The Pima Animal Care Center needs the public's help in adopting out dogs at its shelter.

According to PACC, the shelter has 438 dogs and puppies on site today. 

Our summer intake spike came later than usual this year, said PACC Director of Animal Services Kristen Auerbach. The volume of animals is tough for us, but means a great selection of puppies, dogs, cats and kittens for our fosters and adopters. Whatever kind of pet you’re looking for, chances are you’ll find it at PACC now.

PACC is open seven days a week for foster and adopter drop-ins.

From Sept. 14-17, PACC is celebrating PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend. Adoption fees will be waived for all dogs and cats four months and up.

If you can’t adopt, now is the time that foster is truly lifesaving, said Auerbach. We need people to foster adult dogs and cats for any amount of time and we have several foster options including field trips, overnight visits and long term placement.

All adopted pets will come spayed or neutered, with vaccinations, a microchip, and a free vet visit.
