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.
