Tuesday's Tail - Meet Dr. Perry and Turk!

Dr. Perry! Dr. Perry!
Turk! Turk!
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It's Tuesday, and we've got TWO tails in the studio today.

Meet Dr. Perry and Turk!

The pair were just days old when they got to the Pima Animal Care Center in June, according to Karen Hollish, director of development and marketing at PACC. 

A foster parent helped them grow strong and healthy enough for adoption, and now they are waiting at PACC for a loving home.

They just need to be spayed and neutered.

Altered Tails, located at 225 E. Valencia Rd., is down by one staff veterinarian. 

They've been spaying and neutering at least 20 homeless pets a day for PACC at no cost.

They are also helping the community by offering free spays and neuters for pets who live in the zipcodes 85705, 85706, 85713 and 85746.

These are the zip codes from which PACC takes in the largest number of pets.

Dr. Perry’s ID# is A564136 (he has orange markings) and Turk’s ID# is A564132.

Last week’s Tuesday’s Tail, Sophie, was adopted.
