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
, 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.
