TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Pima Animal Care Center workers worked Saturday to get lost dogs back to their homes after getting spooked from 4th of July fireworks.

PACC reported at least double the normal amount of animals that they would normally take in.

People have found dogs all across town in the street or even in their front yards, according to animal shelter volunteers.

The animal shelter is extremely packed. It had 955 dogs and cats in the facility Saturday afternoon, according to PACC Chief of External Affairs, Kim Janes.

PACC and No Kill Pima County volunteers are working with people bringing in animals and trying to find options other than the animal shelter for dogs and cats. Even asking people to keep them at home for a day or two until the owner is found.

Volunteers ask people to file a found report if they do find a lost animal.
