The Pima Animal Care Center needs volunteers for a dog walk and cat cuddle at 8 a.m. on Memorial Day (Monday, May 27).

The adoption center is closed for the holiday, so volunteers ensure animals get plenty of exercise and attention. No experience is necessary and refreshments will be provided.

County officials say public service is a good way to honor veterans on Memorial Day.

The center is at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. Anyone who wishes to help is asked to RSVP to volunteer Jack Neuman at

Cans of dog or cat food are always appreciated, as are used blankets and towels. Feel free to bring slip leads or leashes.

An open house for people interested in becoming permanent volunteers is scheduled to follow the dog walk at 11 a.m.

 For more information, or a schedule of upcoming events, visit or contact volunteer coordinato, José Ocaño at 243-5920.
