Who We Are

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is a non-profit agency supported by its services, memberships, and contributions from our community. Incorporated in 1944 as the Humane Society of Tucson, we now serve all of Southern Arizona with our shelter, adoption services, spay and neuter clinic, education and outreach, and public service programs.

Adopting A Friend

Sterilization surgery and initial vaccinations are included in the adoption fees of $80 for a dog or cat, $100.00 for kittens or puppies and $135.00 for purebred dogs & Small breed dogs under 25lbs. Animals over 3 months of age are vaccinated against rabies; dogs over 3 months of age are issued a Pima County license.

Foster Homes Needed

Help us save more lives! HSSA relies on our generous volunteer foster caregivers to help save animals too young for adoption, recovering from illness or other medical treatment, or those that just need some extra TLC and/or socialization before they can be made available for adoption. Can you help? Find out more about our Foster Care program by calling our Volunteer Coordinator at 321-3704, ext. 126
