During this season, when many are reflecting upon their blessings, Pima Animal Care Center would like to express its deepest gratitude for the community’s support in helping us find more animals homes. none

From the July 1 start of the fiscal year until the last day of October, our adoption center has adopted out more than 2,400 pets. In that same time last year, that number was roughly 1,960. That’s another 439 pets finding homes, or an increase of 22 percent.

The rescue community deserves a huge round of thanks as well for giving more than 1,800 animals so far this fiscal year another chance at health and training. That’s up from 1,500 at this time last year.

In all, we’ve been able to save more animals. In fact, nearly 1,400 more animals to date have been saved over last year at this time. That’s a lot of whiskers.

“We know there is more work to do and we are coming up with new and creative improvements every day,” said Kim Janes, manager of Pima Animal Care Center. “What we have learned is that we do not have to accept that the problem of homeless pets is an insurmountable problem. We can make things better and that’s why this remains an exciting time for us and for the community.”

The community is invited to share in our thanks. We will be hosting a community dog walk and cat cuddle on Thanksgiving morning from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. to make sure our animals get a chance to socialize and play. Please RSVP to by Nov. 26.

We’ll be hosting adoption drives on Thanksgiving and Black Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as well. Set your own adoption fee!
