Pima County Animal Care Center: Thanks, Tucson, for opening your homes and hearts to our Monsoon Mutts!by Pima County News on May. 21, 2013, under Health, Pima Animal Care Center, Pima County, Southern Arizona, Tucson
Pima Animal Care Center thanks the community for making our annual adoption event, Monsoon Muttness, such a success.
During the Saturday event, 96 pets were adopted and another 27 went home through rescue organizations, for a grand total of 123 in a single day.
It was the largest adoption event of the fiscal year ending June 30, and the third-largest in recent history, only following the initial launch of Monsoon Muttness 11 years ago and just behind last year’s 139.
We couldn’t do the work we do without our dedicated volunteers or our compassionate and devoted rescue partners – or without our customers, who know there are great pets of all shapes, sizes, colors and ages that need new homes.
For those who missed the adoption event, there are plenty of great pets still available. In fact, dozens of new animals come in every day. Plus, as an added bonus as we work to save 12,000 animals this fiscal year, we have reduced our adoption fee to $12 until June 30.
Come visit our Silverbell adoption center to see if your new family member is waiting.
