    Many wonderful animals find themselves at our adoption center through no fault of their own and yearn forPet adoptions the companionship of a family.
     
    The Pima Animal Care Center has pets of all breeds, sizes, shapes and colors, so we’re sure to have the animal that is on your wish list.

    There are many good reasons to consider a shelter pet.

    Aside from the fact you will give a worthy animal a loving home, our adoption center is a cost-effective and convenient option. When you bring your pet home, he or she will have a rabies vaccination and a valid license that’s good for a year. As part of our adoption fee, all of our animals are micro-chipped, as well as spayed or neutered.

    Mac, #515933

    Mac, #515933My name is Mac and I'm looking for a home. I am a large, very handsome cat that's only 2 1/2 years old. I was a bit of a night owl at my last home, so I would like to live with someone that will play with me during the day, so I will sleep at night. With attention, toys and patience I know I'll be a great cat. Please stop by to meet me.

    April, #525475Hi, I'm April a wonderfully, unique puppy with a big underbite. They say I am a 6 month old, boxer/australian shepherd mix.

    Interested in Fostering?

    Every year, Pima Animal Care Center rescue partners save thousands of at-risk pets, but they can’t do it without people like you who are willing to foster. When you foster, all pre-approved medical care is paid for, so fostering costs you nothing out-of-pocket except for basic pet supplies such as food, toys, etc. Plus, foster care is a temporary commitment (usually a couple months) that makes a permanent difference in a pet’s life! As a foster parent, you offer a place for the pet to stay until he’s adopted. You also agree to make him available for vet appointments and adoption events once he’s ready to find his forever home. If you decided that you just can’t imagine your life without your foster pet, you can always talk to your rescue group about adopting him yourself! Do you have questions? Are you ready to get started? Contact one of our rescue partners today! View all of our partnered groups.
