Animal Care & Control

We are a county animal care and rabies control facility that services communities of Pinal County. Pinal County Animal Care and Control (PCACC) strives to continue to be a humane lifesaving operation, that provides quality care for homeless animals while servicing the public, keeping communities educated, and ensuring the safety of people and animals in Pinal County.

PCACC sees anywhere from 3,000 to 5,500 animals come into the shelter year-round. The shelter can comfortably house about 140 dogs but is typically overcrowded and houses double to triple capacity year-round. Since 2015, Director Audra Michael had a vision for an animal care facility rather than a high-kill dog pound. We have been progressing and bettering our shelter ever since! In 2018, PCACC accomplished one of our biggest and most challenging goals. With a live release rate of 92.7%, PCACC became not only the largest but also the only open-admission shelter in Pinal County to be No-Kill. To put things in perspective, PCACC had a live release of 23.4% in 2010. In 2021, our live release rate increased to 97.4%. With the shelter accomplishing its biggest feat, the team is now shifting focus on providing quality care and enrichment to our furry shelter guests and helping the community of pet owners!
