    dogs going to PACCOn Thursday, June 28 at about 9 a.m., Pima Animal Care Center assisted the Pima County Sheriff’s Department with an investigation in Three Points area involving over 100 animals, including dogs and livestock. Sheriff deputies served a search warrant on the property to perform a welfare check and called PACC for assistance with the animals. 

    Initial on-scene reports from PACC’s Animal Protection Service officers estimate about 40 dogs, 50 chickens or roosters, 1 ferret, 1 snake and about 10 potbelly pigs living outdoors. PACC officers are reviewing the condition of the animals. 

    Property owners have agreed to surrender most of the animals to PACC, which means the dogs, if healthy, will be immediately available for adoption or foster. The farm animals will be sent to partner groups who handle livestock. APS officers have started coordinating with additional shelter operations for medical evaluations and preparation for later adoptions.

    Shelter officials expect the animals to arrive at PACC by 2 p.m.

    The Sheriff’s Department is currently leading the investigation.
