TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Those with Arizona Wildcat pride have the chance to adopt a pet for free at a Pima Animal Care Center event this weekend.

PACC and The University of Arizona Athletics Department are teaming up on Saturday, Sept. 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. for a photo op with Wilbur and Wilma Wildcat and UA Athletics Director Greg Byrne, and animal adoptions at the shelter at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.

Shelter officials said the Cats 4 PACC event will feature the opportunity for some attendees to leave with UA football or basketball game tickets, UA gear for the adopted pet and other giveaways.

Pet adoptions are free all weekend for those who show a UA CatCard ID or wear Wildcat gear.

A free light breakfast and coffee will also be offered.
