M.A.S.H. stands for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Animal Safe Haven. This special unit provides care, feeding, shelter, and rehabilitation for animals that have suffered in abuse, cruelty, and neglect cases that are evidence until available for adoption.
The M.A.S.H. Unit also assists volunteer working inmates to learn work and life skills, while developing empathy, purpose, and compassion while rehabilitating the animals being cared for.
The goal of the M.A.S.H. Unit is to help the animals, while positively affecting the working inmates who care for them. This is all done with the aim of transitioning working inmates back into society as positive, functional members of the community and help the animal victims to trust people and find forever homes.
Call M.A.S.H. at 602-876-1212 if interested in a particular animal to find out additional information and to schedule an appointment any day of the week from 8am to 1:30pm.
We require a meet and greet at our facility, especially for potential adopters that have children and if there will be another dog in the home to do a dog intro to check compatibility.
If residing in an apartment or rental home, a proof from the property or property manager allowing pets must be presented as part of the adoption process.
M.A.S.H. has no set adoption fees, but a reasonable donation is required, and all donations go to offset any additional veterinarian costs, as well as items for health and well-being of the animals.
We do not adopt out of state and do not deliver animals to adopters.
