    Throughout the Tucson Gem, Mineral, & Fossil showcase, adopters will get a variety of discount offers on the adoption of pets that are four months or older. In the adoptions lobby, there will be a plastic treasure chest full of plastic gems. Visitors will have the chance to dig through a treasure chest full of colorful gems and coins that will reveal their special adoption discount at the counter. Values will range from $5 off to free adoptions. This promotion runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 17. 

    Pets who have been at the shelter longer than 30 days and pets five years or older automatically come with a $0 adoption fee. Right now, PACC has 363 puppies and dogs and 91 kittens and cats on campus.

    Anyone interested in adopting a pet can stop by the shelter at 4000 N. Silverbell Rd. or visit PACC’s website. The adoption price covers a microchip, spay or neuter surgery, and up-to-date vaccinations.
