    Pima Animal Care Center joins forces with one of its largest rescue partners, Lil Bit of Love, to host an adoption event, Sept. 15-17, at two area PetSmart stores for PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend. 

    Offsite adoptionsThe three-day offsite adoption event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the PetSmart store in Oro Valley, 10625 N. Oracle Rd, and the PetSmart store at Oracle and Wetmore, 4374 N. Oracle Rd. 

    Thanks to PACC’s partnership with Lil Bit of Love, potential adopters will have a wide selection of adoptable dogs to choose from, including some puppies and small dogs. Adoption fees will vary and select pets will even have waived fees. All adopted pets will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. A standard $18 dog licensing fee will apply to all adult dogs.

    Over the last three years, PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, has supported PACC’s mission of saving homeless pets by way of grant funding and providing offsite adoption locations across town to showcase the shelter’s homeless pets. To make this upcoming three-day event possible, PetSmart Charities granted PACC a $4000 award. 

    “Thanks to PetSmart Charities’ continued support, we’re able to host adoption events, like this one, which really shine a spotlight on pets in need,” said PACC Director Kristen Auerbach. “Our ability to place pets into loving homes depends heavily on the support we receive from our community and our rescue partners.”  

    In addition to the dogs at its two offsite adoption events, PACC will have adoptable cats at five local PetSmart stores, and adoptable dogs and cats at its shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
