It's just a couple more weeks until the open house for the new Apache Junction Animal Control facility. The open house, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 8, will include pet adoptions for 50 percent off.
A group of citizens, in collaboration with Kuranda Dog Bed Company, are working to secure beds for the cats and dogs housed at the facility. But, according to a news release, while the shelter accepted a donated bed from the group, Apache Junction Animal Control is not soliciting or accepting donations for the project.
The facility is located at 725 E. Baseline Road and open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call (480) 983-4405 or (480) 982-8260. You can also view available pets online at http://www.facebook.com/ApacheJunctionAnimalControl or at www.ajcity.net.
