If you’ve been looking to expand your family with a new pet, you’re in luck: Pima Animal Care Center is offering a chance to bring a four-legged friend home sans adoption fee.   

As part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters drive, PACC is waiving adoption fees for pets adopted from July 30 to Aug. 18. Adult dogs will still require a $19 licensing fee.

The national adoption campaign, led by NBCUniversal owned television stations, has helped over 150,000 pets find homes since its launch in 2015. The drive comes at a time when the Tucson shelter is nearing capacity with over 700 pets, Shelter director Kristen Auerbach said in a press release.

You can meet these pets in person at the shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, or online. Adopted pets will come with one free vet visit, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered.
