TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pima Animal Care Center took in 72 cats from a hoarding case Thursday.

The cats were rescued from a home near West Oracle Jaynes Station Rd and North San Joaquin Ave.

Conditions inside the home were poor. PACC says the floor was littered with waste, litter, and trash.

The shelter is asking the public for help due to their recent increase in pets.

“We aren’t usually this full so early in the year,” said Kristen Hassen, Director of Animal Services. “It’s a combination of things like this hoarding case, the start of kitten season, and an outbreak of pet illnesses in the community.”

If you're able to help, PACC is seeking fosters and adopters as soon as possible.

The shelter is currently offering free adoptions for pets four months and up with a $20 licensing fee.
