Pima Animal Care Center could use some holiday help | Community Spirit
“Our animals are well tended, but we’re always appreciative of monetary donations and donated items,” said shelter manager Justin Gallick in a recent news release.
It costs close to $15 a day to care for a single shelter animal; in 2011 PACC took in over 24,000 animals, with each animal staying a minimum of nine days at the shelter.
“This season is infused with the spirit of giving and charity, and we would be grateful for any assistance in fulfilling our mission to care for the animals,” said Gallick in the same news release.
Items the shelter runs low on and is in need of donations of.
- new or gently used collars and leashes,
- Kong toys of varied sizes,
- tasty treats for training (preferably moist or dehydrated treats),
- dog biscuits,
- dry and canned cat/kitten and dog/puppy food,
- scoopable or clay cat litter,
- puppy and kitten replacement milk (like KMR or Esbilac),
- pet shampoo,
- non-porous, preferably plastic cat toys that can be cleaned and reused
General Shelter needs:
- bottles of bleach,
- disinfectant wipes,
- hand sanitizer
- 4 to 8 quart galvanized buckets
- black and blue pens,
- spiral notebooks,
- staples/paperclips/binder clips,
- clip boards,
- colored construction paper
- other art and craft supplies
But the best gift of all is a home, stop by and see all the adoptable animals.
