We can always use a few extra hands! If you or your group want to help out for a day, let us know!
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.

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

Painting boxes for cats to hide in
Laminating cage signs
Picking up garbage on property

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 520-327-6088, ext. 125 for more information.
