The llamas' owner, Bub Bullis of Copper Llamas, said there were actually three animals that got spooked and ran away near 103rd Avenue and Grand.
The animals were brought to the Carillons Assisted Living center for a special event, and as they were packing up to leave, the trio got spooked and ran off.
"I was very, very surprised to see them in the lobby," Claire Mevius said about finding the llamas in her senior living facility.
"It's a good way of having therapy for our residents, they enjoyed it," Tina Ortega, who directs activities at The Carillons, said.
Maricopa County Sheriff's officials said the first 911 call came in at 11:55 a.m., with the caller reporting the llamas were on the loose and that they had been trying to capture them for an hour already.
Air15 followed the llamas as they stealthily evaded capture for nearly an hour -- dodging captors, cars and running along neighborhood streets. The llamas were eventually caught and lassoed.
