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.
