To help safeguard the community and meet the needs of the animals that depend on us, we have implemented several modifications and temporary cancellations for a number of AHS services. Full details and most recent updates are available here.

Surrendering Your Pet

If alternative resources don’t address the situation you are experiencing with your pet, we will work with you to discuss surrendering options. An appointment is required to surrender your pet.

Surrendering Options

Found a Stray?

AHS accepts all stray dogs that are sick, injured or abused. We can not accept stray turn-ins at our Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion. You can attempt to reunite a healthy, lost dog with its owner or surrender the healthy stray to Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. Trap-Neuter-Return programs are the most humane and effective way to stabilize outdoor free-roaming cat populations. If you’ve found a litter of kittens, here’s what you should do next.
