PACC is closed on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 22. But on Friday, Nov. 23, the shelter will be open noon to 5 p.m. with adoption fees waived for any pet with black fur, ages four months and up.

    The deal is good for any pet with black fur, even just a black spot. The prices for other pets have been reduced by 50 percent. A $19 licensing fee will apply to dogs. The hope is to clear out the shelter before the holidays through adoption and/or fostering. Families looking to do a little bonding together can take a dog out for the day through our day trips program. People can foster for a few hours, a few days, or a few weeks.

    People can also do a little holiday shopping at the “Central Pet: Adopt. Shop. Give.” pet supply store. It’s located right in the adoptions lobby, offering leashes, collars, bed, treats, and more. The store is open whenever PACC is open. Half of the proceeds go to Friends of Pima Animal Care Center, the official nonprofit partner to PACC. 

    For #GivingTuesday Nov. 27, the shelter is hoping people will consider giving to Friends of PACC. Every dollar goes towards lifesaving surgeries, medical treatments, supplies and more. Anyone interested in donating can visit the Friends of PACC website: www.friendsofpacc.org.

    All pets adopted from PACC come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip, and a free vet visit. People who are interested in adopting a pet can look for them online or visit them in person at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. PACC’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. or 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
