TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The weekend after the July 4 holiday was a pretty busy one for the intake workers at Pima Animal Care Center. Many cats and dogs will sometimes run away after being spooked by the loud sounds associated with the celebrations.

PACC says the days following the holiday can be busy with lost pets. They have seen nearly 140 stray cats and dogs dropped off at their intake area over the past three days.
