Pet Volunteer Program
The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center employs the assistance of volunteers. Volunteers are used for administrative duties, caring for the animals, adoption counseling, helping to socialize the animals, transporting the animals to the veterinarian and any other duty that may help our operation.
Our volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
For more information and possible volunteer openings, contact the Sierra Vista Police Department’s Volunteer Coordinator at 520-452-7500 or download a Sierra Vista Police Department volunteer application form.
Recycling Program for Pets
The Sierra Vista Animal Control staff collects aluminum cans to raise funding for sick and injured stray animals and other general shelter needs. Please separate the tabs from the cans to increase their value and crush the cans to help save on space. The shelter also accepts the tabs once they are separated.
Arizona Pet Friendly License Plate
You can also purchase an Arizona Pet Friendly license plate. The statewide program reallocated $17 of the $25 purchase to a spay and neuter program, providing no-cost or low-cost sterilization surgery for dogs and cats.
The shelter also accepts both supply and monetary donations. We can always use Pedigree Dry Dog Food, Purina Puppy Chow, Purina Cat Chow, Purina Kitten Chow, clay cat litter, Milkbone dog biscuits, and toys, collars, leashes, towels, beds, crates, etc. Please call for a list of other items we may need.
Donations can also be made during tax season right on your Arizona Tax Form 140. Just enter the amount you’d like to contribute on line 73. Your donation will automatically be deducted from your refund or added to the balance of any taxes you owe. Find out more about tax season donations.
If you make online purchases from Amazon.com, please visit Amazon Smile and select The Friends of the S.V. Animal Shelter from the list. When you make a purchase, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the sale to the organization.
