Pima Animal Care Center Gets Grant for Foster Program

Spring Point Partners is awarding Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) a $150,000 grant. The funds will be dedicated to further expanding the shelter’s foster program, creating a system to reduce pets’ length of stay in the shelter and get them into foster and adoptive homes more quickly.

The grant was donated to Friends of Pima Animal Care Center, PACC’s official nonprofit partner. With the funds, Friends of PACC will hire a program manager to oversee the intake-to-foster program. They will aim to send most pets to foster homes within 72 hours of arriving at PACC and will work to increase the number of volunteers who help make the foster program a success.

Funds also will be used to cover foster supplies, training support, medical care for foster pets, and more.
