Dogs from the Pima Animal Care Center will be out and about at various events this month.
Adoptable dogs will be at Tucson Meet Yourself downtown from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday-Sunday near the Pima County tent in front of the Joel D. Valdez Library, 101 N. Stone Ave.
PACC dogs will also be at the SAHBA Home Show the following weekend. The show takes place at the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S Church Ave., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 18-20.
People who attend Tucson Meet Yourself or the home show can pick up a coupon for $20 off the adoption fee, good at either event or as a rain check if they’d like to go by the shelter to see all the pets available.
Finally, on the last Saturday of the month, Oct. 26, dogs will be at the Foothills Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cats won’t be at the events as they don’t travel as well as dogs, according to the animal shelter, but there are plenty at the shelter to choose from.
Through the end of the year, shelter animals — no matter their breed or size, or if they’re adults or puppies or kittens — will be $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, it’s free to adopt.
The county-run shelter, at 4000 N. Silverbell Road, is open seven days a week — noon-7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, except the last Sunday of the month, when it’s closed for deep cleaning.
