    PACC dog walkStart the new year off making new friends at Pima Animal Care Center’s community dog walk Jan. 1, and stay for a special free speed-adoption party following the walk.

    The dog walk kicks off at 10 a.m. at PACC’s shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road and will continue until noon. Community members must be over the age of 16 to walk a dog on their own. Kids, ages 11-15, can also participate by co-walking a dog with an adult. Interested dog walkers must register through PACC’s website by Wednesday, Dec. 30. 

    “We love it when our community comes out to support our pets,” said Karen Hollish, PACC’s director of development and marketing. “Pima County residents never let our pets down on the holidays, and our walks are always so much fun.”

    Pima Animal Care’s new year celebration continues after the walk with a special adoption event until 3 p.m. offering free adoptions on all pets. This all-inclusive offer includes each pet’s spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and a free vet visit, too. A $16 licensing fee will apply to all adult dogs.

    In addition to the Jan. 1 festivities, PACC will extend the celebration through the end of the month with $20.16 adoption fees for all dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. They will honor these reduced fees at the shelter and all four offsite PetSmart locations
