The Pima Animal Care Center is looking for community members willing to temporarily take in large dogs during the summer months.
According to a media release from PACC, animal intake numbers skyrocket from June - August, leaving the shelter's staff scrambling for adequate housing.
Many dogs share kennels with limited space to move around, staff open additional rooms to house animals in pop-up crates, and the explosive surplus of animals entering the facility every day becomes difficult for staff and volunteers to manage, Director Kristen Auerbach said.
As of Monday morning, PACC has 417 dogs in its shelter.
