The mission of City of Maricopa Animal Care & Control is for Maricopans to live in a community that promotes the humane treatment of animals through education, advocacy, and community service. While providing compassionate animal protection along with protecting public safety and animal welfare, the City of Maricopa works in partnership with Pinal County Animal Care and Control to address issues including lost & found pets, dog bites, and more. Contact us if you require assistance with:
- Rabies control
- Impounding of stray or dangerous dogs
- Investigating cruelty cases
- Educating the public to be more responsible pet owners
- Handling excessive barking complaints
- Assisting injured animals
- Enforcing state laws, county ordinances, and city codes that pertain to the licensing, treatment and control of domestic animals
State law requires all dogs over the age of three months to be vaccinated against rabies. The license requirement is to allow city or county agencies to ensure that the dog has a current rabies vaccination. It also gives animal control agencies a way to identify the owner of an impounded animal so they can get the animal back home. You must have a copy of a current rabies vaccination certificate from a licensed veterinarian that is good for at least one year. You can visit the Maricopa Wells Veterinary Hospital at 41620 W Maricopa-Casa Grande Hwy Suite 101 and purchase your license.
