The Ducks will host “OC Animal Care Night” at Honda Center this Sunday, Feb. 15 vs. Washington. The night aims to raise awareness for OC Animal Care, an open-admission animal shelter that provides temporary shelter and medical care for lost, owned or stray animals. Fans are encouraged to visit The Hockey Spot (outside the South doors of Honda Center) from 3-5 p.m. this Sunday to receive more information on OC Animal Care’s efforts and their mission to find adoptive homes for local pets. OC Animal Care will have dogs on-hand to interact with fans and opportunities to adopt these lovable animals.
Fans are also asked to donate pet food, toys and new or gently used towels and blankets for use at OC Animal Care’s shelter. The donations can be brought to the shelter’s informational booth at The Hockey Spot. All dogs at The Hockey Spot on Sunday will be available for adoption beginning Monday morning (10:00am) at OC Animal Care (561 The City Dr. South, Orange). In addition, a silent auction of Ducks pet-themed merchandise will take place at Section 214 throughout Sunday’s game. All proceeds will benefit OC Animal Care through the Anaheim Ducks Foundation. For more information on how you can support OC Animal Care, please visit, www.ocpetinfo.com.
The Hockey Spot takes place prior to every Sunday home game on the South side of Honda Center. Open two hours prior to the start of every Sunday home game, The Hockey Spot offers interactive hockey games and other family activities.
