PACC takes in 58 pets from hoarding case

TUCSON – Pima Animal Care Center took in 57 cats and a dog involved in a hoarding case, the shelter said Friday.

According to the shelter, officers called PACC late Thursday night to assist with the removal of dozens of cats in a home near Valencia and Houghton roads.

Tucson Police Department is investigating the incident.

PACC says “the conditions inside the home were poor, with animal waste and trash all over the floor. Litterboxes were full of waste. There was no visible water left out for the pets. The home also had no electricity. The dog was in the backyard. There was no water for him in the area.”

PACC’s clinic team says the cats are suffering from upper respiratory infections. However, the animals are still undergoing medical evaluation.

The dog “has some matted fur,” but appears to be in good condition.

The shelter will provide an update to when the pets become available for adoption.

Currently, PACC has 1,421 other animals in need of homes. They say they could use the community’s immediate help.

People can help by adopting or fostering existing pets. Those interested in fostering can stop by the shelter or send an email to PACC.foster@pima.gov.

If want to adopt a pet can look at them online or visit them in person at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
