TUCSON, Ariz. — Time to hit the road!

The Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) will relieve overcrowding at its shelters by taking about a dozen dogs to a pet sanctuary in Utah.

The dogs will be moved Wednesday morning.

The sanctuary is home to 1,600 homeless animals.

PACC's nonprofit partner, Friends of PACC, is paying for the trip. PACC hopes to create a transport program and schedule future trips as the shelter starts to get crowded, which is normal as the months warm up.

However, you can help with overcrowding, by adopting or fostering pets. Those interested, can sign up online or visit the shelter in person.

Through the end of April, PACC is waiving adoption fees for all "Volunteer Favorites."

PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, open Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

Each year, PACC cares for 17,000 pets.
