TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Pima Animal Care Center says it has reached "critical capacity" at the shelter.
According to a Tweet, 764 dogs are in need of permanent homes or a pet foster.
Pima County says this is the highest census at the shelter since before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
By the end of the day, PACC will have around 80 dogs who won’t be immediately available for adoptions. We are in desperate need for kennels & are looking to clear around 50 today. You won’t be able to adopt or foster those dogs but we have 764 looking for a ticket out. 🎫 pic.twitter.com/qUzC9fz7wN— Pima Animal Care (@PimaAnimalCare) June 17, 2021
Currently, all adoption fees are being waived for pets that are older than four months.
