Pima Animal Care Center is having a overcrowding problem. They have taken close to 180 animals in two days and the shelter is looking for help in the community to adopt or foster animals.
As of Thursday, June 14 the shelter had close to 350 dogs and over 250 cats.
“The situation at PACC is increasingly dire, as there is not one single space to put an incoming dog right now.” said PACC Director of Animal Services Kristen Auerbach.
PACC will be having a "Pet for Dad" adoption special, which will give community members the opportunity to name their own adoption fee for any pet. The special is running all weekend, through Father's Day, Sunday, June 17.
The pets will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and come with a vet visit voucher.
Dog licenses cost $18.
If you do not want to adopt, people can consider the option of fostering that does not come with
any time limits if you fall in love with our new furry friend. You can foster for a day, a week or a month.
For the fostering and adoption application you can go to PACCs website
To visit the shelter, business hours are noon to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekend.
