PACC looking for volunteers for July 4th walk/cuddle event

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Pima Animal Care Center is holding a dog walk/cat cuddle for the Fourth of July. 

Volunteers are needed to walk dogs and cuddle cats, families are welcome to attend, but dog walkers need to be 16 years or older to officially walk the dog.  Those interested in volunteering should RSVP by Wednesday, July 2 to Andrew.stocker@pima.gov 

The event is taking place on Friday, July 4 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., according to a recent release from PACC (4000 N. Silverbell Road, Tucson). Immediately following the walk/cuddle event there will be a volunteer open house starting at 10:15 a.m.   

Donations of towels and canned dog food are also welcomed, if not able to attend the walk/cuddle. 

While there will be no adoptions on July 4, volunteers who find a forever friend can let PACC workers know and they will 'reserve' the animal for adoption on July 5, during regular business hours.
