- About Us
At the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, we know that your pet is a member of the family. Losing your beloved companion is a painful experience. We also understand it shouldn’t be made more difficult with high costs. The HSSA offers low-cost euthanasia and cremation services to the public, so you have one less thing to worry about at this heart-wrenching time.
We offer this service by appointment only to ensure adequate time and staff. Appointments are available Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m.. Please call 520-321-3711 to make an appointment.
Because of the high volume of customers we assist, we cannot provide owner-attended services. If you wish to remain with your pet at the time of euthanasia, please contact a full-service veterinary clinic.
Please note, the HSSA offers humane euthanasia by injection for animals that are incurably ill, aged, badly injured, etc. We do not euthanize healthy animals at the owner’s request, but can suggest available alternatives. Call 327-6088 for more information.
|Euthanasia only (owner takes pet back)||$65|
|Euthanasia w/general cremation (no ashes returned)||$130|
|Euthanasia w/special cremation (ashes returned)||$190|
Are you grieving?
Grief is natural
Whether the result of a natural death, accident, illness, your decision to euthanize, or its disappearance, the feelings you have over the loss of your beloved pet can seem overwhelming. Know that your feelings are natural, as painful as they may be.
In our culture, when a pet dies there are some who may not understand how painful this loss can be. To experience the sweet and deep love possible between a person and pet is a gift. With this gift of strong love comes a corresponding response of strong grief. The HSSA offers a support group for people who have suffered the loss of a pet.
HSSA volunteer Renee Terry facilitates the support group every second and fourth Thursday of the month, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. Please call Renee at 520-603-8319 to register for the group.
