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

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







    Since completion of the new facility in 2017, and the opening of the second phase in 2018, Pima County has utilized the remaining bond proceeds to continue to improve the facility to support PACC’s services to the community. The largest of the improvements was converting two temporary parking areas to paved areas, since they have been highly utilized since the opening of the new facility. The larger of the parking lots has been used for free drive-through microchip events and low-cost veterinarian partnership services.

    PACC has always sought to improve access to their services in areas of Pima County farther from the west side facility, such as the City of South Tucson, eastern Tucson, and the rural areas and the numerous small towns of Pima County. A mobile adoption vehicle is being procured which will allow PACC to expand their outreach efforts and bring their animals to these areas to increase their adoptions. This will expand PACC’s visibility and presence within Pima County and help to reduce the barrier of transportation distance. The vehicle will also support PACC’s presence at community events.
