Animal Care.With an overcrowding crisis on its hands, the Pima County Animal Care Center is offering free adoptions for all puppies 6 months and older.
Since May 1, PACC has taken in 488 puppies and 268 "cat-o-nine-tails". With breeding season underway, various litters and puppies and kittens ought to have opening the sanctuary every day, effecting an urgent need for adopters and fosters, according to a release.
" The situation at PACC is increasingly dire, as there is not one single space to throw an incoming dog right now ," answered Karen Hollish, PACC's director of change and marketing.
Through May 21, approval rewards on puppies will be waived, with adopters merely having to pay a $17 permission fee. All puppies come spayed or neutered, microchipped, inoculated and with a voucher for a free veterinary visit.
For those who aren't ready to adopt but still want to help with the overcrowding, PACC is hosting a Puppy and Kitten Baby Shower from 8 to 10 a. m. Saturday at the sanctuary, 4000 N. Silverbell Road.

At the shower, PACC's foster coordinator, Ellie Beaubien, will have information tables and foster employments to make it simple for people to sign up.
Fosters aren't merely are necessary in order to puppies and kittens, but too for disabled domesticateds or puppies who just necessitate a break for kennel life. Foster categories who sign up Saturday will be able to make domesticateds home that same day.
All tourists will be provided with a light-colored breakfast and regional business Central Pet will have "baby registry" parts for sale that people can purchase and donate to the foster program.
PACC's goal is to recruit 100 new foster families, who Beaubien said the sanctuary calls now more than ever.
PACC is open for adoptions Monday through Friday from noon to 7 p. m. and from 10 a.m. to 5 p. m. on Saturday and Sunday.
