TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona will waive all adoption fees for its dogs through Sunday.

Shelter officials say all dogs of any age, size or breed will only cost potential families $16 for the Pima County licensing fee.

Approximately 250 dogs and puppies are under the HSSA's care but cannot be moved to the adoption kennels due to lack of space. 

"It's a tough thing to continuously ask for the public's help in adopting out these pets," HSSA Public Relations Lead Samantha Esquivel stated in a news release. "Yet, our shelter remains proactive and hopeful that we will get these pets into good homes."
