Be a Foster Hero

Become a Hero and Save a Life

Bring home a foster pet. Sometimes the greatest gift you can give an animal is time, love and a place to call home.

When you become an AHS foster hero, you are giving a second chance to an animal who needs temporary respite from the shelter as they heal from injury or illness.

Fostering is an amazing way to help us save animals, and you can involve the whole family! And now we’re making it super easy for you to find the perfect furry friend to nurse back to health through an online foster portal that you can search from the comfort of your own home. For more information on fostering, please see the Foster FAQs. To open your home and become a hero to our needy pets, please register for one of our upcoming Foster Hero Volunteer Orientations listed below.

Check out some of our animals currently available to foster.

Project Active Duty Program

The Arizona Humane Society is partnering with PetSmart Charities to care for and protect the animals of those who are protecting us around the world through our Project Active Duty Program. Launched as a response to the September 11th attacks, AHS started Project Active Duty as a way to give back to the brave men and women serving our country. This program allows loving pet owners leaving for a tour of duty to entrust their pets with AHS, providing not only peace of mind during their deployment, but comfort knowing that when they return, their pet will be waiting for them.
