On-Site Services

We offer a variety of services to our local community, including pet adoptions, pet surrenders, assistance with spay/neuter costs, and much, much more. We are here to help you and your pets through every stage of your life together!

Shelter for Homeless/Unwanted Pets

The Coconino Humane Association provides loving and humane care to over 2,500 companion animals each year.  We do not limit our intake to just dogs and cats but believe that all pets need care and a safe place to go when their owners are no longer able to care for them. Each year we care for many species including rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, ferrets, snakes, lizards, turtles, birds, etc.

Flagstaff and Coconino County are rural communities where chickens, ducks, turkey, geese, goats, and pigs sometimes need a safe place to go and we provide that care!

In 2019, we provided shelter to 1/3 of the total community homeless and unwanted pets without contractual funding from the City of Flagstaff or Coconino County.


Pet Surrenders

While we never advocate for surrendering a pet, sometimes financial or personal situations require a surrender. If you are considering surrendering a pet to us, you’ll need to fill out an application and make an appointment to consult with our staff to make sure it’s the best option for you and your pet.

Contact the Coconino Humane Association (928) 526-1076 for assistance and additional resources.

Pet Adoptions

Each dog and cat that is adopted receives a veterinary exam, core and required vaccinations (DAPPV, FVCP, rabies), a spay/neuter operation, de-worming treatment, flea/tick treatment, and a microchip implant and registration. Did you know? We are the only shelter in our area that houses and re-homes other animals (livestock, exotic animals, rodents, birds, and more). Click here to view our current adoptable pets.

Spay/Neuter Assistance

Spaying or neutering your pet is one of the easiest ways to control our area’s pet population and keep shelter populations down. If you need to spay/neuter your pet but don’t have the funds, you can fill out our income-based application to see if you qualify for a reduced-fee voucher.

Disease Prevention

Upon admittance to the shelter, animals are given a wide range of vaccinations. Inoculations are given by the Humane Association aid in the prevention of disease in our community.

We are proud to welcome Kaibab Veterinary Clinic, typically on the 2nd Saturday of each month, for a PUBLIC low-cost vaccine clinic.  This cash only clinic is a great option to keep your pets’ vaccines up-to-date.  Please watch our Upcoming Events or our Facebook page for the next clinic date.

Low-Cost End of Life Services

We are committed to helping pets throughout the course of their lives. If you are facing the end of your pet’s life, we can provide compassionate, low-cost end of life services.

Canine Behavior Services

Thanks to a wonderful and extremely generous grant from the Petco Foundation we are so pleased to present our new dog training program and training parks! This funding not only helped us to build some amazing new outdoor areas but will also allow us to provide dog training and behavioral modification to help shelter dogs achieve “adoption-ready” status and new loving homes.

Our Certified Advanced Canine Training and Behavior Specialist is also scheduling classes to help pet-owners learn new tricks and training for their pets at home!
