How You Can Help

URGENT Pets - Be A Hero

Urgent Pets

We rely on our community partners - including adopters, fosters, and ACS rescue groups - to help provide placement for pets in need. Below are four ways to view all of the pets in our care. These options provide you the ability to identify all the pets in our care (to begin working on placement as soon as they enter the shelter) or pets that are at high-risk and need immediate placement.

Inventory List

Inventory List

The best place to begin! View all of the pets in our care that are available for placement. Helping to rescue, adopt, or foster pets early in their stay at ACS will not only help save the life of that pet, but can also free up space at the shelter to give other pets a little more time.

Pre-Euthanasia Report

Pre-Euthanasia Report

This report is updated hourly and identifies those pets that have reached or exceeded their due-out date and are eligible for disposition/outcome at any time (to include euthanasia). Pets eligible for disposition/outcome are all available pets without a confirmed hold and have reached or are past their release date. Please keep in mind that just because an animal appears on this report, it does not mean euthanasia is the only outcome available; you can still adopt, foster, or rescue this pet! We need your immediate help finding placement for these wonderful pets.

Post Walk-Through Report

Post Walk-Through Report

This report is updated hourly and lists those pets that have been identified for potential euthanasia at any time during the day, should intake exceed available space in the shelter.

Available Animals in ACS Foster Care Report

Available Fosters Report

This report is updated nightly and identifies those pets that are in ACS foster care and are available for adoption or transfer to rescue group. Any pet placed from our Foster Inventory, helps our invaluable ACS Foster Parents and provides the ability for them to take in more pets in need from the shelter.
