TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Officials at Pima Animal Care Center have agreed to waive adoption fees for the nearly 600 available pets at the 2nd Annual Santa Adoption Party, Dec. 17 - 18. 

The event, held this Saturday, Dec. 17 and Sunday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at PACC's main campus (4000 North Silverbell Road).  

While all adoption fees will be waived, the $17 licensing fee still applies to dogs over three months old. 

"Adopting a pet is a gift that goes both ways. You’re not only bringing love to your life, you’re helping save a pet in need," PACC director of development and marketing, Karen Hollish, said in a recent PACC release. "We can’t thank TEP enough for supporting our shelter."

Tucson Electric Power and Friends of PACC helped make this second Santa Adoption Party possible.  Santa himself will be on hand to give out gifts to adopters and pose for those Christmas family portraits, which will be printed for free on site for adopters.  There will also be complimentary hot chocolate and cookies for all who attend.  As a special holiday bonus, every family that adopts a pet during the event will leave with a gift for their new best friend, such as toys or treats.  

Those not able to adopt are encouraged to donate an item from the PACC pets’ Wish List, such as pâté-style cat food, canned puppy food, or puppy and kitten formula for orphaned baby pets. The full wish list is on PACC’s donation webpage and you can give online via the shelter’s Amazon Wish List

As always, pets adopted will leave the shelter spayed or neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and with a free vet visit, too.
