How Can I Help the Yakima Humane Society?

If you are interested in helping in any way, reach out via social media by phone or in person during business hours. Volunteer opportunities are always needed, for instance, early morning cleanings and more. If you are able to foster animals, there is a real need.

If you are interested in donating supplies are always needed such as puppy pads, toys, blankets, blanket, beds, food, and kitty litter. Anything you know an animal would love can always be used.

Help spread the word by sharing this information and be advised that the Yakima Humane Society will be closed this Thursday for Thanksgiving as well as Friday, back open again on Saturday
