- About Us
At the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, we understand that the decision to surrender your pet is not an
easy one. We treat each circumstance with understanding and respect.
We believe the best place for any pet is in a loving, committed home. Before you make the decision to
surrender your pet, please consider looking at our Pet Behavior page to see if there are resources available to help you keep your pet in your home. You can also contact an adoption counselor at 520-327-6088.
If you would like to keep your pet, but can’t afford spay or neuter surgery, please visit our Low-cost Spay & Neuter page to find out about programs that may be able to help.
Also, please see our Surrender FAQs.
If you’ve made the decision you can no longer keep your pet, YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT with an admissions counselor to release your pet into our care. The HSSA has these appointment times in order to:
Appointments are usually available within a week. Allow 15-45 minutes for your surrender appointment. We encourage all owners to provide all veterinary records for their pet, and to ensure their pet is current on vaccines before admission. This helps protect your pet from illness and allows him to find a new home more quickly.
Call 520-327-6088 ext. 111 to make an appointment.
The HSSA does collect an Animal Care Fee at the time of surrender.
|Single Dog or Cat||$45|
|Dog or Cat Litter (2 or more, under 6 months)||$75*|
|All Other Pets (birds, fowl, pocket pets, etc)||$15|
*Fee is the same with or without mother
If you are unable to wait for an appointment, you can take your pet to Pima Animal Care Center. PACC, the county facility, is at 4000 N. Silverbell. There is no appointment needed to drop off stray or owned animals.
Please note that we are unable to pick up animals.
