Welcome Message from Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery
Animals are special members of our community. They are part of the wonder and beauty of our natural environment. They also provide joy and comfort to our families.
That’s why Arizona law provides important protections for animals, whether living in the wild or as domestic pets in your home. As Maricopa County Attorney I’m committed to upholding these laws and prosecuting those who harm or abuse animals in our community.
My office designed this website to provide you with important information about our animal protection laws and to provide links to helpful resources for animal owners. You’ll also find instructions on how to report animal cruelty and what to do if you encounter an animal in need of help or a home.
We can only call ourselves a civilized society to the extent we care and protect those who are the most innocent and vulnerable – and that includes the animals that live among us. Please join me in committing to make Maricopa County an animal-friendly place to live.
