- About Us
At the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, we love what we do, and we love the pets we care for every day. We are always learning about the latest advancements and best practices in animal welfare. We want to share that love and knowledge with your civic group, workplace or business organization through our Speakers Bureau.
Already love a pet? Take our Pet Safety & First Aid class and you’ll be ready to jump in and save the day for your beloved pet, or be the hero for someone else.
We want to tell the world about the great things we do here at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona! We’ll be happy to start with your group.
The HSSA provides informative and inspirational talks for civic groups, businesses or professional associations, senior organizations or other service organizations. It’s important to our mission and vision that the community is informed and engaged. A Speakers Bureau presentation is a great first step.
Although our programs are free, we greatly appreciate your support of our homeless pets through suggested donations for presentations. If you belong to a civic organization or other club and would like to schedule a speaker for your next meeting, please call Inge at 520-321-3704, Ext. 142, or email gro.z1485210193assh@1485210193avyel1485210193nampo1485210193oki1485210193.
Our speakers are available for 30-minute to 60-minute presentations on a variety of topics. We can be as formal or informal as you’d like. We also can include PowerPoint presentations or animal welfare videos.
Please use the online form to make your request at least four weeks before you would like us to speak, and include the name of your group as well as the date, time and location where you’d like a speaker. Oh, and you can always come to us – we’d love to show you around!
This class, developed by veterinarian Michael Lent of Pantano Animal Clinic and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, is more than just a program on how to conduct CPR or treat medical emergencies for cats and dogs.
Participants will learn how to prevent emergencies; how to assist their vet in treating their pet; keep animals safe from local environmental hazards; avoid poisonous plants and household dangers; and identify and react to cruelty and neglect issues. And most importantly, lots of prevention!!
The class fee of $50 includes a Pet Safety and First Aid manual, hands-on skills training with animal mannequins, video instruction, and a certificate of completion. The four-hour course is open to individuals age 15 and up.
