TUCSON – Pima Animal Care Center almost reached capacity at the start of the coronavirus pandemic more than a month ago.
However, that is not happening now.
PACC and the Tucson Humane Society both say that the community has greatly improved both in terms of fostering and adoption.
The Humane Society told Tucson News 4 that their adoption rate has doubled from at present in 2019.
With more people staying at home, many need the companionship given by pets to get through this quarantine.
PACC says they keep fewer animals at their location than normal because of COVID 19.
The season of cats and puppies is also on the horizon which generally results in the entry of animals into local shelters.
So far, Southern Arizona has not reported cases of animals affected by the corona virus.
The CDC says the threat of animals contracting the disease from small humans and is not believed that pet owners can get COVID-19 from their pets.
