  • Euthanasia List

    Effective December 22, 2022, Pima Animal Care Center is releasing a euthanasia list detailing the dogs currently at risk of being put down due to space.

    A crowded shelter creates a more stressful environment for pets and people which can impact shelter safety and increase the likelihood for the spread of infectious disease. In addition, the inability to sufficiently isolate sick dogs, such as in the case of PACC’s recent strep zoo outbreak, puts dogs at high risk of contracting illnesses.

    The dogs on the euthanasia list have been identified as dogs that require more resources to be able to place in an appropriate home. While typically PACC would have the resources to find homes for these dogs, given the current capacity crisis, these dogs are now at risk. While the dogs on the list will not be immediately euthanized, these will be the dogs that are euthanized if the shelter’s census is not sharply reduced over the next few days.

    The list will remain active and updated as needed while PACC’s dog census is at critical capacity. The euthanasia list can be found on PACC’s website. All of the dogs on the list are available for immediate adoption, foster, or rescue. Dangler urges the public to remember that adopting or fostering any dog from the shelter will relieve space and stress concerns and can potentially save a dog’s life.
