    Pima Animal Care Center will join animal-welfare organizations across the country in hosting a free, three-day adoption event at select PetSmart stores Feb. 17-19 during PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend.

    Dozens of PACC dogs and cats will be available for adoption at five Tucson PetSmart locations – and all adoption fees will be waived for qualified, loving families. All pets will go to their new families spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and with a free vet visit voucher. A standard $17 licensing fee will apply to all adult dogs.

    “It’s not too late to find your Valentine,” said Justin Gallick, PACC director of community engagement, adding that PACC hopes to find families for 100 pets during the three-day event. 

    PetSmart Charities awarded PACC a $4,000 grant to underwrite its event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at these locations:
    • PetSmart at Oracle & Wetmore (dogs and cats)
    • PetSmart at El Con Mall, between Home Depot and Target (dogs and cats) 
    • PetSmart at Irvington & I-19 (dogs and cats)
    • PetSmart at River & Orange Grove (dogs and cats)
    • PetSmart at Grant & Swan (cats only)
    PACC will also honor the free adoption special at its shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Rd., all weekend long. The shelter opens from noon to 7 p.m. on Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
