In October, PACC has taken in 1,276 pets, including 921 dogs and 355 cats.
 
Adopted pets will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip, and a free vet visit. A $17 standard licensing fee will apply to all adult dogs. The adoption fee for puppies and kittens will remain at $50.
