It was the middle of Tucson’s sweltering hot summer when one of PACC’s Animal Care Officers went to rescue JoJo, who weighed a whopping 29 pounds, from outside an apartment complex where he had been abandoned.
The obese cat was lethargic, panting and in obvious distress.
The officer brought JoJo back to PACC and right into the ICU. The donations from the Friends of PACC meant that one of the shelter’s veterinarians, Dr. Sarah Rios, could immediately give the overheated feline emergency care. She and her technicians worked to administer IV fluids, give him a cooling shave, and provide watchful, supportive care for several days while JoJo regained his health.
After JoJo health was stable, he went into foster care. He regained strength, lost weight and soon found a loving family.
Monetary donations to the Friends of PACC will be used where the shelter’s pets need them the most. If you wish to make an in-kind gift of supplies to help the pets of Pima Animal Care Center, we suggest you look at the shelter’s Amazon Wish List: . Shelter staffers update the list weekly to reflect the pets’ most pressing needs, and your donations will be shipped right to the shelter’s doors.
