Pima Animal Care Center, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, has a severe overcrowding problem right now. In an effort to reduce the number of critters in their care, PACC is waving adoption fees through the month of June.
Adoption fees for all adult animals at the Pima Animal Care Center are being waived for the remainder of June due to an unusually high number of animals being brought to the shelter. The Center took in more than 500 pets last week, sending the shelter’s total census to nearly 800 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. The shelter’s cat recovery room is nearly full and some kennels are housing three or more dogs.

“We are proud to be the only shelter in our community that will never turn away a pet in need, but our conditions have quickly become extremely crowded,” PACC’s Chief of Operations, Kristin Barney, said. “We hope our community will come forward to help by adopting one of our many deserving pets.”

Through the end of the month, all pets three-months-old and up will have no adoption fee. A $15 dog license fee will still apply. Puppies and kittens will have a $30 adoption fee. All PACC pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and they come with a free vet visit, too.

Shelter officials hope to make room in the shelter before the July 4 holiday weekend, when the shelter will take in dozens of pets who were frightened by fireworks.

The shelter is open from noon to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends. It is closed the last Sunday of each month for deep cleaning. You can see adoptable pets here: http://webcms.pima.gov/cms/one.aspx?portalId=169&pageId=991
