Every animal deserves a home. This time of year family is on our minds.  Adding a pet to your family is a big decision. Depending on your luck and the age of the pet you adopt, it is a rewarding commitment that lasts 10 to 15 years or more. Please consider adding the unconditional love of an animal to your family.

On Saturday, Dec. 15, from 10 a.m to 4 p.m, Pinal County Animal Care and Control will be hosting “Holiday Hounds and Christmas Kitties.” The event is being held at the Pet Club located at 1348 E. Florence Blvd. in Casa Grande. Adoptions will range from $15 to $65. All adoptions will include spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchips.

Pinal County Animal Care & Control has set up three angel trees for all the animals still in the shelter. The animals in the shelter are in need of new toys, blankets, treats, canned food and sponsorships for adoption.  Donations for the animals will be accepted at Pet Club in Casa Grande and at the shelter located at 1150 S. Eleven Mile Corner Road in Casa Grande.

At a Dec. 8 adoption event, Animal Care & Control was able to place 35 animals. Families or individuals adopted 13 dogs and eight cats. Six dogs and seven cats were released to rescue groups and one dog was returned to its rightful owner.

A donor who shares Animal Care & Control’s goal of controlling pet overpopulation and eliminating euthanasia made it possible for 18 animals to be spayed or neutered so they could be readied for adoption. The donor wishes to remain anonymous.

“We are grateful for the support of the community and for people who open their hearts and homes to shelter and rescued pets,” said Kaye Dickson, Director of Animal Care & Control. “Even if you can’t add a pet, if you share our passion for animals, please consider making a donation to help our shelter pets.”
