    The shelter didn’t forget about kitties. All “coffee-colored” cats may also be adopted for just $5. Puppies and kittens will have $50 adoption fees, and the $50 reservation fee cannot be waived for pets still on stray hold. A $20 licensing fee may apply. 

    “Find your new best friend for the price of a fancy cup of coffee,” said Monica Dangler, Director of Animal Services. 

    PACC is still taking in around 50 to 80 pets a day. Currently, PACC has 582 pets in search of foster or forever homes, and 920 pets in foster care that also need homes.

    Two events this weekend in PACC’s multipurpose room will offer special opportunities for anyone wishing to adopt or foster a pet:

    • A Long Stay Lounge will highlight some of the pets that have been at PACC for a while who keep getting overlooked, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 2,;
    • A Foster Fair will offer a chance to meet pets currently in foster care, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 3. People can also view additional foster pets at pima.gov/adopt.

    “There are so many great pets in PACC’s care that aren’t physically at the shelter thanks to our amazing foster community,” Dangler said. “We often know more about these pets because they are in a home setting. Check out the list!”

    Pima Animal Care Center is open Monday to Friday, noon to 7 p.m., and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. To see a list of available pets and services, head to pima.gov/animalcare.
