For the month of December, Beading Divas to Rescue is thrilled to be fundraising for Friends of Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).
The Friends of Pima Animal Care Center is a project fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona. It exists solely to support the work done at the only shelter in Pima County that never turns away a pet in need.
There are many challenges that come with being Pima County’s only open-admission shelter. On an annual basis, PACC cares for more than 20,000 animals, including many who arrive ill, injured or abused. The shelter routinely reaches overflow conditions, and even with a much-needed new shelter approved by voters in November 2014, the needs often outstrip available resources – which is where community support makes a huge difference.
The Friends of PACC fills critical resource shortages that the county can’t fill.
Recent investments include the purchase of a dental x-ray machine, so that PACC’s vets can save the lives of senior pets and pets who suffered oral trauma; the purchase of long-acting pain medications, so that cats who undergo major surgeries recover in the most comfortable way; and the purchase of the most effective compounding de-wormer, so that all baby animals surrendered to PACC have the best chance of staying healthy and finding a forever home.
Stay tuned as we will be sharing stories for how Friends of PACC are helping the animals.
