Pima Animal Care Center is committed to providing timely service to residents and compassionate care to animals, while working to support public safety, find homes for homeless animals and educate the community about responsible pet ownership.
The Silverbell facility is open from noon until 7 p.m. weekdays, and from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekends. We're closed the last Sunday of the month for deep cleaning.
Proposed Pima Animal Care Bond Improvements
The Pima County Board of Supervisors has authorized a bond election for November 2014, giving voters the opportunity to determine whether to update the shelter. Please visit our information page

Empty the Shelter
Two weeks ago, the leaders of PetSmart Charities® in Phoenix read the news
about how Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) is caring for nearly 1,000 dogs and cats in a shelter that's built for less than half that number. They wanted to help PACC get some much-needed breathing room, so they awarded the organization an $8,000 grant to host this weekend’s free Empty the Shelter Adoption Event at the shelter and four PetSmart stores!
“We’re so grateful that our friends at PetSmart Charities® are stepping up to help our pets in their time of need,” PACC’s Chief of Operations, Kristin Barney, said. “With our community’s support, we can beat our goal of sending 200 deserving pets home!”
Staff and volunteers will be bringing adoptable dogs to the following PetSmart locations from 10 to 4 on Friday, Oct. 17, and Saturday, Oct. 18: Broadway and Pantano, Grant and Swan, Orange Grove and I-10 and Irvington and I-19. All dog adoption fees will be waived, so adopters will only have to pay the $15 license charge.
PACC will be offering FREE adoptions on cats, dogs, puppies and kittens all weekend long at its Silverbell Rd. shelter, too.
