    To help, please call Development Director Karen Hollish at (520) 724-5984 or email us.

    As our community’s only open-admission animal shelter, Pima Animal Care Center takes in every lost, abandoned and ailing pet who comes to our doors. In fact, we cared for 24,000 pets last fiscal year, including those who came to us in abuse or neglect cases.

    Your support is making it possible for us to save more of their lives than ever before. See the corporate sponsors and charitible organizations helping us here.

    Donations to Pima County are tax deductible under Internal Revenue Code § 170(c)(1).

    Online Donations

    For your convenience, you can contribute online, through the mail, in person, or over the phone using a credit or debit card. We offer five funds, allowing you to steer your contribution to your top priorities.

    Wish List

    Perhaps you’re a groomer and you would like to help some of our furry friends look more presentable. Perhaps you wouldn’t mind picking up a second box of dog biscuits when you buy treats for your own buddy. It takes a lot of resources to care for animals that need our help, so anything you can contribute helps.   Donate to Pima Animal Care Center

    In fact, you can help without ever leaving your couch! It's that easy! Just check out our Amazon Wish List

    Consider making a gift in someone’s name to honor their contributions to the community over their lifetime or at special times in their lives, such as birthdays or holidays. And if you would like to add support for Pima Animal Care to your own legacy, we would be honored.

    Employee gift campaigns

    We would love to be considered when it’s time for your annual charity employee drives.

    Spay/neuter fund

    This fund helps in the battle against pet overpopulation. It provides the community with low-cost and free spay and neuter days throughout the year. Prevention is most important to solving the pet overpopulation problem.

    Medical fund

    Sadly, we sometimes receive animals that have been neglected, tortured, burned and battered. Also, we frequently receive animals that require surgery or special medical care that is outside our expertise. We have found that with proper medical attention, nurturing and care, these animals are able to become wonderful companions.

    Adoption fund

    Contributing to the Adoption Fund allows the Animal Care Center to offer special discounts to encourage interested owners to adopt some of the difficult to place pets.

    Outreach and education fund

    PACC has strong partnerships with local elementary and middle schools to teach students about responsible pet ownership. Your donations pay for supplies and materials to enhance the learning process for the students.

    General fund

    Keeping the facility sanitary and maintaining the operation is expensive. Donations made to this fund help staff keep animals healthy and comfortable.
