The County shelter is bracing for their second busiest day of the year with the number of animals lost because of fireworks, July 5th being their busiest.
Legally, MCACC must hold a stray for 72 hours. That means Friday or Saturday your dog could be adopted out to someone else. Take action if your dog is lost.
If you lost your dog it is best to go to the shelter to not only report the dog missing but to walk the kennels to see if they are already here. Please bring a current picture of your dog that MCACC can upload into their online lost/found map.
For folks who cannot make it in, the “lost and found” line is (602)372-4598. You can report your missing dog or report if you found a dog. You can also email a picture and MCACC will post on their online lost/found map.
MCACC field officers will scan for microchips in the field and return those dogs ASAP to avoid crowding up the kennels. Last year alone, officers managed to return 1135 dogs directly in the field. Those dogs never had to set foot in the shelter and went straight home.
To prevent a severe capacity situation, MCACC is offering adoptions at 50% off starting today (1/2) through Sunday. (1/6). These are the dogs that have been here at the shelter 72 hours or more. Note, that is three days from pick up to adoption, if your pet is lost you need to act NOW! Dogs that have been here 30 days or more can be adopted for $25.
