 PIMA COUNTY – “Find the perfect holiday gift for you and your family at Pima Animal Care Center, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, during the third annual Santa Adoption Party happening from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 9-10.

Generous support from Tucson Electric Power and PACC’s nonprofit partner, the Friends of PACC, has made this event possible for third consecutive year. This year’s celebration will feature Santa himself who will give gifts to adopters and pose for family portraits, printed free onsite for adopters, and complimentary hot cocoa and cookies for all who attend. Every adoptive family will also leave with a gift for their new best friend, such as treats and toys.

The party also includes $20 adoption fees for all pets. As always, pets adopted will leave the shelter spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with a free vet visit, too. An additional $18 licensing fee will apply to adult dogs.

PACC will also have fostering opportunities available for folks not ready to take on a full-time pet commitment. Like adopters, foster parents will get to select the pet they want to take home and, in most cases, they can take them home the same day.

“Our mission this holiday season is to give our pets the opportunity to spend the holidays alongside a loving new family,” said PACC Director Kristen Auerbach. “Give the gift of love – adopt or foster a pet in need.”
