    Why Give?

    We are Pima County’s only Donate to PACC!open-admissions shelter, taking in nearly 20,000 lost, homeless, and abandoned pets every year and serving thousands more in the community. Thanks to the generosity of our community, PACC saves more than 90% of the pets who enter the shelter. Your donations go directly to saving more lives and provide critical support to the pets who need it the most. 

    Here's how to donate:

    You can donate enrichment toys, treats, and other much-needed items through our Amazon Wish List to keep our shelter pets happy and healthy while they wait for new homes!

    You can make the greatest impact for animals at PACC by donating to our nonprofit partner, Friends of PACC.  Their programs allow us to provide a level of care above and beyond what we could otherwise provide by helping to save the most vulnerable pets in our community!  You can donate to Friends of PACC online, by check through the mail, or even by phone.  Check out all the ways you can donate by visiting Friends of PACC.

    You can also donate new or gently-used items by bringing them to PACC during open hours and depositing them in one of our donation bins located in front of the shelter.

    Our most-needed items include:
