Puppy Love and Feline Fondness: Get Yourself A Pet for (Nearly) Free This Weekend

Posted By on Tue, Aug 15, 2017 at 12:20 PM

Meet Harley, a two-year-old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier. This weekend, she and all of the animals at the Pima Animal Care Center can be adopted with no adoption fee, as a part of PACC’s participation in the nationwide “Clear the Shelters” campaign.

Adoption fees will be waved Saturday, Aug 19, and Sunday, Aug. 20. The usual $18 licensing fee for adult dogs will apply, but what’s $18 for a new furry best friend? Not to mention that every adopted pet (all the time, not just for the weekend) comes spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and with a free vet visit.

Clear the Shelters, an event hosted by NBC and Telemundo-owned stations, has led to the adoption of over 73,000 pets since its expansion to the national level in 2015, 50,000 of which took place in 2016. Help break last year’s record by taking home one of the more than 650 pets at PACC that are waiting to meet you.

Look at available pets online or visit them in purr-son at the shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
