    Pima Animal Care Center will host a three-day adoption event, May 5-7, at five local PetSmart stores and offer waived adoption fees on all pets in honor of PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend.

To encourage loving families to adopt, PACC will waive the adoption fees on all pets, including puppies and kittens. Best of all, adopted 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.

    “We love participating in this nation-wide initiative that helps so many of our community’s homeless pets find homes,” 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 $5,350 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.
