The Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s Foster Care Program provides care for animals not yet ready for adoption. Volunteers care for animals in their own homes, providing animals that are underweight, underage, sick, or injured the time they need to grow or heal so they may become adoptable. We also provide a foster care service for animals deemed as evidence in ongoing criminal investigations. Our Foster Care Program saves thousands of lives each year and there is always a need for Foster Care Volunteers.

We are often contacted by students who would like to volunteer at the shelter and work “hands on” with our homeless animals to fulfill their community service assignments.

However, HSSA offers an alternative for students who wish to help the homeless animal community and fulfill their community service assignments. To learn more aboutthis program, students are encouraged to obtain a school-based community service packet by contacting us at 520.321.3704, ext. 142.

Other services: Microchipping of cats and dogs can also be done at the time of vaccination. Cost for microchip identification is $25.
Deworming is available for your pets. The cost is $10 for dogs and $15 for cats. For more information, contact our clinic at 881-0321.

Calling all dogs! Join us on February 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the annual Tucson Lifestyle Cover Dog contest! This year the festive photo party will be held in the lovely lower courtyard of La Encantada shopping center.
The first step toward becoming a volunteer with HSSA is to attend an information session, where you will learn about the HSSA, what opportunities we have for you and why you should volunteer with us. Information sessions last 1.5 hours; we do ask that you plan to stay for the entire session. You do not need to RSVP, just show up! Information sessions will start promptly and tend to fill up very quickly. For these reasons, we cannot accept anyone who arrives more than 10 minutes late. For our evening sessions, please park outside the blue wrought iron fence. The main shelter closes at 6 p.m., and the gates will be locked.
