The Yakima Humane Society is a 118-year-old animal shelter dedicated to serving animals in the Yakima, WA area. We bring in several animals each day with the mission of providing them with vet care, including spaying and neutering, microchipping and finding them with a forever home.
One of the biggest challenges we face is finding the space to care for the overwhelming number of pets that come our way. These animals come to us via owner surrenders, strays, and our animal control unit. We are doing our best to promote spay and neuter services, but in the meantime, we have prioritized the comfort and quality of life for our shelter animals.
How are you helping?
We rescue, reunite, rehabilitate, and re-home 4,000 to 5,000 animals every year. We rely on donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations to save lives. There are several ways to contribute to our lifesaving efforts.
Some of the most important humane society donations come in the form of volunteers. Volunteering with the Yakima Humane Society is a great way to help animals and your community. There's always something to do, and you will witness firsthand the difference you're making in the lives of animals. Due to COVID restrictions we are limited in our volunteer opportunities. Pet Fostering is our only available volunteer opportunity at this time. We would love your involvement!
