Pima Animal Care Center cat

Party in final days of the Rachael Ray 100K Challenge. This weekend is the last chance for adoptions to count toward the Challenge.

Pima Animal Care Center is extending hours on August, 29,30, and 31 as it invites the community to come and find a new family member. All summer long PACC has been competing with 49 of the nation's other top animal shelters for $100,000 in the ASPCA Rachael Ray 100K Challenge and this weekend is the final push.

Join PACC, located at 4000 N. Silverbell, for a special three-day Cat's Pajamas Adoption Party. All adoptions will be free and there are lots prizes to be given away (for adopting families) as well as special activities:

-Friday, August 29, bring the kids and read to a pet during storytime from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday hours of operation at 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

-Saturday, August 30, enjoy free breakfast (and adoptions) from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and catch a movie in the courtyard from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

-Sunday, August 31, this final day of the Challenge features free adoptions and gifts during special extended hours of operation from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Community members are encouraged to join into the "staying up late" theme by wearing some comfy pajamas to the shelter (staff and volunteers will be attired in pajamas too). If you or someone you know is looking to add love, fun and happiness of a new pet, now is the time to adopt at Pima Animal Care. PACC is saving more lives than ever before - you can join in by adopting a pet today.
