"We are the only open-admissions shelter in Pima County which means we rely on our community of adopters and fosters to help us save lives during these critical moments."

PACC says interested adopters and fosters can visit the shelter during open hours and pick out one of the available pets. "Whatever pet you’re looking for, we can help you find it. We really need help to get these wonderful pets homes,” said Auerbach.

In addition, The shelter is having an adoption event called Pumpkin Patch Adoptions at the end of the month.

PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
