The Pima Animal Care Center is launching a volunteer program and are asking for more people to help out.

The PACC just hired a new volunteer coordinator who is hoping to spread more community awareness about the needs for the cats and dogs.

They are looking for volunteers to do a variety of things such as walk the dogs and cuddle the cats.

"They walk the dogs," volunteer Cathy Neuman said of the volunteers. "They cuddle the cats. They help clean. They help groom. They do off-site adoptions. They work in the lost and found department. They even help out with licensing and training."

If you are interested in volunteering, you can contact the Pima Animal Care Center for more information.

They also have nearly 100 dogs up for adoption.
