Maricopa County Animal Care and Control happily accepts monetary and in‑kind donations. All donations go directly to the care of the animals in our shelters and the programs that support their health and well-being. Donations are accepted at our shelter locations, through the mail or online. If you have any questions about donations, or would like to know how you can leave a legacy for our shelter animals, please call Ben Swan at 602-506-3471, or email him at Ben.Swan@Maricopa.gov. Donations made to your community shelter are tax deductible as long as they are given for public purposes and not used for the payment of licenses or fees.
