Presented by Beltone – A leader in audience health care.
The Pima Animal Care Center is hosting a big party at the shelter on September 19 to close their “Clear the Shelters” effort and thank the community for their help during this summer’s space crisis. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the shelter, located at 4000 North Silverbell Road, and will feature food trucks, giveaways and more! Prizes will include cat trees, kennels, toys, treats, etc.
“We wanted to thank Pima County for their help when we released the SOS earlier this summer,” said Monica Dangler, director of animal services. “Thanks to adopters and foster families, we were able to take pets out of places like meeting and reception rooms. We still have a long way to go to feel comfortable, but we think it’s important to celebrate even small wins!
The PACC is always grappling with an abundance of large dogs and often starts the day with only two or three kennels available before the shelter opens the doors for the day. This increase in the number of large dogs is caused by a combination of several reasons including healthy stray animals brought directly to the shelter when found, increased calls for Pet Support, dogs who prefer to be alone in the kennel and an influx of animals that are part of Animal Welfare Services investigations.
The shelter offers an adoption promotion in the hope of freeing up more space. All animals in the shelter currently have an adoption fee of $ 0 until September 19, which includes puppies and kittens. There is a license fee of $ 20 per adopted dog. The $ 50 reserve fee will not be waived. For those who cannot adopt full-time, there is also the option of adopting a pet. Those interested in a host family can register here and then come to the shelter to bring a pet home. People who want to help a pet and its family can become Safety Net Fosters.
“The great thing about the Safety Net Home Program is that you can help a pet owner in crisis while they’re working there,” Dangler said. “You feed their pet until they can get back on their feet and their pet comes home. It’s a great way to help and we think it might be more needed as this pandemic spreads towards the end of the year. “
PACC’s official non-profit partner, Friends of Pima Animal Care Center, will be hosting a clothing sale at the event on September 19. Clothing was provided by Buffalo Exchange and all clothing items cost only $ 1 each. Friends of PACC also offers PACC-themed clothing year-round in their Threadless store here.
The Pima Animal Care Center is open Monday to Friday from noon to 7:00 p.m. and from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. To see a list of available pets and services, visit pima.gov/animalcare.
