We always need laundry detergent! Can you believe that we sometimes do more than 500 pounds of laundry per day in the Adoption Center and the Spay & Neuter Clinic to keep the animals clean and comfy? That's a whole of towels, blankets and toys!

But we must keep the animals healthy with fresh, clean laundry daily. Next time you visit the grocery store, please pick up a gallon of liquid laundry detergent - nothing fancy please, since we can't use HE or powdered detergents. You can drop off the detergent at our Adoption Center or at our Spay & Neuter Clinic. The animals thank you!

YHS always needs supplies to help keep our shelter animals clean, happy and comfortable.

Please help us with the many needed items on our Wish List. We also have an Everyday Item Wish List and a Training & Enrichment Wish List on Amazon - shop online and have these much needed items delivered to us. Your donation can go even further by making your purchase through AmazonSmile and selecting Yakima Humane Society as your designated charity.
