Your Work Can Save Lives

When you bring your skills and talents to the Arizona Humane Society, you’re helping to shape the future of pet welfare. We’re on a mission to save animal lives, and we need passionate, customer service-oriented individuals to make it happen. Come see why Phoenix Magazine voted us “Best Nonprofit” and “Best Place to Volunteer.” (The puppies and kittens might have something to do with it.)

Life at AHS

As an established nonprofit, we have many different opportunities for you to use and develop your skill set. And regardless of your career path, you can rest assured that you’ll be surrounded by fellow animal fanatics. From our vet staff to marketing and from volunteer engagement to our facilities team, every person has a vital role in improving the lives of Arizona pets.

And speaking of pets—they’d love to meet you. We encourage you to bring shelter pets into your office for the day, or grab enrichment baskets to play with a pup on your break. (Yes, really!)
