Press Releases and Video News Releases

TUCSON, AZ – (September 17th, 2020) – The Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s (HSSA) Pet VIP Therapy Teams are now available for virtual visits! The need for unconditional love, support, and acceptance that is provided by HSSA’s therapy pet teams is rapidly increasing during these uncertain times, and HSSA is inviting anyone who feels they would benefit from a virtual visitation to sign up.

The virtual visitations will be offered via Zoom, and will last for a duration of 15-20 minutes. Participants will need to have an internet connected device such as a laptop, tablet, or smart phone with a working microphone and camera.

Veronica Zimmerman, HSSA Pet VIP Lead says, “Unfortunately, the current circumstances we all face on a daily basis, with social distancing, wearing protective gear, and using caution in our daily interactions, many of the facilities we normally offer our support through regular visitations have been forced to take protective measures to ensure the safety of their clients and avoid any visitations.”
