HSSA is Thankful for Pets


TUCSON, AZ – As the time for giving thanks approaches and you reflect on the things in your life that you are most thankful for, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona (HSSA) invites you to reflect on those who will be alone and waiting. It is easy to overlook the pets still waiting to sit at the foot of a table where friends and family have gathered. These pets deserve that chance.

HSSA believes in giving each pet that chance, but it cannot be done without the generosity and contributions of loving members of our community. Because you’re grateful that these pets have a place where they can wait safely and comfortably for their family, HSSA asks that you make a gift today.

When you think of your own pets, and how thankful you are to have them in your life, you can be comforted by the knowledge that your pet is grateful to be a part of your family. Meanwhile, cats, dogs, and pocket pets in the shelter can be grateful for you, too. You can make their lives better by donating. There are many reasons to be thankful for the pets in our lives. They make our lives fuller and happier. They make up part of who we are. They are our family. The gratitude we feel towards our pets is immense.

“We took a moment to reflect on why we’re thankful for pets. The response from staff were diverse and heartwarming while others are surprising and tragic, but they all share the love and thanks we each feel for our pets. Like the story of Brioche who came to be the only surviving puppy in her litter. Or the story of Massimo, the beautiful and wolfish dog whose collar had tragically become embedded in his neck and how our amazing veterinary staff leapt to his aid. HSSA staff members each care deeply about every pet and you can witness this as they discuss the pets that have been a part of their lives,” says Hannah Terpening, Marketing Manager.

HSSA staff is grateful for the programs and services that serve every homeless pet that comes through the doors of the shelter. This season, you can show how thankful you are for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona to be here, with these pets, caring for and waiting with them to ensure they get to be the best pets they can be. These pets are grateful for the chance that you give them. Because of you these pets will one day be at the foot of a table full of friends and family members. That is something everyone can be thankful for. Give generously to HSSA’s donation drive today at www.HSSAZ.org/Thankful
