Our center has increased adoption rates and upgraded facilities to become a model for shelters throughout the region.”

Paws and Claws will offer waived pet adoption fees to help families find and adopt a new pet. Those who adopt will also receive vouchers for free vaccinations, microchipping, a heartworm test (dogs only) and flea/tick treatment (dogs only).

The event is taking place Saturday, Aug. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Apache Junction Paws and Claws Care Center located at 725 E. Baseline, Apache Junction, AZ.
