Help put pets in loving homes

The Pima Animal Care Center is beyond capacity, forcing staff to house pets in nonpublic areas. Every day PACC takes in more pets than are getting adopted or fostered, but one day this week PACC took in 35 more pets than it could get out the door. You don’t have to be a math major to realize that’s not sustainable.

PACC Director Monica Dangler explains how you can help. Adopt, foster or hang on to a stray you may find. Studies show 86% of strays are found within walking distance of their homes.


Diane Frisch

Tourism director sees lots to discover in Southern Arizona

Fresh off the heels of the gem shows, and with several exciting events upcoming, Pima County is in the midst of a bustling tourism season.

Hi, I am Diane Frisch. As the director of the County’s Attractions and Tourism Office, I’m lucky to work with other County departments as well as Visit Tucson on tourism-related efforts. We also partner with many other outside organizations to market special events, target destination travel groups and support community organizations focused on tourism and increased residential use of our parks and open spaces.
