The Pima Animal Care Center is asking for the community to adopt or foster pets as more than a dozen animals were taken in this week, on top of the 600 animals the center is already caring for.

PACC says more than a dozen dogs were surrendered by their owner, who was recently evicted from their home.

As Pima County's only open-admission shelter, PACC never turns away a pet in need, which creates a constant influx of stray and unwanted pets coming through its doors.

To manage more than 600 animals, shelter officials try to connect pet owners with the resources they need to keep their pets. However, in cases like these, it's sometimes not doable.

PACC says the 15 newly taken-in dogs appear to be some sort of shepherd mix, and they range in age from puppies to adults. Veterinarians are waiting for the dogs to put on some weight, then they can be spayed and neutered and put up for adoption.

If you would like to help these pets or PACC's other homeless dogs and cats, email or visit PACC in person at 4000 North Silverbell Road.
