Please I used to volunteer there and it kills me to see all the posts of animals I left behind. Knowing that they get a HIGH POWERED HOSE in there kennel about once a day. And during there stay most never have a caring person hold them...love them. The only time they have human contact is during feeding time when they get a bowl thrown at them, and when the kind and loving and ever so caring dog walkers come and take them out of there cages. Most cages are to narrow for a large dog to lay horizontally! Or a mother to really streach out and feed her pups!! Not even the "beds" they provide fit horizontally!! Yeah very small cages, and they throw up to 3 dogs in each one. If there a small or medium breed it's up to 6 a kennel!! The beds they provide are solid HARD PLASTIC! That they spray down once a day! They really need A MAJOR MAKEOVER!! Please please help them! What really killed me was when they were to crouded and they had to find things wrong with the dogs, and I was the one taking them to U-bay or Euthanasia bay.....And looking a dog or puppy in the eyes and knowing that there journey was over, because "There was no room". I remember telling the dog or pup right before i put them in to the U-Kennel "It's okay don't be scared, it all gets better after the shot." I would bend over and give them the only hug that they ever had, in there life! Please don't let this happen, we can help and make sure that this NEVER NEVER happens to any dog or pup ever!! This shelter needs you!!The dogs are counting on you!! To them this sis not just a contest.......It's LIFE OR DEATH!
Pros: They have FAR more animals come thru there doors then any other shelter in Tucson!
Cons: They use a High Power Hose to clean kennels :(

We adopted a puppy from FAIR, an organization started by 2 PCAC employees who did not want to put down the animals that weren't adopted. Some of the employees do care, but their hands are tied.
Pros: Some of the staff truly love the animals
Cons: No support from city government, no funds
