Mo was attacked.
In January 2021, Mo was brought to HSSA in very rough shape. He had previously been adopted in 2013 as a puppy, and now was back after being brutally attacked by the 8 other dogs in his home.
With wounds covering his body, Mo was uncomfortable and in pain. He was shut down and depressed, not being able to comprehend his situation.
As we began nursing Mo to recovery, his personality began to come out. Mo is headstrong, independent and SO loving. He also loves to shake everyone's hand, and has won over the hearts of staff and volunteers here at HSSA.
Your donation for Arizona Gives Day helps pets like Mo receive the care and treatment they need to survive and thrive. Make your gift today: www.HSSAZ.org/DONATE
Abracadabra needs nebulizing.
Abracadabra is just a puppy, but he has Valley Fever with secondary pneumonia which requires medication and nebulizing treatments to cure.
Treatments like these for pets like Abracadabra are made possible because of donors like you.
Valentina and her babies.
When Valentina's owners brought her to HSSA she was not in great shape. They knew she was sick and were unable to provide the care she needed, so they brought her to us. Valentina has Calicivirus, which causes her to suffer from upper respiratory problems and oral ulcers. She was uncomfortable, in pain... and pregnant.
On Valentine's Day, just a few days after arriving at HSSA, Valentina gave birth to 4 healthy kittens. We named them Cupid, Romeo, Gumdrop, and Candy. Now this little family of 5 is resting comfortably in foster care, where Valentina can raise her kittens and recover from her Calicivirus symptoms.

Charlotte was in a fire.
We don't know how Charlotte was burned, but we do know she's very lucky to have gotten out alive and to have found her way to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Charlotte was picked up as a stray and brought to us by a good Samaritan who knew we could help her.
We've been treating Charlotte's burns for a few months now, and she has been nothing bu the perfect patient. Despite being in obvious pain, Charlotte is a non-stop purrer. She thrives off of attention and loves any and all affection and interaction. We don't know her history, but we know her future is bright.

Lilly was suffering.
Lilly was brought to HSSA because her owners could not manage her diabetes properly. Because she wasn't receiving the insulin she needed to live, she was malnourished and lethargic. She was on death's door and only the HSSA medical team could save her.
After months and months of treatment, Lilly is thriving. What was once a frail, almost lifeless dog, is now a fluffy, energetic puppy at heart. Lilly shocked us all with her transformation. She's not yet available for adoption, but in time, she will be able to go to her forever home.
