Animal Care and Control wants to spend every dollar it gets on things that directly impact animal welfare. Maricopa County’s East Valley campus at Baseline Road and Mesa Drive offers an ideal location for a new animal shelter because there are no land costs. The county owns the site and there’s space available and infrastructure in place for additional services. The campus is located off the highway (US 60) with adjacent bus routes, making it easily accessible for visitors, staff, and volunteers. A specific site on the campus has not been chosen at this time.
