Tucson, Arizona 2021-11-26 20:00:00 –
Tucson (KVOA)-The Pima Animal Care Center is in desperate need of a trainer or recruiter. The shelter is open daily in 1 to 3 kennels, but accepts up to 100 pets daily.
The shelter has been overcrowded since June.
“There are still dogs in the lobby. There are also dogs in the meet and greet room. These areas are not designed for kennel space, but a lifetime to find creative ways to save lives. I’m doing my best because I’m working hard, “said Nikki Wreck, a PACC spokeswoman.
According to Wreck, shelter intake is currently very high and had to deal with some hoarding cases as well as the number of stray pets from the monsoon. In addition to this, the number of adoptions is stagnant.
“We’re not out of the room, but we’re out of a comfortable room,” she said.
Some of this is also related to pandemics. According to Wreck, owners have to surrender their pets because they lose their jobs and homes.
To help move some dogs out of the shelter, PACC is offering some promotions this weekend.
CJ Lopez used to have a shelter dog. He is looking for a dog to keep his French Bulldog companion.
“I’ve been looking for dogs for a while, and I go to the breeder’s website, and you see them like $ 800- $ 2000,” he said.
Instead, his Labrador Retriever puppy costs a small fee. Currently, most dogs in shelters are free. PACC has several promotions on holiday weekends, including Furry Friend Friday and Sofa Sunday.
Most dogs can be adopted for free, and if you’re not yet ready to commit to your enthusiastic friends, you can raise them. PACC nurtures everything you need.
