TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) is taking part in an "Empty the Shelter" challenge.

The $100K Challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country compete to break their own records saving the lives of animals

PACC was selected as one of those shelters and is competing for a total of $600,000 in prize grants.

PACC needs help from the Southern Arizona community to meet their goals and win the 2014 ASPCA competition.

The goal is to get 5,000 pets adopted from June through August.

PACC and KGUN9 have teamed up up again and will feature at least one friendly pet that is up for adoption each day.

The PACC shelter is located at 4000 North Silverbell Road.

Today's featured animals:

  • Taz: a handsome dude whose form indicates he is friendly and playful. Heenjoys head rubs and petting, but ia not enjoying the shelter. He needs a patient home!
  • Davey Jones: ID#A486874 is months old, and has recently had his eye removed and is healing nicely! He is a little shy, but has a big puppy heart!
  • Ears: ID#A476618 is about two years old, and is a great lap dog, he prefers a home with older kids and a secure yard, even better to be inside on the couch with you!
