    Pets Available for Adoption

    Masks are required at the shelter. Potential adopters must wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times.

    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

    Also Available for Adoption

    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.

    PACC is open 7 days a week, (excluding some holidays.)

    Monday: noon to 7:00 p.m.
    Tuesday: noon to 7:00 p.m.
    Wednesday: noon to 7:00 p.m.

    For holiday schedule: Head to Pima Animal Care home page and look in the top righthand corner, or keep an eye on our social media pages!

    We look forward to seeing you!


    Meet a Pet in Foster

    1. Email with the following information:

      • Your full name
      • Phone number
      • 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.
