University High School had a contingent of Trojans at Irvine’s Animal Shelter this last weekend, for the Annual Home For The Holidays Pet Fair. The club, com-PAW-ssion, volunteered to assist in any way they could and were part of a 1000+ person volunteer base that helped over 500 animals from over 40 different shelters at the event. Pictured from left to right are Lavi Zhao, Jody Efron, and Naomi Efron with one of the 287 animals that were adopted that day. The event raised more than $24,000 for the center.
