TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An effort is underway to bring music to the ears of pets at Pima Animal Care Center.

Volunteers and supporters are now raising money to install a sound system to play gentle, soothing music throughout the shelter. They want to replace their old paging system with the sound system.

Animal workers say shelters can place a lot of stress on dogs and cats and several studies have shown the calming effect of music. A study in October 2012 by a researcher from Colorado State University showed that dogs in shelters are less likely to bark and more likely to sleep when classical music is playing.

This follows a drive by the PACC Partners to provide elevated shelter beds for every kennel.

To donate visit: www.paccpartners.org/donations

Or checks may be mailed to PACC Partners, 6820 E. Scarlett St., Tucson, AZ 85710.

    The Forest Service said Tuesday’s high winds, coupled with dry vegetation and low relative humidity – is a formula that can create massive wildfires. Like the Aspen Fire on Mt Lemmon that burned 84,000 acres in 2003.
