Each year, Animal Services employees and volunteers decorate the Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC) for the holidays. The centerpiece is a tree decorated with cards listing items people can donate in-kind. Through the “Comfort and Joy” drive, individuals and organizations can donate large blankets, canned dog and cat food, and pet toys, which are in constant use at the shelter. Canned food is especially important, as it helps transition puppies and kittens from formula to dry food. It also provides nutrition to sick and injured animals who often prefer wet food during recovery.
Residents can stop by the IACC to pick up a tag before shopping or download and print tags at home. Donors are encouraged to bring items and monetary gifts to the IACC, 4140 Valley View Lane, no later than Dec. 31.
There are two ways to participate:
