TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson-area animal shelters are teaming up to host a county-wide adoption event this weekend.

According to a Facebook event page, Pima Animal Care Center, Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, HOPE Animal Shelter, the Animal League of Green Valley, and Cherished Tails are among the groups participating.

“We are so excited to be a part of this event,” said Monica Dangler, Director of Animal Services at Pima Animal Care Center. “All of our organizations are dealing with extremely high intake right now, so we all decided that an adoption event like this could help all of us get some pets out in order to make room for those incoming cases.”

Thousands of pets will be up for adoption. The shelters hope to find homes for 400 animals.
