TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima Animal Care Center is looking for fosters for the larger dogs currently housed in the clinic. Some with special needs.

Right now, PACC has a lot of diabetic dogs who need some love.

Fosters would help give dogs insulin shots and work on dieting, with the help of the center.

Some other dogs just need a quiet place to spend the last bit of time they have left.

"And then we do also have a need for what we call fospice, it's foster hospice cases, so some of these dogs just - they might have just a few weeks - and we just don't want them to spend the last few weeks in a kennel. We would rather have them in a home with someone who can give them a nice and very comfortable last end of their life," said Nicki Reck, spokesperson for PACC.
