Yakima Humane Society is proud to have been chosen as one of the National Pets for Life Partners. The program is yet another way Yakima Humane Society is forging a more humane Yakima.
The Pets for Life (PFL) program reaches out to underserved communities to offer free pet care resources, services and information. PFL incorporates strategic door-to-door outreach, builds a consistent community presence and uses an extensive follow-up process to build relationships and trust within a segment of the pet-owning population that has largely gone untouched by animal service providers. PFL employs a three-pronged methodology to address the systemic challenges that people and pets living in poverty face:
Direct Care - Delivers pet services and information
Mentorship and Training - Guides and supports local organizations in implementing community outreach programs
Policy and Enforcement Reform - Influences organizations to be focused more on pet owner support and less on punishment
