The Pima Animal Care Center said Monday that they have no kennel space for incoming dogs.

According to Karen Hollish with PACC, they have taken in 488 dogs and 268 cats since May 1. The shelter is in desperate need of adopters and fosters.

We have hundreds of adoptable dogs and cats sitting in kennels and cages waiting for families, and other pets, like orphaned puppies and kittens, who simply need a temporary foster home in order to survive, said Karen Hollish, PACC director of development and marketing. The situation at PACC is increasingly dire, as there is not one single space to put an incoming dog right now.

PACC will be offering free adoptions for all adult dogs (age 6 months and up) through Sunday, May 21. All dogs come spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and with a vet visit voucher too. Adopters will only be required to pay a $17 dog license fee.
