Pima County to vote today on temporary tents for PACC

PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today about $400,000 could go to the Pima Animal Care Center to help with overcrowding.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors will vote on it this morning and is expected to approve the plan. 

If approved the money will be used to build a tent like facility at PACC; it will increase the capacity by 100 kennels.

The shelter is in great need of the extra space, as PACC is adopting more pets than ever before, rather than euthanize them.

Over the last three months 72 percent of the dogs and cats at PACC were left alive.  The tent facility would be a temporary solution, as county officials look at building a new facility next door to the current center. 

The $22 million proposal is part of the postponed county bond package, but the bond election has been pushed back for another year. 

Today Pima County leaders are expected to approve the $400,000 to build the tents. They will meet this morning at 9 a.m.  

Stay with Tucson News Now for updates on the vote both on air and online.
