Animal Care & Control
Animal Care and Control is the Division of the Health and Human Services Department which protects the health and welfare of Pinal County citizens by managing the county’s companion animal population, enforcing rabies prevention/intervention regulations and enforcing the provisions of the Animal Control Ordinance. We humanely house and care for stray animals, unwanted, abandoned or abused pets, and place healthy companion animals in new homes through adoption. We provide proactive and ongoing public education and information to the residents of Pinal County. Our organization adheres to professional standards in all aspects of public relations and animal management.

Friday, September 28 is National World Rabies Day and Pinal County Animal Care & Control will be open extended hours. An area vet will be on staff from noon to 7:00 PM to administer the rabies vaccine to dogs or cats.
“A lot of people don’t realize that Animal Control’s primary mission is to prevent the spread of rabies, which is deadly to animals and humans,” Dickson said. “Licensing your pet gives proof that it has a current vaccine. If there is no proof of vaccination and your dog bites someone and breaks the skin, we have to impound the animal at the owner’s expense until rabies is ruled out.”
