The Maricopa County Animal Care and Control's shelters are both in "red zone" conditions, prompting a free adoption weekend this Saturday and Sunday.

According to Jose Santiago with MCACC, "red zone" conditions mean that the shelters are at critical capacity. 

The Arizona Animal Rescue Mission will be sponsoring free adoptions on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, meaning all adoption fees will be waived.
