TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Always wanted to adopt a 'fur’ever friend from the Pima Animal Care Center, but the hours to look at pets just don’t mesh with yours? Don’t worry, PACC has you covered with its upcoming “Midnight Muttness” event.

Tonight those looking to adopt a dog or a cat will have that chance to check out the pets until midnight, yep midnight and their adoption fees will be waived!

Summer months are typically the busiest for PACC and they are looking to clear up kennel space for any incoming animals. According to PACC they see as many as 130 pets a day during the summer.

In addition to some cuddly and cute pets available for adoption, there will be a DJ, food trucks, a bounce house, craft tables and giveaways. Also on hand will be Central Pet, which will be giving away free ID tags for every pet adopted during 'Midnight Muttness'. Baskets will be raffled off every hour and free food samples will be available in the PACC lobby.

For those who aren’t able to adopt right now, PACC is in need of fosters, and if that is also not an option, PACC can always use donations.

The shelter can take physical items or monetary donations can be made to Friends of PACC, the shelter’s official nonprofit partner.

All pets adopted at PACC (4000 North Silverbell Road) will come spayed/neutered, with age appropriate vaccinations, a microchip and a free vet visit. There will be a $19 licensing fee for dogs.

PACC’s normal business hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 7 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.
