    microchip signPima Animal Care Center is teaming up with the City of Tucson, Ward 3, to help pet owners in need of vaccines and microchips. The free clinic is on Oct. 26 at Donna Liggins Center, 2160 N. 6th Ave. It begins at 8 a.m. and continues until the first 300 pets have been served. 

    “The community wants these types of events,” said Director of Animal Services, Kristen Hassen-Auerbach. “We’ve seen huge turnouts at every vaccine and microchip clinic we have put together. Pet owners will often line up hours before they start.”

    PACC will be giving free rabies vaccines, DHPP/FRCP vaccines, microchips, flea/tick medicine, and dewormer. A licensed veterinarian will be administering the vaccines. There is no set limit on the number of pets a single family can bring. Dogs should be on leashes and cats need to be in carriers marked with the owner name, cat name, and owner phone number.

    “I’m excited to partner with PACC and the staff at the Donna Liggins Center to bring this free clinic to Ward 3,” said Council Member Paul Durham. “For the health of your pet and our community, I hope you’ll stop by and take advantage of the services PACC has put together.”

    The outreach is part of the shelter’s ongoing efforts to support pet ownership in the community. Last year, the shelter licensed 80,687 pets and provided a total of 2,650 free microchips to Pima County residents at 100 outreach events. 

    All pets adopted from PACC will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. PACC is open Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekend
