Apache Junction Animal Control is a municipal shelter and is required to accept dogs and cats for surrender. However, our facility is run with a “capacity for care” protocol meaning we may limit the number of surrendered animals per day when the shelter is at capacity.
We intake animals from within the Apache Junction city limits only. We will not accept animals from outside our jurisdiction. AJAC has the right to refuse a pet without a surrender appointment or when the shelter is full. Please call us prior to bringing your pet for surrender, so that we can ensure there is a space for your animal.
AJAC is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00am – 3:00pm. Please call 480-983-4405 to schedule an appointment for surrender.
