Dozens of 'Fireworks Dogs' have shelter at capacity

TUCSON - In the past several hours, over 40 new dogs have been dropped off at the Pima Animal Care Center - likely pets that were scared off by fireworks last night.

Each year, dozens of dogs run away from their homes, in an occurrence so common that they have been dubbed, "Fireworks Dogs."

The center does not have the capacity to take new animals, and there will be no extensions on time to redeem pets, PACC states in a Facebook update.

PACC is also looking for rescue groups to hold the dogs and provide relief to the overcrowded center.
If you can provide a foster home for these dogs, contact Tiffany at AOA 520-245-4599 OR Terri 520-235-6309.

Below is a link to a list of dogs recently taken in by the center. Owners of these animals should head to the PACC Shelter at Silverbell Rd at Sweetwater Rd. to claim their pet immediately.
