Maricopa County Animal Care and Control happily accepts monetary and in‑kind donations. All donations go directly to the care of the animals in our shelters and the programs that support their health and well-being. Donations are accepted at our shelter locations, through the mail or online. Donations made to your community shelter are tax deductible as long as they are given for public purposes and not used for the payment of licenses or fees.
In 2015, the Board of Supervisors authorized general funds for the express purpose of increasing clinic resources. Beyond this measure, all other shelter operations and services are funded solely from dog licensing, shelter fees, and donations.
