Shelter officials launched the special to incentivize the community to adopt from its significantly overcrowded shelter, which currently has about 463 pets. 

    “Our dog kennels are full, and because we recently rescued 57 cats and kittens from a hoarding situation, our cats need more space, too,” said José Ocaño, PACC’s director of operations. 

    As of Wednesday morning, the shelter had 331 dogs and 132 cats in its care. 

    The two-day free adoption sale begins at noon Friday at PACC’s shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road and will extend to PACC’s five partner PetSmart stores through Saturday. The sale does not include the $17 licensing fee for dogs and will not apply to puppies and kittens less than 6 months old.

    As always, adopted pets come spayed or neutered, which eliminates the possibility of future litters, and they also come with up-to-date vaccinations, microchips, and with a free vet visit, too. 

    Help PACC make room at its shelter by adopting a new furry friend. Visit the shelter or PACC’s website to see the pets ready for adoption.
