    The event will feature family-friendly entertainment throughout the shelter including games, raffles, trunk-or-treating and more. Trick-or-treaters are encouraged to wear their costumes, but please no masks or weapons.

    The shelter is offering a special “pumpkin promo” leading up to and during the event. Adopters can come by the shelter beginning Oct. 15 where they will find on the bottom of a pumpkin a discount on pets who are four months or older. The promotion continues throughout the month of October.

    There’s also a chance to show off your pet’s costumes a little early.

    Friends of PACC, Pima Animal Care Center’s official nonprofit partner, has teamed up with Tucson Screamers, creators of Tucson’s haunted house called “The Slaughterhouse” to raise funds for homeless pets.

    They’re hosting a virtual Spookiest Pet Contest. Head to Friends of PACC’s website, friendsofpacc.org, to submit a picture of your pet in their best Halloween costume, then vote on your favorite entry. You can vote every day to win one of three prize packs. All prize packs include tickets to The Slaughterhouse haunted house. Share your entry on social media with #SpookiestFriends2018, and invite all of your friends to vote for your spooky pet!

    If you buy tickets to the haunted house, use the promo code PACC. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Friends of PACC.

    Check out PACC’s pets online or visit them in person at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. The shelters hours are noon-7 p.m.  Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. All pets adopted from PACC will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit.
