The busy season has started for Pima Animal Care Center with several dogs to a kennel.

Staff is asking community members to become first-time foster parents to senior pets, who are the least demanding, easiest to care for and most loving.

Foster parents free up kennel space and give pets time to reenergize and become more appealing to adopters when they return, according to the media release from PACC.

To become a foster parent, visit PACC’s shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, between noon and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday or 10 a.m. to  5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

A shelter staff member can help you meet your match, and you’ll get to take the pet home that same day.

PACC provides all medical supplies, should pets need medications and veterinary care at PACC’s campus.

Foster placements can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
