Tuscon – There’s another adoption promotion happening at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC). Adopters can buy “Take Me Home” Kits at the store in the adoption lobby at PACC in order to get a $0 “O’Doption” price. The kits will vary depending on the pet. For dogs, adopters will buy a collar and leash, and for cats they can get a carrier in order to get that reduced price.
“We love the idea of these kits,’” said, Monica Dangler, Interim Director of Animal Services. “Our lobby store has everything you need to take your new pet or foster home.”
As a reminder, all dogs in Pima County must be leashed when in public areas, and that leash should not exceed six feet. Keeping a cat in a carrier when transporting it to a vet appointment or grooming session is the best way to keep them safe.
“Sometimes it takes a new pet a little time to adjust to their new home and accidents can happen where they sneak out the door,” Dangler said. “The ID tag is the perfect way for a neighbor to easily identify where your pets belong should they accidentally get lost.”
Potential adopters can make an appointment to adopt a specific pet or to browse the kennels or the store at pima.gov/animalcare. This promotion will not include kittens or puppies. They will still be $50 each. There is also a $20 licensing fee per adopted dog that cannot be waived.
PACC’s hours are Monday-Friday, noon to 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The store in PACC’s lobby is open any time the shelter is open. Central Pet runs the retail location each day in addition to the select animal care that they help provide at PACC. As an added bonus, 50% of each sale at the shop goes directly to Friends of PACC, the shelter’s official nonprofit partner.
