FLORENCE – For the entire month of February, Pinal County Animal Care & Control is dropping the fee to adopt a dog to $55 and dropping the cat adoption fee to just $20.
“The decision to add a pet to your household should be carefully thought out but our shelter pets have so much love to share, we wanted to try a month long promotion,” said Animal Care & Control Director Kaye Dickson. “We also have to make temporary changes to our hours and days of operation, due to other outreach events and an injured staff person who required emergency surgery.”
The shelter will not be open on Saturdays in February but will instead stay open an extra hour each weekday. Pinal County Animal Care & Control will be open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
“Our kennel technicians will tend to the animals in the shelter throughout the weekend but sufficient staffing will not be available to open for the public,” Dickson said.
“I want people to know that we can make arrangements for lost or stray animals to be returned to their owners on the weekend,” Dickson emphasized. “All they need to do is call us on Friday and we’ll make a weekend appointment for a staff person to reunite them with their lost pet.”
Pinal County’s Adoption Center and Animal Control offices are at 1150 South Eleven Mile Corner.
Animal Control officers will host a rabies vaccination/licensing clinic in February in Florence on February 25 from 9 AM to 11 AM at the Florence Dog Park Mutt Show. The dog park is located at 200 East 8th Street.
