(BPT) - Your family is ready for a pet, so you head out to the local pet store. Within moments of walking into the shop, an energetic, sweet-eyed puppy steals your heart. You plunk down your money – possibly hundreds of dollars – and take him home, unaware that your new darling began his life in circumstances that most Americans would find horrifying, circumstances that will possibly cause him long-term health and psychological problems. He’s the product of a puppy mill.
Pima Animal Care Center’s cat room is getting crowded and county residents wanting to add a cat or kitten to their families can get their adoption fees waived by donating badly needed cat food and supplies.
Pima Animal Care Center has embarked upon a transformational journey to tend to the pets that come to the shelter for care.
Since its inception on May 17, a help desk also known as Support Options Solutions (S.O.S.) at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) has diverted 32 animals from being surrendered to the shelter. S.O.S is organized by No Kill Pima County (NKPC) and staffed by NKPC and PACC volunteers only 8-11 hours a week. The goal is to have it staffed during all open shelter hours. More volunteers are needed to reach this goal.
Rain or shine, nothing stops the committed dog-walking volunteers at the Humane Society of Southern from making sure each pet is properly exercised. Not even a little construction.
