Animal Control

Welcome to Gila County Animal Control and Shelter! 

Pet of the Week
Meet Molly!


Molly is a spayed four year old Hound mix. She is energetic, loving, and enjoys chasing after the birds and squirrels in the back yard. 

Molly does well with others dogs and is very affectionate towards people. She has learned to put her head on peoples shoulders so they can give her a hug and massage her. 

Molly has been with us for about two months now. At our last adoption fair she was playing with several children and other dogs. Molly is very sweet and easily adapts to new environments.

We provide rescue and humane care to protect the health, safety and welfare of animals and people in Gila County and enforce State laws that pertain to domestic animals.
