Pima Animal Care Center cares for nearly 18,000 animals each year. The community’s only open-admission shelter, 90 percent of the animals leave to new homes or to local rescue groups. One of the biggest improvements since veterinarian Jennifer Wilcox arrived three years ago, along with increases in community donations and support, has been sizable increase in senior pets who find new homes, said Karen Hollish, PACC’s director of development and marketing.

Silver Fox

Silver Fox is a 10-year-old Shih Tzu Mix who was brought into Pima Animal Care Center as a stray in early March. PACC’s medical staff evaluated him right away and cleaned up his severely matted fur. Silver Fox also suffered from untreated glaucoma in his left eye, which the medical team removed to alleviate the pain. He’s recovering quite well and always has a vibrant attitude. His age doesn’t slow him down one bit, and he’d love to go home to a comfortable bed to snuggle up in.

Due to his age, Silver Fox is a member of the Silver Whiskers Club, which means his adoption fee is waived. All PACC pets go home fully vaccinated, microchipped, and with a free vet visit voucher. A standard $17 licensing fee applies to all adult dogs. His ID Number is A593632.

Birney

Birney is a Domestic Short Hair mix who was brought into PACC as a stray back in February. Believed to be about 12, he has a very laid back personality and loves to take naps in the sun. He is independent, but likes a head scratch every now and then. Birney is the perfect older gentleman to bring home.

Due to his length of stay at PACC, his adoption fees have been waived. All PACC pets go home fully vaccinated, microchipped, and with a free vet visit voucher. His ID number is A589723.

Carnation

Carnation is a 4-year-old Staffordshire Terrier Mix who was brought into PACC as a stray back in January. A fun, spunky girl, Carnation would love to go home with an active family. She is being treated for Valley Fever and will need an adopter committed to continuing her treatment. Valley Fever is not contagious and is easily manageable with daily medication. Carnation is also deaf, but volunteers note she picks up hand signals very quickly. Carnation is one special girl and is waiting for the perfect family to come her way.

Due to Carnation’s length of stay at PACC, her adoption fees have been waived. All PACC pets go home fully vaccinated, microchipped, and with a free vet visit voucher. A standard $17 licensing fee applies to all adult dogs. Her ID number is A589030.

Cream

Cream is a beautiful Siamese mix who came into PACC as one of hundreds of cats rescued from hoarding situations between January and February. Believed to be about 2 years old, Cream will need a quiet and patient home where she can learn to trust humans. She would do best in a calm environment due to the lack of socialization she received in her previous life. If you have the room in your heart to make this sweet kitty at home in your life, come down and meet her at PACC.

Due to Cream’s length of stay at PACC, her adoption fees have been waived. All PACC pets go home fully vaccinated, microchipped, and with a free vet visit voucher. Her ID number is A589761.
