TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima Animal Care Center, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and Royal Automotive are teaming up to for a "Dog Days of Summer" adoption event. 

“We’re looking forward to another great turn out,” said Todd Helmick, Royal Automotive Community Relations Director, in a news release. “Since the program began seven years ago, we have helped over 240 dogs find new homes.” 

There will be ready-to-adopt dogs from both PACC and HSSA at the MINI of Tucson dealership (4635 E. 22nd Street) on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Adoption fees will waived thanks to the Tucson Auto Dealer Group, adopters will only pay the dogs' licensing fees. 

In addition to the adoption event, there will be a donation drive for both PACC and HSSA. There will be donation boxes at every Royal Automotive and Lexus of Tucson location, so the public can drop off new or used dog toys, old blankets and unwrapped treats. 

MINI of Tucson will also have a free Hot Dog BBQ during the event. 

For more information, visit the official “MINI of Tucson” Facebook page or the official website at www.minioftucson.com.
