Uno Por Uno
Uno por Uno (Spanish for one by one) was started in 2007 as a culturally sensitive campaign addressing the needs of under-served neighborhoods in Maricopa County, serving families and their pets. Uno por Uno offers free-or low-cost spay/neuter services, rabies vaccination clinics, license clinics and education on a frequent and repetitive basis throughout one neighborhood.
For the past two years, Uno por Uno has occurred in one neighborhood each year, for an extended period of time. The area is canvassed by MCACC Animal Control Officers, who hand out flyers and information to the residents explaining the laws in Maricopa County, responsible pet ownership and sharing information on the location and dates of the clinics. MCACC and their partners provide free or low-cost spay/neuter and rabies vaccination clinics in the neighborhood.
Neighborhoods identified as at risk or under-served are selected for this program. These are areas with a high number of dogs running loose and a low licensing compliance. They also show a high incidence of bites, and large number of impounded animals. Dogs that come from these areas also tend to have a high euthanasia rate when reaching the shelter.
MCACC is taking a more proactive approach to safeguard public health and safety and to save the lives of more pets. MCACC is changing the culture of pet ownership in Maricopa County through initiatives like Uno por Uno. MCACC is providing direct services and educating pet owners one-on-one about responsible pet ownership, spaying and neutering, the leash law, the importance of pet vaccinations, and dog licensing.
The new Uno por Uno will be maintained year round, bringing services to the neediest areas of the County. Our goal is to reduce intake, eliminate euthanasia, reduce bites, and increase rabies vaccination and license compliance.
Uno por Uno is not a mandated service. It is strictly funded by the generous support of people like you and the wonderful businesses who have offered their support each year.
