Gentle as a lamb, Hochi is a sweet Siamese who came into our care in need of medical attention. Hochi was blind, and to prevent further infection, his eyes were removed. After a successful surgery, Hochi healed under the supervision of our medical team. Finally on the adoptions floor, his sweet and playful personality fully blossomed. It wasn’t long before Hochi found his forever home!

Josephine came into HSSA in quite the pinch! She was pregnant with full term puppies, but had nowhere to go. After all, the shelter environment isn’t appropriate for newborn puppies. Luckily, a foster parent stepped up to the plate and welcomed this expecting momma into her home. Soon, Josephine gave birth to six beautiful babies who, thanks to their foster, will have a chance at a happy life. It's no secret that fosters save lives every single day. We are in constant need of dedicated, knowledgeable, fosters like Josephine's to help care for the lives that can't be in the shelter environment. Your impact as a foster is immeasurable.

Our first impression of Orchid touched our hearts in a melancholic way. This sweet girl had a deep, open wound on her left abdomen as well as roughly cropped ears. As she healed, Orchid began to feel and act more like herself. She joined other pups for playgroups and enjoyed going for long walks with volunteers. Before long, Orchid’s lovely personality won over the heart of her now forever family.

When we met Ruby, she was fighting a severe infection from a broken tooth. Due to the depth of canine teeth, the infection eventually pierced through her cheek creating a scar. With a treatment consisting of antibiotics and the surgical extraction of the problem tooth, Ruby was relieved of her painful symptoms. Serendipitously, the foster home that Ruby was recovering in fell in love with her. She was soon welcomed in as a permanent member of the family.

Unrecognizable from the dog she is today, Steffie was severely matted in feces and dirt upon her arrival at HSSA. Through several grooming sessions, our medical team was able to slowly reveal the gorgeous and gentle girl hiding under all the matted fur. It wasn’t long until Steffie’s sweet personality won the heart of an adopter.

When a local caretaker became overwhelmed, HSSA answered the call to help. Through several visits to the home, we welcomed nearly 30 dogs in total into our care. Though they were well loved, the pups needed check ups and baths before they were ready to move to the adoptions floor. One timid terrier named Steve needed a little extra socialization before he was ready to find his forever home. Only a few weeks later, he was welcomed into his forever home.

Larry had quite the journey during his time at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. After winning a battle with the deadly Parvo virus, Larry’s skin peeled to reveal a wound spanning the width of his back between his shoulder blades. He underwent three surgeries to remove unhealthy tissue from his wounds. Fully patched up and sporting fashionable sweaters to protect his scars, Larry finally made it to the adoptions floor where he awaits the next chapter in his life.
