The Humane Society of Southern Arizona requires all dogs be collared and leashed before leaving our property. You can bring your own, or pick up these items tax-free at our main shelter or our PAWSH stores.

How much does it cost to save a life?

Getting a pet ready for their forever home takes a number of necessary steps:

The average amount spent on each shelter pet is $910.

Every pet that comes into our care receives the proper vaccinations, a spay/neuter surgery, food, shelter, a warm and dry place to sleep, and if they need it, behavioral training and special medical attention.

We also make sure every single pet in our care gets a microchip, so that if they ever get lost, they can find their way back to the people who love them.
