TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – Pima Animal Care Center is creating a color-coded plan to prioritize the urgency of its space problems.
The shelter has been operating in the orange and red zones since April this year, meaning adoptable pets had to be viewed in non-public areas.
The shelter is currently seeing an increase in intake, especially among medium to large dogs.
“At PACC, intake is up 15 percent month-over-month, while adoptions and transfers are down about 30 percent,” said Monica Dangler, director of Animal Services. “We start every day with just a few open kennels.”

According to PACC, the best ways to help the shelter stay in the Code Green category are:
- Adopt (Currently there is an adoption fee of $ 0 for all pets in the shelter. A license fee of $ 20 may apply.)
- support financially
- Hold on to stray pets that are running around the neighborhood
- Donate to the official non-profit partner of PACC, Friends of the Pima Animal Care Center
- Split PACC’s contributions Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,
All pets in the shelter are vaccinated, microchipped, and currently have an adoption fee of $ 0. This funding for adoption includes puppies and kittens. There is a license fee of $ 20 per dog adopted. The $ 50 reserve fee is not waived. The Pima Animal Care Center is open Monday through Friday from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
