    2014 General Obligation Bond Program, Pima Animal Care Center - Substantially Complete

    For the latest on the constuction, see our Construction Progress page.

    Construction of the new Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) was completed in December 2017 and renovation of the old facility was completed in July 2018. A fence with controlled access vehicular gates was completed in December 2019, to secure the front of the facility when not open to the public, and to reduce the staffing demand for drop-offs prior to opening and after closing. PACC receives bulk food donations several times a year but did not have a dedicated facility to store the 100 or more pallets of food that are donated. A building located at the former Pima County Wastewater Reclamation site was identified as an option, but required improvements. The improvements were completed in the Spring of 2020 and included a HVAC system, upgraded power for the new HVAC system, insulating the building and a forklift for unloading/loading the pallets. Approximately $485,000 in bond proceeds remain. Additional improvements to the Silverbell Road Facility are being evaluated, as well as improving off-site services.
