Service Groups

We can always use a few extra hands

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) welcomes community and high school groups to schedule service events to complete projects that will provide comfort and enrichment to the animals in our care. These events are specifically for groups interested in one-time volunteer opportunities.

Service event activities may include:

  • Fixing, cleaning and organizing donated pet crates

  • Bagging food for the public food distribution

  • Sweeping and cleaning windows

  • Making no-sew cat beds

  • Stuffing KONG toys with peanut butter and kibble

  • Making catnip toys

  • Making dog leashes

  • Preparing receiving folders

  • Preparing adoption folders for new adopters

  • Painting boxes for cats to hide in

  • Laminating cage signs

  • Picking up garbage on property

  • Stuffing event giveaway bags

  • Assembling pet first aid kits

Service Groups and Donation Projects

Youth groups can make items to be used at HSSA or they may hold a supply drive or fundraiser at their own pace and in their own facility. Due to age restrictions, we are unable to host youth groups under the age of 15. The Education department will provide instruction for different items to be made, fundraising ideas and wish lists. Upon completion, groups may schedule a “thank you” tour Monday – Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email sgary@hssaz.org or call 520-327-6088, ext. 125 for more information.
