donate to AC&C in honor of the betty white challenge

Join CMPD Animal Care & Control honor Betty White as a lifelong animal advocate and supporter as part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge – now through January 19. This challenge urges fans to donate $5 (or more) to a local animal shelter in her name and help support shelter animals in your community. When donating, enter "Betty White Challenge" in the comment box and donate to which ever fund you'd like.

Thanks to Jessica Lamb with Keller Williams Realty, your donations can be doubled up to $250!


  • The shelter and field operations are open and operating normal business hours.

  • MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCING are REQUIRED when visiting our center.

  • 2 pet interactions per family per day. (There may be time for a second interaction based on how busy it is at the time of your visit.)
  • Please be PATIENT and kind with our staff as they work extremely hard to assist all visitors.
  • If you are looking for a missing pet check the lost/found section but you NEED TO COME TO THE SHELTER to ID and reclaim in person. PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR MESSAGE!

  • Call 311 or send us a private message on our social pages if you have any questions about an adoptable pet before coming to visit. This will help minimize your wait time.

  • If you have a concern about a loose animal or potential cruelty, call 311.

  • Other general questions can be sent via private message to our social pages.

HELP! We are currently in great need of adopters, fosters, and staycationers!
