I adopted my best friend from the Yavapai Humane Society five years ago and will be eternally grateful to them for saving my buddy. I chose the Yavapai Humane Society based on recommendations from friends, and the organization was everything they promised it would be - organized, compassionate, and professional.

My wife died a year ago and I cannot imagine how lonely I would be without my best friend. I recommend the Yavapai Humane Society without reservation!

YHS is an amazing organization with great staff and wonderful volunteers who's compassion and love for the animals shows day in and day out. Having the live release rate they do is evident of the job done there and I am thankful that we has a community have a shelter like this in Yavapai County. Keep up the great work.

I am very thankful for this shelter and hope many more shelters with open-door policies will come to emulate its no-kill ethic best as they can...

I first visited the Yavapai Humane Society almost three years ago to add a cat member to my family. I was so pleased with the facility, staff, and volunteers that I ended up gaining employment at YHS months later. I have been with this organization for over two years, and although I will be leaving soon due to relocation, this organization will always hold a special place in my heart. They have a solid mission and wonderful staff members and volunteers to lead the way.

We adopted our hound mix from Yavapai Humane Society about two months ago and they were so helpful in our process! We went in wanting N to know about two other dogs and met one other before we found our Indy. The guy at the front desk was so helpful and ready to tell us anything and everything he could about every dog we asked about. We found a new member of our family that day and we could t be more grateful!

I always had cats growing up, and the two cats I adopted from Yavapai Humane Society in 2011 are the sweetest I've ever met. The volunteers and employees absolutely love the animals they care for here and make sure that they all go to a good home.

We have adopted three cats from the Yavapai Humane Society. They are the best ever. I was a volunteer at YHS for over two years and the standards of care and standards for adoption are extremely high. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to making sure all the animals are adoptable and go to their forever homes.

Both of my two dogs I have adopted from Yavapai Humane Society, and they are the best! Now I am an employee at the shelter and love working for a great cause that I believe in. I know every member of the team really cares about these animals and has so much compassion. And the volunteers are amazing, having given years of their life to this place in order to give love to the cats and dogs.

My husband and I are always impressed when we visit the Yavapai Humane Society. With every visit we can see how much the staff at YHS cares for the animals in their charge. We also really appreciate that this shelter has a no kill ethic. We know when we donate that the money is going to help every homeless pet that comes through their doors not just the highly adoptable ones.

Years before I joined the Yavapai Humane Society Board of Directors, I had a great experience with the organization, as a local resident. Nine years ago our daughter finished college and moved to Prescott, Arizona where my wife and I lived. She wanted to adopt a pet. We made several visits together to the Yavapai Humane Society and she did not find the exact dog she wanted to adopt. One day she went by herself and asked to spend some time with a small white Chihuaha that weighed about 2 and a half pounds. Sara sat down and the dog climbed into her lap. This was a match made in heaven. Sara adopted her and named her Mini, reflecting her tiny size. The staff was patient with Sara and took care of her while she went through her search for the perfect pet. This has been a great love affair between Sara and Mini.

About a year ago, I was invited to join the Board of Directors at Yavapai Humane Society. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to find an Executive Director and a Board that operated at such a high level of Commitment to serving a community and fulfilling such a noble cause. I now can see from the inside the incredible service and commitment to the no kill ethic that I first experienced as a customer and resident nine years earlier. It has been a privilege for me to be on both sides of this equation. First to be served by this organization and then to come back and serve the community as part of a greater Team with such a high level of commitment to service.
