Pets for Vets
In recognition and appreciation of U.S. veterans' service to our country, Pinal County Animal Control and Care (PCACC)'s Pets for Vets program waives adoption fees for pets over 1 year of age. Adopters participating in the Pets for Vets program will be responsible for paying the $15 license fee for adopted dogs (no fee for cats). Veterans wishing to participate in the program are asked to provide verification of veteran, reservist or active duty status. The following documentation is accepted: Military ID, DD214 Military Discharge Certificate, Honorable Discharge Certificate, Letter from the U.S. Military Center in St. Louis or Letter from the Maryland Veterans Administration Service Program. Start your application online.
Not Finding the Right Pet?
Try looking on Home to Home. Home to Home is a direct-to-adopter tool for pet guardians looking to re-home their animal. Take a moment to fill out the Pinal Pet Request to receive email notifications when potential animals of your interest come into the shelter.
Rights of Animal Care & Control to Refuse Adoption
The Staff at Animal Care and Control hope that every adoption is successful. That is why we follow the procedures we do. We take it very seriously and ask for your patience while we go through the process together. If, for any reason, our staff does not believe that a successful adoption can take place, Animal Care and Control reserves the right to deny the adoption.
