Foster Care

Helping our most vulnerable pets

From the tiniest puppies and kittens to recuperating seniors, there are always pets at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona in need of a little extra help.

The HSSA’s Foster Care Program provides care for animals not yet ready for adoption. Volunteers care for animals in their own homes, providing animals that are underweight, underage, sick or injured the time they need to grow or heal. Our foster parents saves thousands of lives each year and there is always a need for foster parents.

To learn more about becoming a Foster please call (520) 327-6088 ex. 148.
