$13 for all pets on July 4 for a two-hour window at Pima Animal Careby Pima County News on Jul. 02, 2013, under Pima Animal Care Center, Pima County, Southern Arizona, Tucson
Our adoption center at 4000 N. Silverbell will be open for a two-hour window only, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The adoption fee, in honor of the original 13 colonies, includes vaccinations, microchip, and a spay/neuter surgery.
We also are still looking for a few volunteers to help with our Independence Day Dog Walk.
If you have an hour or two to take a stroll or a jog around scenic Silverbell Lake, we have a dog that would love to keep you company. The walk begins at 8 a.m.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming so we can have enough trained volunteers on hand. Participants must be at least 16 years of age. We also ask that you bring a picture ID to help us keep track of our pups and leashes!
If you have any spare blankets or towels, we can always put them to good use. Ditto with a few cans of dog or cat food.
Pima Animal Care Center would also like to take this time to remind folks that the squeals, flashes and booms of fireworks can be very frightening for animals.
Pima Animal Care Center recommends not sharing the experience with your pet if you’re going to see the fireworks. They’ll be more comfortable in familiar surroundings, with soothing music playing in the background.
Please make sure all outside gates are latched. And if your pet does happen to escape in a panic, make sure to check with our shelter, as well as with the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
Happy Independence Day!
