Beginning May 18, we will begin our Stage 2 reopening. All adoptions will be by appointment only and scheduled Tuesday – Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM. Call the shelter at 928-474-5590 to schedule your appointment.

Need to license your dog? If you live in the town of Payson, you can not only license your dog on our website, you can now come to our shelter at 605 W. Wilson Court. Please call when you have arrived as we are limiting the number of people entering our facility at one time. Licensing hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM.


Our staff will be practicing social distancing and wearing face masks. We ask you do the same if visiting to keep our volunteers and staff safe. Please call with any questions.


We are all thankful for your support, donations and understanding through this difficult time. We are committed to finding loving homes for the animals that share our journey while keeping our adopters, volunteers, supporters, staff and families safe.
