Lost / Stray dogs

All the dogs impounded by Avondale Animal Control are transported to the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control facility located at 2500 S 27 Ave in Phoenix at the end of each day. We work seven days a week excluding holidays. The Maricopa County Animal Care and Control website has a found pet locater that shows where the dog was picked up on a map and there is usually a photo of the animal attached.
