TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Southern Arizona has another chance to adopt a shelter pet for free next weekend. 

Thanks to a $3,250 grant from PetSmart Charities, Pima Animal Care Center is hosting a three-day adoption event as part of the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend. The goal is to adopt out 65 animals from the offsite locations. 

From May 13 to 15 PACC is offering adoptions at four PetSmart stores, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the following locations: 

  • PetSmart at Oracle & Wetmore 
  • PetSmart at Grant & Swan 
  • PetSmart at El Con Mall, between Home Depot and Target 
  • PetSmart at Irvington & I-19 

Adoption fees will be waived for pets six months and older, while younger pets will be available for only $50.  All adoptions cover spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, microchipping and a free vet visit.  The standard $16 licensing fee will still apply to adult dogs.  

"In April alone, we took in more than 1,500 pets, and we’re gearing up for summer, which is our most challenging time of the year," said Justin Gallick, PACC’s director of community engagement, in a recent release. "We’re incredibly grateful that PetSmart Charities is helping us this weekend, and we hope you will come out to adopt."

PACC will also honor the free adoption special at its shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Rd. that same weekend. For more information and to see the adoptable pets, click here for dogs and here for cats
