People who adopt any dog over the age of 5 years from the Pima Animal Care Center this month will only have to pay the license fee of $15.

Most mature animals are less work than younger animals — they’re housebroken and they’re less rambunctious.

Tucson Cold Wet Noses is paying for a blood panel, dentistry and spay or neuter surgery, as well as some other medical needs — basic, immediate care — for older rescue dogs.

The county-run shelter is open seven days a week — noon-7 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. It’s at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.

These photos and descriptions of animals up for adoption at the Pima Animal Care Center are submitted by PACC Pets, a volunteer group.

Be sure to take the pet ID number listed with the animal if you go to PACC to see a particular cat or dog.
