People who volunteer walking dogs at the Pima Animal Care Center will have an easier time of it soon.

On Oct. 18, employees of Sundt Construction will cut a ramp into the hill leading to Christopher Columbus Park behind the shelter, according to a news release from the county. The work will make it easier to access the park and meet compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Each Sundt project team selects a project to do to give back to the community. The Sundt team that is working on the Downtown Courts Complex selected Pima Animal Care for this year’s project, according to the press release.

The Sundt workers will also work on drainage to make sure rainwater doesn’t pond near the dog walking path, the press release said.

Volunteers are always needed at the shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road. If you’re interested in volunteering, fostering or adopting, check out the Pima Animal Care Center page on Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Pima-Animal-Care/366924590093854?fref=ts

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, except the last Sunday of the month, when it closed for deep cleaning.
