UPDATE FOR ALL SHELTER VISITORS: Effective Wednesday, August 4 - Masks will be required for all employees and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, inside all county buildings. This aligns with the CDC and ADHS guidance which recommends mask use for all people in public indoor settings in areas of substantial and high transmission of COVID-19 and its variants.

PLEASE NOTE:  For the health and safety of your pets and ours, personal pets are NOT permitted inside the County shelter.

Shelter UpdateCHANGE IN SERVICES AND HOURS – EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Effective today, January 14, MCACC will be reducing the services offered and hours of operation at both our Durango and East Shelter locations due to the dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases in our community that unfortunately has also impacted our staffing levels. Both facilities will be open to the public for adoptions only from 1PM to 5PM daily until further notice. We remain committed to the animals in our care and need to shift our limited resources to our shelter pets. Our Customer Service Call Center will still be available for general questions, licensing assistance, etc. during their normal business hours of 8AM to 5PM daily and are available by phone: 602-506-7387 or email: CallCenter@Maricopa.Gov. MCACC will continue reevaluating our staffing situation and will provide any updates to our services and hours at that time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding and support as we continue to work through these challenging times. 


$25 adoption fee for all adoptable pets

Includes spay/neuter, licensing fee, microchip, and vaccinations.

Adoptions are currently offered seven days a week and at our West and East Shelter. Location and hours.
We have suspended dog-to-dog introductions until further notice. 

*Please note: Our East Shelter location currently has only dogs available for adoption. You can search what pets are available by visiting the adoptable pets website and use the top right search function by typing in "East". See example below.

Make the most of your visit - follow these steps in advance:

  1. Check out our available pets online. Our population changes every few minutes, so for best results, check the website an hour before coming in to view current animal availability.
  2. Write down the A# for the animal(s) you want to meet. To maximize our life saving efforts and ensure animals spend as little time as possible at the shelter, we cannot hold any pets. Please review all requirements and recommendations on the pets you have selected. For instance, some dogs require that the entire family be present for a meet and greet, or no small pets in the home.
  3. Review our additional adoption information and options below. There are several ways to bring a shelter pet into your family and these resources will help you to find your perfect fit.
