|About||Serving Yavapai County since 1972, Yavapai Humane Society is an independent nonprofit that shelters, rehabilitates, and adopts out cats, dogs, and horses.|
|Mission||To promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of companion animals in our community. We envision the day when every pet has a good home and is well cared for all of its life.|
YHS is a private, non-profit organization. Our operations are funded primarily with donations, fundraisers, grants and the support of the community. We do have a contractual obligation to provide animal care for stray dogs and cats brought in by animal control officers of Prescott, Prescott Valley, and Yavapai County, but these funds represent less than 10% of our annual income. We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501 (c) (3).
You can support YHS through the donations of cash and supplies and through wills and bequests. Also, we welcome volunteers to assist with various activities such as fundraising and helping out with routine duties around the shelter.
