UPDATE

Marana and Sahuarita Animal Services Divisions

On July 1, 2017 The Towns of Marana and Sahuarita will actively launch their Animal Services Divisions, providing Animal Control and Code Enforcement in their respective communities.  The Humane Society of Southern Arizona will be the sheltering service partner for both towns.

If you are a resident of Marana, please visit their website to learn more: www.maranaaz.gov/animal-services

If you are a resident of Sahuarita, please visit their website to learn more: www.sahuaritaaz.gov/animalservices

If you are unsure if you live within the Town limits of Marana or Sahuarita, please visit the Pima County GIS website at: http://gis.pima.gov/maps/

If you need to release your owned pet, please call 520-327-6088 x 111 to schedule an appointment.  The Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) is a managed intake facility.  By managing the admissions of animals entering our shelter, we are better able to provide the appropriate space and care for each pet.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

I live in the Town of Marana/Town of Sahuarita and have found a stray dog or cat in the Town of Marana/Sahuarita. Is there a fee to take it to the Humane Society?

No, if you are a resident of either Town and have found a stray pet in the Towns of Marana or Sahuarita, there is no fee.

You do have a couple of options:

  • Call the Animal Services phone number for your town to speak with a representative. They may be able to pick the animal up from you and reunite it with its owner, or bring it directly to HSSA main campus.

  • You may bring a stray pet to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s main campus at 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd, Tucson AZ 85716, between the hours of 9am-4pm, Monday-Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday

I have found a stray pet and it is injured. Who should I call?

First of all, be careful!  Injured pets are often scared and confused and could unintentionally hurt the finder.  Call the Animal Services Division for your Town for assistance.  The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is not a full service emergency clinic and both Towns have Veterinarians who can assist with injured pets.

I need to relinquish ownership of my dog or cat. Is there a fee to take it to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona?

Yes. As a non-profit animal welfare agency, we do charge a nominal fee for admitting owned pets. The admission fee for a single pet is $45 and $75 for a litter. Upon admission, incoming pets will be vaccinated to boost their immunity and protect them from illnesses common to animals in kenneling environments.

I live in Marana/Sahuarita and have questions about vaccinating/licensing my pet:

VACCINES:

My pet is due for a rabies vaccine:  Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian or visit any low cost vaccination service provider to get your pets’ vaccinations up to date.

LICENSING:

Licensing Renewal Information:  Starting July 1st, The Towns of Marana and Sahuarita will be offering licenses services for residents.

What if my pet is currently licensed through PACC?  Your pets’ license is good until the expiration date.  Once expired, you will need to license your pet per your Town’s guidelines.

My pet ended up at HSSA. What do I do now?

We understand that pets get loose and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona wants to help get pets back home!  While we do have a fee schedule, we are flexible with first time “offenders” (We mean the pet, not you!).  We will waive fees for pets that are current on licensing/vaccinations and are spayed or neutered.
