Pima Animal Care Center is holding a “Midnight Muttness” event on July 19 at the shelter, located at 4000 N. Silverbell Rd. The shelter is offering waived adoptions on that day, from noon until midnight. Yes, midnight!
The summer months are the busiest at PACC, so the staff is looking to clear some kennels to make room for incoming pets. The shelter sees as many as 130 pets a day during the summer. People can help ease congestion by adopting or fostering. Those who are interesting in fostering can walk in and take a pet home that night.
There will be a DJ, food trucks, a bounce house, craft tables, and giveaways. Central Pet will be giving away free I.D. tags for every pet adopted that night. They will also be drawing for raffle baskets every hour and handing out food samples that are available at the store in PACC’s lobby.
For those who can’t adopt or foster, the shelter is always in need of donations. The shelter can take physical items or monetary donations can be made to Friends of PACC, the shelter’s official nonprofit partner.
All pets adopted from PACC will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. A $19 licensing fee will apply to dogs. PACC’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
