Our Mission

Our Commitment
Pima Animal Care Center is committed to providing timely service to residents and compassionate care to animals, while working to support public safety, find homes for homeless animals and educate the community about responsible pet ownership. The Silverbell facility is open from noon until 7 p.m. weekdays, and from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekends.

Here are some of the ways we approach our mission:
- Protecting public health and safety by enforcing laws and ordinances;
- Responding and investigating complaints of animal abuse and cruelty;
- Providing shelter for abandoned pets, none of which are turned away;
- Working with more than five dozen rescue and animal welfare partners to find loving homes for homeless animals;
- Picking up stray dogs to increase safety for the animals and your neighborhood, while providing an opportunity for lost pets to be reunited with their owners;
- Promoting and supporting low-cost spay/neuter, vaccination and licensing services;
- Encouraging volunteers and donors to assist in our mission.
