Join the Foster care Family! Fostering is hard work--but it's also really fun. It's the ideal volunteer activity for someone who wants to enrich the lives shelter pets in the comfort of their own home. The Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) has a diverse selection of available foster animals:
-Neonates/bottle babies (0-4 weeks old) who need high levels of care
-Underage puppies and kittens who need to gain weight and gain social skills before they're old enough for spay/neuter
-Pregnant/Nursing mothers and their litters who need consistent shelter and food as they grow
-Medical shelter pets who need a relaxing environment to heal
-Adoptable pets who want time to decompress while they are searching for a forever home
-Behavioral pets who would benefit from training away from stress
-Pocket pets on pregnancy watch

Placing animals into qualified foster homes on a temporary basis enables the HSSA to save the lives of animals that might not otherwise be saved. We provide all necessary supplies for our fosters.
