Since July 1, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) shelters have averaged an intake of 121 animals per day and the agency is asking the public for assistance. MCACC will extend its Dog Days of Summer adoption promotion through Sept. 30 in the hopes of finding homes for shelter pets.

All dogs (any age) are $20, kittens (under 6 month of age) are $20 and the adoption fee has been waived for cats over six months.

The adoption special is available at the West Valley Animal Care Center, 2500 S. 27th Ave. For more information about MCACC, visit
