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.
