PACC takes in 14 Chihuahuas from a home

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON- The Pima Animal Care Center took in 14 Chihuahuas Wednesday.

According to Adam Ricci, Chief Animal Protection Officer at PACC, the dogs’ owner had a medical emergency. First responders contacted PACC after realizing how many dogs were in the home.

The man had 16 Chihuahuas.

“Family arrived on scene, willing to be able to care for two of them until the gentleman gets out of the hospital,” said Ricci.

14 dogs were taken to PACC.

Ricci said it was not a hoarding situation. He said, to his knowledge, the animals were not spayed or neutered. Ricci said that may have been why there were so many dogs of all ages.

“(At PACC) We have over 400 dogs. We have small dogs, medium dogs and big dogs. Whatever type of dog you are looking for, we have it,” he said. “We have the type of pet anybody in this community would be looking for. If they can, please come out. Come out and help us. We are pushing the limits of what our capacity is.”

The Chihuahuas will be up for adoption this weekend.

If you would like to donate, Ricci said PACC is always in need of cat and dog food. He said PACC also needs gently used or new towels and blankets.
