    PACCOn Tuesday, July 11, the Pima County Board of Supervisors approved 4-1 a revised fee ordinance for animal care services provided by Pima Animal Care Center. Revisions include new sheltering and veterinary care fees for Marana and Sahuarita residents, and updated verbiage throughout the ordinance. 

    The new animal sheltering and veterinary care fees will apply only to Marana and Sahuarita residents, who as of July 1, 2017 reside in jurisdictions that do not have an intergovernmental agreement with Pima County. Residents from either jurisdiction who visit PACC for animal care services will be referred back to their respective town. However, those residents who elect not to visit their town’s animal care provider, and still surrender a pet to PACC, must pay for services provided by the shelter. Service fees include a $60 daily animal sheltering fee, a $120 hourly veterinary care fee, and a $120 euthanasia fee.

    Lastly, reflecting the animal welfare progress Pima County has made, the revised ordinance updates all references to PACC from “pound” to “shelter” throughout the regulation.

    District 4 Supervisor Steve Christy voted against the revised ordinance.
