I want thank the staff at Pinal County Animal Control . We had to make the decision to have our beloved Sam put to sleep. He was 14 years old and in a lot of pain and unable to eat due to multiple med...ical issues . We took him there not knowing what to expect the staff was incredibly comforting and supportive during one of the hardest moments of our lives. Today, We received a card in the mail with a paw print from Sam included and while it brought us to tears it was also such a comfort and loving gesture . Thank you all so much - The Shepherd - Orvik Family 💗🐶🐾 See More

I adopted Missy a pit terrier mix this week. I stopped in on my lunch break on Thursday to look around, Friday to meet her and do the adoption and picked her up this morning. Everyone was excellent except the front desk staff. When I arrived on Thursday I was a bit nervous and excited, I guess I annoyed the girl because she was rolling her eyes at me while I was trying to tell her why I was there. Friday I came in to meet Missy and when I went in to discuss adopting her, the other receptionist just gave me attitude and kept telling me no I can’t adopt the dog because I asked to pick her up the next day. She just fought me the whole way. I understand they where having an adoption today but it’s so over crowded there you would think they would happily let any animal be adopted to a good home anytime! Missy had already been there since October. The lady finally let me talk to an adoption coordinator who gave me lots of information on Missy. I explained that I wanted to adopt her right then but needed to pick her up the next day. She gladly went ahead and did the adoption for me. I came back today to get Missy, I told the receptionist I was there to pick her up and showed her the adoption papers. She just looked at me like I was an idiot until someone else overheard and helped me.

All I can say is I am very happy I didn’t give up on the adoption because of the rude receptionists. They seemed annoyed by me the whole time and tried to be difficult but I wasn’t leaving without adopting Missy.

The adoption coordinator and kennel techs where all very friendly and helpful. I think you would help more animals if the front desk staff had better manners and a positive attitude. They are the first people you interact with when you walk in and set the tone for the experience people have.

Missy is home now! She is so sweet and a perfect fit for my whole family. Thanks to everyone there who made up for the cranky receptionists!!!!

I have to tell you all that I've only been physically at this facility 1 time way back in 1990's. I had requested from Arizona Dobie Rescue an adult, over 4 years old, female red Doberman with long and long tail and she had to like cats.

After 6 months of waiting, they called me and said that there was exactly what I wanted at Pinal County Pound in Casa Grande, AZ.

Well, I took 2 of my friends with me to check this possible new dog out! She had been found by hikers in the Arizona Desert all tangled up with a chain and full of jumping cactus and she had mammary glands hanging from her stomach which they told me she had probably been used as a breeder. She was so thin when they found her too.

After a few weeks she had put on weight and healed up from her physical damages from being chained up and abused in her previous life. Spiritually she had a long way to go per the staff there. She kept her tail tucked so tightly under herself she looked like she had no tail at all. After going into the kennel and sitting on the floor with her she came to me and crawled into my lap and laid her head on my shoulder and gave a sigh that let me know she was ready for a new home.

We took her to the cat section and she walked by all the cages and had no reaction to the hissing and spitting cats. We put a kitten on the floor (with close supervison) and it fluffed itself up and spat in her face and she did nothing at all and then turned toward me as if to say, "Well, have I passed the tests?"
She indeed did!

So, my new 5 year old RED Dobie with long ears and tail became mine! I named her Penny because she looked like a new shiny penny and her life would be happy for the rest of her life. It took 4 of us to get her into my station wagon and we had to actually bodily pick her up to do it! She did not want to go into a vehicle at all! NO WONDER!

Anyway, she lived until she was 9 years old and I loved her so much! She let my cats sleep on her, under her front legs, and even shared her food with them.
So, if you are looking for a dog that gets treated right after being taken to the pound, this place is super for caring for the ones who need that caring tender touch and love that helps them be a new pet for someone else.

I adopted my dog Diana from here. They were very helpful getting her chipped and set up to be spayed as soon as possible to get her to her new home soon. They honestly had a pretty reasonable cost con...sidering all that it covered, but on top of that they gave me a big bag of supplies; a blanket, lots of toys, some treats, a leash...basically everything you could need. I brought her home the next day after she was spayed and we've been inseparable since. She is such a good, loving dog. I'm glad she found me as I can't even imagine what I'd do without her now!

I have had many wonderful experiences here. Crystal at the adoption desk is such a nice woman. Sadly there are so many dogs at the facility that in order to make room, they have to be euthanized. This... is a painful reality check at how irresponsible and disposable the human race has become. Don't blame the employees here, they do a great job. It is up to us to open our hearts and homes to save a dog scheduled for euthanasia. Fostering is a great option. Rather than being an opinion behind a computer or phone, why don't we all as a society step up and take responsibility for those that don't have a voice. There is nothing more loyal or loving than a rescue pet. Contact a rescue group today and become a foster home. See More

Last Friday was one of the worst days in our lives, we had to bring our dog, Bella to PCAC to be put down for eternal rest. She was truly part of our family and shall be missed dearly, the staff there... treated us warmly as this had to be done. They understood our grief during this time and handle her with care. Today we received a card in the mail expressing the staff's sympathy for our loss. If we decide to obtain another pet we will come back to your facility, Thank You very much See More

Working with Pinal in the past, there facility is Pristine. Animals in there care are loved, cared for and maintained.

They are one of the best shelters in the state of Arizona. The team is kind, co...mpassionate, caring and understanding. Not only can everyone learn from them, but regardless of how full they are they still manage to hold onto the lives in there care as long as possible.

I cannot say enough about Pinal and all that work at the facility. If you are looking to adopt or even rescue, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. They stand behind each pet that leaves the facility, providing spay/neuters/ shots and chips.

People need to stop breeding, abandoning and being irresponsible. If there is a fighting ring, animal abuse, in your area please notify the shelter. Animals should never be hurt when in the care of humans.

To everyone at Pinal County including (ACO) thank you so much for caring about all of the lives you work with every day! You are a shelter that others can learn and take guidance from in a Country that appears to have so many disposable pets.

My most recent rescue was called Phoenix at the time but we renamed him Brutus. He was 3 years old when we adopted him and he had been on the E-list twice and was up for his third stay-of-execution. T...he facility workers had been working relentlessly with local rescues to get someone to hopefully come get him and foster him until he could find his forever home. We swooped in and grabbed him so there was no need for that but the staff knew him personally and a couple even walked him out to us. We had a meet and greet and decided to get him but he hadn't been fixed yet so the staff scheduled him to be fixed and in a couple days we picked him up from the vet. We've had him for a year and a half now and the only problem we've had with this little turkey is that he tried to eat a desert toad....should I blame that on the facility? No, I didn't check my yard during the rainy season...that was my fault and other than getting a little too hot and a very icky taste in his mouth there was nothing nor has there ever been anything wrong with this lab/pitbull mix who thinks he's a big lap dog. We love this facility and the way they work with the local rescues to save as many animals as possible. See More

Unlike a lot of the bad reviews here, I actually live here and used this facility. This facility is for the people of Pinal county and saves us a lot of money on spays and neuters. I took my dog there... today to be neutered. He is doing great and I appreciate that they have the Mash Vet come there. I have also adopted from Pinal county with no issues. Please, if you are looking for a pet, consider checking here. See More

I have been to Pinal County Animal Control on a hunt for a four legged companion and it is a wonderful facility full of kind and caring people. As a Pinal County native I'm proud that this place is to care for our animals. I have also in the past taken strays that have wandered into our acreage over the years and people were kind and I never felt like the dogs were in bad hands. One of them I even was able to follow up on. Keep up the good work PCAC!! Your locals love you! See More

I have been to this shelter numerous times and it is always clean. The dogs are well cared for and the staff truly cares about the dogs. They have gone above and beyond to help save lives. I have also... rescued many dogs and puppies from Pinal and have not once had a dog with any serious illness. See More

I've been to shelters in multiple states and this is by far the cleanest, friendliest, most hospitable for the dogs facility I've ever been to. They don't make money, they often lose money per each ad...option simply because they love each and every animal they come in contact with. See More

I adopted Dyna at the Superstition Harley-Davidson event about a year ago. She is just the sweetest girl ever. I really appreciate the effort this shelter has made to get animals adopted. Dyna has ...been healthy and happy every since we saw her in the pen with her siblings. She was well taken care of and ready to go home when we picked her out. See More
Let's check out the cats!!!
Show some Queensland LOVE!
Here is our Pet Of The Week! Meet our lovely Triste!!! (A180530) Triste came to us on June 6th, 2016. She is a little pocket pit with a huge amount of love! Don’t let her size fool you, she’s got some muscle to her and will take YOU for a walk! She loves being outside and getting her belly rubbed. She gives you sweet kisses and hugs with her short little legs and she is all around lovable! She’s a kennel staff favorite because she gets along with other shelter dogs quite well and she just sneaks her way into your heart with that adorable face of hers. She might need some adjustment to your home so please give her that decompression time and have patience with all the shelter dogs so that you may have a best friend for life! Since Triste is already spayed she is only $50.00! Thank you Dallas M. Pierce for taking these photos!

What did YOU do this weekend? We took about 20 dogs and some Pinal County employees out on a hike! Now we are still deciding on opening this up to the public as it would be GREAT for the dogs to get out and get some fresh air, but it's still a work in progress. If you attended feel free to add pictures below!

Brochacho A190806 has been at several events and has yet to meet his perfect someone! Hopefully today is the day! Come say hello to Brochacho and friends at PetSmart in Casa Grande! We are here from 10-3!
