Pets in need of a home before the holidays

PIMA COUNTY – Pima Animal Care Center is offering several adoption promotions throughout the month of November.

The first is happening during PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend, Nov. 9-11. PACC is waiving adoption fees for pets four months and older at three local PetSmart stores.

This event starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. at the following locations:

  • PetSmart at Oracle & Wetmore
  • PetSmart at El Con Mall, between Home Depot and Target
  • PetSmart at Irvington & I-19

In honor of our nation’s veterans, PACC is also going to offer free pet adoptions to members of the Military. Starting Nov. 9 and continuing through Nov. 12, military members will just need to present a valid military ID to get the discount.

The shelter will have special hours on Monday for Veterans Day, opening at noon and closing at 5 p.m. PACC is closed on Thanksgiving, but open on Black Friday, noon-5 p.m. There will be a “Black Fur Day” discount offered that day. Adoption fees will be waived for any pet with black fur, ages four months and up.

For all of these promotions, a $19 licensing fee will apply to dogs. All pets adopted from PACC will come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. People who are interested in adopting a pet can look for them online or visit them in person at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. PACC’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday, noon-7 p.m. or 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
