This portal was created to support a stakeholder task force initiative. Upon conclusion of the process, members wanted the Citizens for Pets link to remain active for comments and updates. You are invited to review the information and provide your thoughts via the Citizens for Pets comments page. Your comments are reviewed at the management level - staff remains committed to finding ways to improve our shelter operations.
Tag Your Wag
Recently launched is our new ad campaign focused on increasing licensing compliance. Tag Your Wag is a fun and creative approach to educating the community on the importance of licensing their dog. A majority of the animals that arrive at Maricopa Control Animal Care and Control (MCACC) shelters have no form of identification and fewer than 15% are reunited with their families. Licensing your dog helps ensure we can contact you should your dog be brought to our shelter locations. The Tag Your Wag campaign will run from January through June and features digital billboards, online advertising and radio commercials. The campaign directs people to Tag Your Wag, where they can get a dog license make a voluntary donation to help shelter pets.
