    Pets Available for Adoption

    Information on pets available for adoption is updated every 15 minutes and is no guarantee that a pet will still be available when you arrive.

    If you don't see the type of pet you are looking for, check out local rehoming sites like Adopt-A-Pet

    If you see a pet on our website that is on a stray hold and you are interested in adopting him/her, you can reserve that pet for a $50 non-refundable fee. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis and can only be done in person. 

    Here is a FREE adoption coupon for any PACC pet! (A licensing fee may apply. This coupon also doesn't apply to reservation fees.)

    Also Available for Adoption

    This list includes up to 20 dogs that PACC staff have identified and believe would be a good fit in a variety of homes. Dogs on the list have done well with other dogs while at the shelter. In addition, staff believe these dogs would be capable of doing well in many situations, whether that be adoptive homes, foster homes, or with a rescue organization.

    Working cats aren't technically pets, but we occasionally have them at our shelter. The cats in our Working Cat Program are those who are unable to be handled or are not suited to life in a traditional home. They will roam your yard, warehouse, barn, or property, helping you with your local rodent population. They are not social with people, preferring to keep humans at a safe distance. Working cat adoptions are done by appointment only. Click the link above for more details.

    These clinics have agreed to offer one free or low-cost visit to their office within a certain number of days.

    1. Email PACC.adoptafoster@pima.gov with the following information:

      • Your full name

      • Animal ID number(s) of the animal(s) you are interested in
    2. You will be contacted by our foster team or the foster parent of the animal.

      • Inquiries are answered in the order in which they arrive.
      • Puppies, kittens, small dogs, and pure breeds tend to get a lot of interest, so there may be a bit of a wait on requests for those.
