The Pima Animal Care Center, which is overflowing with pets available for adoption, will be open holidays in November in addition to its regular hours.
The center, at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, will be open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Veterans Day (Nov. 11), Thanksgiving and Hanukkah (both Nov. 28) and Black Friday (Nov. 29).
On Veterans Day, the adoption fee will be waived for people who bring food or supplies to donate to veterans.
On Thanksgiving, there will be a dog walk from 8 to 11 a.m., and adopters can set their own price for adopting, according to a press release from the shelter. The same will be true of adoption prices on Black Friday.
Generally shelter animals are $60. That includes licensing fees for dogs, as well as vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery if needed.
If a pet has been at the shelter longer than two weeks, that pet will be free. Dogs older than 5 years are free with the $15 licensing cost.
The county-run shelter is open seven days a week. On nonholidays, hours are noon-7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, except the last Sunday of the month, when it closes for deep cleaning.
