    • a photo

    • your name and phone number

    • an offer of a reward, if desired

Found Pets: Dog With ID

If the dog appears to be 3 months or older and has some form of visible identification (county license tag, owner ID tag, etc.), contact the owner or take it to one of the following locations:

  • MCACC-West (2500 S. 27th Ave, Phoenix)

  • MCCAC-East (2630 W. Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa)

  • AZ Humane Society (9226 N 13th Ave., Phoenix)

    Found Pets: Dog Without ID

    If the dog appears to be 3 months or older and has no identification, by law it must be impounded at a county animal control facility:

  • MCACC-West (2500 S. 27th Ave, Phoenix)

  • MCCAC-East (2630 W. Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa)

  • PCACC (1150 S Eleven Mile Corner Rd, Casa Grande)

    If the dog is younger than 3 months, it may be taken to one of these facilities or the AZ Humane Society (9226 N 13th Ave., Phoenix).

    Found Pets: Cats

    If the cat has no visible identification, there are several options:

  • Take it to a local veterinary clinic or rescue to see if the cat has a microchip. The organization will not be able to shelter the cat until the owner is found, but it can provide the microchip number and a phone number to contact the chip's registry.

  • Post an ad on one of the lost pet websites listed above.

  • Hang posters in the neighborhood where the cat was found.

  • Take it to the AZ Humane Society (9226 N 13th Ave., Phoenix)

  • Take it to one of the county animal control facilities listed above; note that MCACC charges $96 to accept a stray cat.
