I lost my pet. Do you have him? Due to the large volume of animals that we take in, we are unable to tell you over the phone or by email if we have your pet in our care. As we don't want to give you wrong information, please visit both our West and East Valley Animal Care Centers every two days to look for your lost pet. You can also use our Interactive Search Tool as a resource in the search for your lost pet.
How long does MCACC keep stray dogs or cats? By law, we are required to hold stray animals for 72 hours. This allows time for an owner to claim their lost pet.
What happens if the dog or cat is not claimed? Our staff evaluates each animal and if they physically and mentally healthy, the animals will be sent to a rescue group or put up for adoption.
