You can bring home a furry friend in time for the holidays if you go to the PACC911 & Aviano Community Pet Adoptathon on Saturday, Dec. 4.

Many animal rescue groups will be on site at this event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Aviano Community Park at 3975 E. Lockwood Drive. These groups will help match people with pets whose personalities are a good fit for them. All pets that will be at the gathering are spayed, neutered and vaccinated.

PACC911 brings together the many animal welfare organizations around Arizona to unite them and provide opportunities to work together to benefit animals. It hosts large outdoor adoption events, conducts ongoing fundraising, offers educational outreach and delivers medical care grants to help the parents of four-footed, furry friends with help covering veterinary care that is needed. PACC911 brought its Chuck Waggin’ Pet Food Pantry, a food bank helping low-income families keep their pets in their home, under its umbrella services. This pantry gives people needed pet food.

Since 2004 PACC911’s adoptathons have helped lead to more than 10,200 animals being placed in new family homes. To learn more, visit
