TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Carnation is a special 4-year-old Staffordshire terrier mix. She was brought into Pima Animal Care Center as a stray in January.

Carnation is a fun girl but is starting to get depressed at the shelter. She is being treated for valley fever, which is not contagious and easy to manage with daily medication. Carnation is also deaf, but she picks up hand signals. 

Carnation's adoption fees have been waived. 

Throughout the month of April, you have the chance to win free or discounted adoption fees on all PACC pets. When completing a pets adoption paperwork, you can choose an egg from the Easter basket which holds special discounts inside. Receive $5, $10, $15 or more off your adoption fees.

If you'd like to meet Carnation, email PACC at pacc.foster@pima.gov. PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
