TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Pima Animal Care Center's annual Christmas in July adoption event, during which adoption fees are waived, will be held this weekend.

Dogs and cats will be available for only the $15 license fee on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The event begins at noon on Friday, lasting until 7 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

PACC will decorate the center as a winter wonderland and new pet owners can take a free picture with Santa and their new pet.

There are more than 1,000 animals in residence at the shelter, which is at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.

According to a press release from PACC, the shelter needs the public’s help in adopting out these animals and reducing the number of animals at the shelter.

PACC is also participating in the Rachel Ray ASPCA challenge to adopt more animals between the months of June and August than it did last year.

If PACC had the highest percentage of animals adopted within its division, it could receive $100,000.

As of now, PACC is in 7th place out of 10 shelters.

PACC is hoping the Christmas in July event will boost the center a few placements, closer to the grand prize.
