Pima Animal Care Center moved nearly half the pets inside the center's tent to the main building. 

The humidity made it hard for the tent's swamp cooler to blow cool air.

"Because it is swamp, it is kind of challenging," said Jose Ocano, PACC's Executive Director. "It is very challenging to keep those temperatures where we would like them to be so we have done lots of things over the summer throughout the past several years to try and make this tent a suitable place for the animals."

American Ice Company also helped out by donating a truck bed full of ice to PACC.
