Where Every Animal Counts


We serve 100s of pets each month. Every donation you make helps take care of a person’s new companion to be.


Yavapai Humane Society is passionate about finding forever homes for the 3,000+ animals we rescue each year. Opt to adopt!


Volunteers are critical to the work we do and they help YHS make a difference in the lives of animals and the people of Yavapai County.
