    Dogs in kennelPima Animal Care Center desperately needs adopters and fosters. Currently, PACC is caring for approximately 700 animals, including 431 dogs, 243 cats and 26 other animals such as birds and rabbits. 

    Due to the overcrowding, PACC is offering a “name your own price” adoption event. The special starts Aug. 29 and will run through Sunday, Sept. 2. The price you choose will cover your potential pet’s spay/neuter surgery, a microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations, and a free vet visit. There is a $19 licensing fee for dogs.

    If you don’t have the time to commit to adopting a dog, there is also an option to foster them. You can do it for a few months, a few weeks, or even just a few hours. To start that process, email PACC.foster@pima.gov with the subject line “interested in fostering.” You can also visit PACC's foster webpage at www.pima.gov/foster if you have questions.

    PACC will be closed on Labor Day and also on Sept. 12 for staff training.

    The shelter is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. or 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
