PACC to host "Howling at the Moon' party, adoption event

Pima County Animal Care Center will hold “Howling at the Moon” from 5 - 10 p.m. on May 13, with staff decorating each section of the shelter in a different holiday theme for the events that were skipped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There will be no adoption fees for pets during the “postponed parties" event, though a $20 licensing fee may apply. All pets adopted during the event will go home with a surprise holiday-themed pet toy.

Monica Dangler, director of Animal Services, said this has been a long time coming.

“PACC has missed being able to hold those seasonal adoption events over the last two years, so we are ready to celebrate them all in one night,” said Dangler. “We know how much the public loves these evening events, so we are happy to be bringing them back.”

PACC’s licensing partner, Docupet, will also offer a 13% discount for all pet owners on one tag per order from May 13-16 with code “HOWL13”.

“Howling at the Moon” is free to attend and will feature activities in the holiday-themed rooms as well as vendors, food trucks, and a bouncy castle.

Pima Animal Care Center is located at 4000 North Silverbell Rd. and is open noon - 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

There are currently 650 pets at the shelter in need of homes, along with 1,124 pets in foster care in need of adoptive homes.
