and local businesses to participate in adopting and supporting local pets-in-need. This year’s event was a great success. Over 44 animal rescue groups and shelters participated, and 5,500 people attended. Vendors also participated, providing everything from low-cost microchipping, to free veterinarian advice, to gourmet food trucks and a bake sale featuring treats for humans and pets.

The animals were the real stars of the show! Thanks to the Irvine Animal Care Center and all the other shelters that participated, 275 animals found their “fur-ever” homes that day. The event also generated $44,000 in donations, which will go towards supporting all those animals that come into the care of the Irvine Animal Care Center.

We were so happy to participate this year for the first time! Other than sponsoring the Super Pet Adoption, our team also attended and handed out almost 6,000 pounds of dog food to attendees. We loved being around all the animals and witnessing many of them find the loving arms of their new families. We wish all the pets and their new guardians lots of love and success. We already can’t wait to attend next year!

Excel Packaging is not only a manufacturer of high-quality flexible packaging, but also a proud member of our community. That’s why we’re so committed to taking time to come together as a team to volunteer at our local non-profit organizations. Irvine Animal Care Center is an excellent shelter and adoption center that also supports other animal care centers in the area. We’re proud to be one of their 2017 Annual Sponsors.
