TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Supervisors unanimously passed a measure to build a temporary addition to the Pima Animal Care Center to address overcrowding at the shelter.

Shelter managers were asking for $400,000 to build a tent to house the overflow pets.

The measure passed, 5-0.

Dog and animal lovers nearly filled the County Chambers just to make sure the board was aware of the community support for the measure.

Many of the people who showed up to speak are volunteers at PACC who clean kennels, walk the dogs and give county taxpayers more than 20,000 hours of volunteer time annually.

Under the measure passed this morning, the county will erect a 100' by 60' tent to house 100 kennels. It will be heated, cooled and tied down to protect against summer monsoon storms.

The board pointed out that this is only a temporary measure.
