Dog walkers are a group of volunteers that walk dogs about 5 mornings a week. This keeps the animals socialized and ready for adoption. Since we started, we have noticed an incredible difference in the dogs/cats. Adoptions have increased by about 12 percent (from what we can tell). We walk about 160-200 dogs a day, and try to give everyone one whole can of dog food each, however, that is not always possible.

You may ask yourself what type of dog/puppy ends up at Pima Animal Care Center? Due to the economy the shelter is seeing purebred dogs (poodles, bassets, yorkies, great danes, rotties) all the way to mama was a beagle and daddy was a fence jumper! So, if you are looking for a great dog/cat check the shelter on Silverbell. Some pets are listed at petfinder.com, and some you just have to visit the shelter. Often there are not enough volunteers to take pictures so they don’t all get posted. Animals are healthy, come with a spay or neuter, microchip, license, current vaccinations, and a free vet check. This is all for about $50.00 although they often run specials.
