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!

We adopted Mac he was said to be 2 yrs old but my vet said he was 1 yrs old ( corgi/ blk lab mix) he was so full of energy. I fell in love with him. It was hard once we got him home at first because he had no training & did whatever he wanted. But through training & patients he has turned out to be an amazing, funny, loving little guy. He's my walking buddy to. Everyday he makes us all laugh. We are so glad we got him.

As an employee of Yavapai Humane Society I know how much our staff cares about the animals and the people we serve. We are proud of our No Kill ethic and we know we couldn't sustain a No Kill shelter without the help of our compassionate community. I enjoy working for a cause I believe in, but ultimately I would love to be out of work because we found every pet a good home.

I adopted a cat from YHS earlier in the year. The staff was caring and wonderful and made sure that it was the right match for both Tucker and us! Tucker is amazing and wonderful and we adore him! Thank you, YHS, for making sure that we got a wonderful new family member! He is perfect for us and he seems to be happy in his new home as well!

We adopted our Aussie border cross 6 years ago and he is still going strong. One of the best decisions we made was to come to Yavapai Humane Society and find our next fur baby. The staff was helpful and caring. We now adopt instead of go to breeders for our house pets.

YHS works hard around the clock to make sure their animals are well cared for and the facility stays clean for both the animals and the customers. From newborn kittens and puppies all the way to the golden ages, every cat and dog there receives the best love and care from each and every employee and volunteer until they find their forever home. YHS has excellent staff and a wonderful facility. I adopted both of my loving little fluffballs from here, and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new furry family member!

YHS is a great organization with knowledgeable staff and dedicated volunteers. Everyone there is full of compassion and does everything they can to look out for the well fare and quality of life for the animals in their care. This organization isn't only dedicated to the well being of the animals in their care, but to all the public. They offer low cost vaccines, spay and neuter services with knowledgeable technicians and veterinarians through their clinic to the public; as well as, always willing to give helpful advice. They have even recently expanded their reach to helping horses with their newly opened equine center. I have not only had the pleasure of adopting animals from this wonderful facility, but working there too! Couldn't imagine a better place to be full of hope, love, dedication, and compassion!

YHS is an amazing organization, with a great team of professionals and volunteers. I adopted my beautiful dog Cally, and my beautiful cat Lucy from YHS. They are two of the most amazing animals I've ever had. I've also had the privilege of working at YHS for the past two years, and I'm proud to be a part of an organization with a great mission and vision. We have an amazing clinic and our behavior team is always available to answer questions or make suggestions about your new pet. We truly have the most amazing animals at YHS and they're ready for their forever home. Please come and visit us!

I adopted my Bernese Mountain dog mix from YHS about 5 years ago. The facility was great then. I recently came back and adopted two cats and, WOW, they have been working hard to upgrade their facilities and programs. It far exceeded what I would have expected from a "small town" operation. Kudos to all that has been and all that is currently happening at YHS!

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...
