Adoptable Dog

In order to clear some space at the shelter, the Pima Animal Care Center is offering a “name your own price” adoption event through Sunday. There are roughly 700 animals under PACC’s care: 431 dogs, 243 cats and 26 other animals like birds and rabbits.

The special starts today and will run through Sunday, Sept. 2. The price you choose will cover your potential pet’s spay/neuter surgery, a microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations, and a free vet visit. There is a $19 licensing fee for dogs.

If you don’t have the time to commit to adopting a dog, there is also an option to foster. You can do it for a few months, a few weeks or even just a few hours. To start that process, send an email to with the subject line “interested in fostering.” You can also visit the foster webpage at

The shelter is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. or 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
