The Pima Animal Care Center is bringing in a new program that aims to get more dogs out of their kennels to interact with other dogs in the shelter.

The PACC pooch playgroup program will center around dogs who are 30 pounds or heavier since they are typically the ones who stay in the shelter for longer periods of times.
PACC staff will pair groups of dogs into playgroups depending on different factors, for example, playful dogs will go together and older dogs will go together.
The national organization, Dogs Playing for Life, will be visiting PACC on Friday, October 5 to train staff on how to properly run playgroups.
