Humane society offering help to Pima Animal Care

This is Venus, a 7-month-old Shepherd mix and just one of 300 hundred adorable dogs and cats you can adopt during this weekend's spring-themed, free pet give-away at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. All pets have been microchipped, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and vetted, and come with a gift bag full of pet supplies, all at no cost to you.

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is opening up an emergency intake center to help the Pima Animal Care Center, as they have suspended animal intake.

Samantha Esquivel with the Humane Society tells KGUN9 that they have set up emergency accommodations at their location at 3465 E. Kleindale in order to accept cats and dogs in need of shelter.

Anyone bringing an animal to the Humane Society will have to pay the regular animal care fee.

The temporary intake center will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Humane Society can not accept any aggressive animals, and Pima Animal Care is still in charge of public safety.

Once the current crisis is over at Pima Animal Care, the Humane Society will continue working with them to ensure the best possible outcome for all the animals.

The Humane Society will also waive all adoption fees Thursday.
