People love pets. They’re cute, cuddly, and fun! But having a pet involves much more than just love. There’s a huge commitment involved; pets need food and water, medical care, and lots of attention. Unfortunately, with all of these responsibilities, many people find that they are in over their heads. The result is a large number of unwanted pets. That’s where Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (Phoenix, Arizona 85009) comes in. MCACC does what it does because over 55,000 animals in Maricopa County need it each year. MCACC strives to take care of animals and to be proactive and offer programs to prevent problems before they occur. For example, Maricopa County’s Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) helps reduce the unwanted pet population through the spaying and neutering of cats and dogs.

MCACC’s mission is to promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of people and pets in Maricopa County. MCACC is an open-admission animal shelter. As such, it takes in more than 50,000 dogs and cats each year. Some may be ill or injured. Others may have behavioral issues or be aggressive. MCACC receives pets from people who can no longer care for them, and pets that are no longer wanted. MCACC receives many perfectly healthy dogs and cats that just need a new home.

MCACC believes it is not the animals fault for being at the shelter. It wants every healthy, treatable, and manageable animal to get a second chance at love.

MCACC’s goal is to save the lives of all healthy, treatable, and manageable dogs and cats in the community. To reach that goal, MCACC works with local animal welfare partners in Alliance for Companion Animals and the Maricopa County Maddie’s Project. MCACC is fortunate to have the support of FACC’s (Friends of Animal Care and Control), fundraising on its behalf.
