How You Can Help

Impounded & Urgent pets in the care of ACS

With 32,000 cats and dogs coming into our shelter each year we need our community to help find placement for these pets. We encourage those looking to adopt to come to the shelter and meet with the many wonderful pets that we have available. ACS places over 13,000 pets a year with our dedicated and amazing rescue groups and 1,300 into our wonderful foster homes.

Below are some of the ways that you can view the pets in our care so you can make the best selection for you to adopt, foster or pull into your rescue group. Pets are not eligible for adoption until they are medically able to be sterilized (approximately 2 months). Some of the reports will show pets that are not eligible for adoption due to age.
