Recurring Donations

Recurring Donations for MCACC

Thank you for investing in the welfare of your community’s homeless animals. Maricopa County Animal Care and Control takes in close to 30,000 lost, stray, injured and relinquished animals – mostly dogs – every year at its two animal care centers in Phoenix and Mesa. As a special revenue department, the shelters receive little direct taxpayer support (less than 8 percent in Fiscal Year 2020) for the care, comfort and rehoming of the animals and relies on grants, fees and community support to make up the difference. We truly appreciate your support.
