Puppies and kittens are among the animals caged in overcrowded conditions at Pima Animal Care Center. Since July 1, nearly 1,040 dogs and cats have been turned in for sheltering, and 724 remain in the shelter needing a home, said Kim Janes, manager of the center during a news conference Wednesday. All cats and dogs are a flat $13 fee, with special needs animals free.
