PIMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Pima Animal Care Center is bringing back an adoption promotion after being on hold due to the pandemic.

The month-long series of promotions of 'Clear the Shelters' kicks off Aug. 23 ending Sep. 19., according to PACC. With the shelter at max capacity of large dogs, it is in need of adopters and fosters for those pets.

Every week during the month-long event, there will be a different adoption promotion that will be announced on social media every Monday.

“We are very excited to have this adoption event happening at PACC!” said Monica Dangler, Director of Animal Services. “This event couldn’t come at a better time with the shelter being so full.”
