What will happen to homeless animals in the East Valley?

It is important to us that people in the East Valley are able to provide for animals in need.  We will work with our community partners to ensure there are East Valley locations for people to adopt homeless dogs and cats, including the possibility of more adoption events.  Animal Care and Control is also considering an increased presence in the East Valley during the transitional period.  They will respond to and serve both residents and homeless animals.
