How old does my pet need to be for vaccines?

Puppies and kittens should begin their vaccine series at about 6 weeks old. They will require 2-3 rounds of shots to be fully vaccinated. They will need shots on an annual basis after that.

My pet is missing. What do I do?

If your pet has gone missing, we recommend taking the following steps.

  • Visit the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control website to find information about lost and found pets.
  • Check Straydar of Arizona, a public Facebook group sharing information about lost and found pets.
  • Check Nextdoor.com to list your missing pet and check for notices of found pets in your neighborhood.
  • List a notice about your missing pet on Craigslist and check for notices of found pets that match your pet’s description.

If you suspect that your pet may have been removed from the Salt River Indian Community by the SRPD Animal Control Technician or a Salt River Police Ranger, you may be able to locate your pet at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) facility.

I found a stray dog. What do I do?

Please consider keeping the dog at your home while you look for the owner, if it is safe to do so. We also recommend taking these steps.

  • If you are able to, please have a veterinarian scan the dog for a microchip. If the dog is chipped, you may be able to locate its owners more quickly.
  • Visit the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control website to find information about lost and found pets.
  • Post a “found animal” notice online at the following places. Also check for posts searching for pets that match the description of the animal you found.

You may also bring the animal the West Valley Shelter. Please make sure to list the dog as missing on the shelter’s Lost and Found website to help locate the owner.

I found kittens, now what?

Leave the kittens where they are! It’s likely that mom will return. She might be out hunting or in the process of moving her litter. The kittens stand the best chance for survival with her.

The Arizona Humane Society has excellent information about how to tell if kittens have been orphaned, and how to care for them at home if needed. Check it out at Don’t Kit-nap Kittens.
