TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

If you've been thinking about adopting a new family member, now is the time to take the plunge.

With puppy and kitten season in full swing, the Pima Animal Care Center is bursting at the seams.

A employee said they really need dog adopters right now, so all adult dog (6 months and up) adoptions are free from now through Sunday, May 21. 

There is a $17 license fee.

Dogs have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and come with a veterinarian visit voucher.

Another way to help ease overcrowding at the shelter is to foster a pet.

There's a huge need right now for foster families for puppies, kittens, injured pets or animals that just need a break from the kennel, according to PACC.

PACC is also holding a "Puppy and Kitten Baby Shower" this Saturday, May 20, from 8 until 10 in the morning.

It will be at PACC, located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.

There are all sorts of opportunities available if you want to foster a pet.

It can be a longer-term fostering situation or only a day or two.

PACC said it provides any necessary medications and supplies.

    “While we’ve had success getting many dogs adopted out in recent months, we continue to receive numerous canines this summer and once again have a heightened need to find them homes as soon as possible,” says Arleen Garcia, animal control supervisor.
