TUCSON, Ariz. — The Pima Animal Care Center has sent out a message asking for some to take in dogs so they can know “a loving family”.

The message comes as Pima Animal Care Center is in the process of rescuing the last 25 dogs from a man who owned guard dog business. Today, they took in six of those 25.

Pima Animal Care Center said on Facebook that the dogs need immediate adopters or fosters, and that some of the dogs are seniors.

The first dogs rescued were from November of last year, where 70 dogs were kept to be trained as guard dogs by a community member who could no longer care for them. The dogs were rented out to protect property and kept in kennels, per Pima Animal Care Center.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting a dog, please call (520) 724-5900 visit their Facebook page or stop by their facility.

They are located at 4000 N Silverbell Rd, Tucson, AZ 85745 and are opened 12:00-7:00 on weekdays, and 10:00-5:00 on weekends.
