If you find a stray animal, you are welcome to bring them to our Adoption Center to be scanned for a microchip. If a chip is found, we will work with you to contact the owners on record. If no chip is found, we suggest posting flyers in the area that the animal was found. Also post on Facebook and other social media, including the Summit County Lost & Found Pets page on Facebook, and the lost and found pets area on Craigslist. Post where the animal was found and a photo if possible. Try to keep some details private to use as questions when someone tries to claim the animal.

Adopting a pet from the Pet Adoption and Protection Center is a low cost, personally satisfying alternative to purchasing a pet from a pet store. Our dogs and cats make good pets and reward their rescuers with lifelong loyalty and affection.

Adoption fees help us to cover some of the cost of care for our pets. Did you know that we deworm, administer core vaccines and flea treat every adoptable pet? The adoption fee also covers the pet’s spay or neuter surgery, microchip and registration, and 30-45 days of pet health insurance (if you provide us with your email address). Some pets also receive special veterinary care, rabies vaccines and dog licenses!The Matchmakers at the Adoption Centers at Bideawee have been matching pets with people for more than 114 years! Every Matchmaker knows the personalities and needs of each animal in our care. When you come in to any one of our locations, our Matchmakers will help make the very best match for your lifestyle so you and your pet can enjoy a lifelong journey together.
Our adoption fees range from $0 to $150. Upon entry at our shelters, most dogs are given a 4-in-1 vaccination, Bordetella vaccination and flea/tick treatment. Adopted dogs ages three months of age and older also receive a rabies vaccination and County dog license/tag as part of their adoption fee. Cat s receive a 3-in-1 vaccination when they arrive at our shelters (cats are not required to be rabies vaccinated or licensed in Maricopa County).

All animals adopted from Maricopa County Animal Care & Control must be spayed or neutered prior to leaving the shelter. If the cat or dog you adopt has not yet been altered, he/she may need to stay an extra day or two for surgery.

In recognition and appreciation of U.S. veterans' service to our country, MCACC's Pets and Vets program waives adoption fees for select pets adopted by veterans. Adopters participating in the Pets and Vets program will be responsible for paying the $17 license fee for adopted dogs (there is no fee for cats). Veterans wishing to participate in the Pets and Vets program are asked to provide verification of veteran, reservist or active duty status. We will accept the following verification documents: Military ID, DD214 Military Discharge Certificate, Honorable Discharge Certificate, Letter for the U.S. Military Center in St. Louis or Letter from the Maryland Veterans Administration Service Program.


Our shelters take in nearly 100 animals every single day. If you are looking for a specific breed or type of animal, it is best to visit our shelters in person. Once you've found a pet you'd like to adopt, our staff and volunteers will ask you to spend some time in one of our Get Acquainted areas with your potential pet. If it's a match, you'll be asked to complete an adoption application and a short questionnaire. You do not need to be an Arizona resident to adopt from MCACC, but you must complete the adoption in person and we are unable to provide transportation for your newly adopted dog or cat. Did you know you can view our available pets online? The St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center is an Open Admissions Shelter, which means that we accept authorized stray animals regardless of their adoptability. Owner-relinquished pets are individually assessed based on current shelter resources at the time of surrender.. All stray dogs and cats are required by law to be held for a minimum of five business days, and 10 business days if the animal has identification. Once that legal hold time has been satisfied, we make all healthy, behaviorally sound animals available for adoption.
