The Humane Society of Southern Arizona has stepped in to relieve overcrowding at Pima County's animal shelter. On Sunday and Monday, the HSSA pulled a total of 50 dogs and cats from Pima Animal Care.

The county's animal shelter has been dealing with overcrowding problems for some time now. It's turning to a tent city to help, and voters could clear the way for a new shelter by approving a bond issue in November.

Among the pets HSSA took in was a tiny, solo, orphaned neonate kitten barely a few days old. Shelter workers put her with a mother cat rescued Monday whose kittens are now old enough to eat on their own.  The mother cat was able to provide milk for the orphan kitten, and she also took on another kitten that was not her own.

Starting Wednesday, April 2, from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m., the Humane Society of Southern Arizona will have adoptions every day at the PetSmart at Broadway and Pantano. For other locations, visit http://www.hssaz.org or call (520) 327-6088.
