    Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) will host a three-day adoption event at four area PetSmart stores as part of PetSmart Charities® National Adoption Weekend May 13 – 15. 

    The offsite adoption event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, with adoption fees waived for all pets who are at least 6 months old. Younger pets will have an adoption fee of just $50. All PACC adoptions include your new pet’s spay or neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit, too. A standard $16 dog licensing fee applies to all adult dogs.

    This event was made possible by a $3,250 grant from PetSmart Charities, and the shelter’s goal is to adopt out 65 pets from the offsite locations over the weekend. 

    PACC adoption event“In April alone, we took in more than 1,500 pets, and we’re gearing up for summer, which is our most challenging time of the year,” said Justin Gallick, PACC’s director of community engagement. “We’re incredibly grateful that PetSmart Charities is helping us this weekend, and we hope you will come out to adopt.”

    Join the fun and find PACC dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., May 13-15, at:
    • PetSmart at Oracle & Wetmore 
    • PetSmart at Grant & Swan 
    • PetSmart at El Con Mall, between Home Depot and Target 
    • PetSmart at Irvington & I-19 
    PACC will also honor the free adoption special at its shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Rd. all weekend long. For more information and to see the adoptable pets, visit PACC’s webpage
