    Picture of dogsPima Animal Care Center is offering a “name your own price” adoption fee through the month of June on dogs four months and older and 30 pounds and up to help clear the shelter. PACC is in the middle of its busy puppy and kitten season and is taking in 50 to 100 pets every day.

    Adopting a large dog has a number of benefits. The big guys make are often very laid back and many are good with children. Big dogs also are generally easier to train and like nice, long walks, offering health benefits to both owners and four-legged friends.

    Those who aren’t able to adopt a pet permanently may wish to foster to help clear some kennel space. Short-term foster placement gives dogs a much-needed break to decompress from the stress of shelter life. People interested in fostering can sign up online.

    PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Rd. A $19 licensing fee will apply to dogs. All pets adopted from PACC will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. PACC’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
