Maricopa County Animal Care & Control, Phoenix, AZ

Stray dogs are held 3-5 days before they are put up for adoption or destroyed. Some of these dogs may have been claimed, rescued or euthanized. DO NOT phone the center to check whether your lost dog is there. Hundreds of dogs pass through the center every week. It is not possible for the staff to recognise your dog among the 150 dogs that are brought in every day. Visit the center everyday during their opening hours to check whether your dog has been brought in.

Some of the dogs brought into the centre are so good they deserve a second chance so are made available for adoption. You can see adoptable dogs here. Click on the photo for more information about the dog in need of a home.

New Hope Program
When Maricopa County Animal Care & Control say that a dog went to "New Hope" they mean it was put into their New Hope Program and passed to one of the 100+ rescue organizations that participate in this scheme. Read more about the New Hope Program in the Annual Report for 2013.

Through its New Hope Rescue Program in 2014, MCACC transferred 12,129 dogs and cats to other animal welfare and rescue organizations. More than 40 Chihuahuas were sent to rescue groups in other states where the small breed is in high demand.

Saving Paws Rescue AZ are one of the rescues involved in the New Hope program. Read about them in the MCACC Newsletter here.
