Pinal County Animal Control and Care (PCACC) is critically full nearly year-round. We need all the help we can get! Are you interested in giving a shelter pet a place to crash while they wait to be adopted? Are you experienced in caring for underage or pets in need of medical care? Are you looking to help socialize pets that don't do well in a shelter setting? Are you looking to help give a shelter animal a quick break from the shelter?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, please considered fostering a pet for us! PCACC makes fostering as easy as possible!

Pinal County Animal Care and Control is open seven days a week for walk in meet-and-greets with potential foster pets.

Citizens are welcome to tour our kennels and see animals available for foster in person.

Citizens can also browse online to see all available pets for foster before making trip to the shelter. Nearly all animals at the shelter are available for foster. See our available pets.

Social Media

Foster Family Form

Having trouble picking out a pet to foster? Fill out the Foster Family Form and staff will help match you with some potential fosters! Staff will reach back out to you in 24 to 48 hours with suggested pets, their information, history, and coordinate any meet-and-greets! 

Field Trips

Not looking for long-term commitments? The PCACC Field trip program may be for you! Citizens are allowed to sign out dogs for field trips to give them a quick break from the shelter, such as going out to grab a puppuccino, a stroll in a local park, an adventurous hike, or just hanging out in a home for a day!
