    Pima Animal Care CenterStarting July 1, 2017, Pima Animal Care Center will no longer provide animal care services to residents of Marana and Sahuarita. Town residents must contact their municipal animal care divisions for all animal related inquiries. 

    Earlier this year, the towns of Marana and Sahuarita opted out of their intergovernmental agreements with Pima County for the animal care services provided by PACC. Since then, both jurisdictions have established their own animal care services and contracted with the Humane Society of Southern Arizona to house their communities’ homeless pets. 

    Marana Animal Services and Sahuarita Animal Services Division will handle the following animal care services for its town residents: 
    • Animal bites
    • Animal welfare concerns
    • Noise and animal waste complaints
    • Reports of stray pets within the town limits
    • Owner surrenders
    • Rabid animals
    • New dog licenses and renewals
    For other service-related inquiries, residents should call Marana Animal Services at (520) 382-8020 if they reside in the Town of Marana or Sahuarita Animal Services Division at (520) 445-7877 if they live in the Town of Sahuarita.

    Individuals who need help determining whether they are residents of Marana or Sahuarita can visit the Pima County GIS website to find out. The website requires a home address to determine the jurisdiction of a person’s residence.  

    PACC’s change in services for Marana and Sahuarita residents will not apply to pet adoptions or volunteer opportunities. The shelter will continue to welcome residents from either jurisdiction interested in volunteering or adopting a pet from the shelter and will offer them the same adoption rates and special offers as its partner jurisdictions. 

    “It doesn’t matter where our adopters or volunteers live. As long as homeless pets find loving new homes and have a second chance at happiness, that’s enough for us,” said Justin Gallick, PACC director of community engagement.
