Our main goal in everything that we do as an organization is to stay true to our mission: "To reduce the number of homeless pets through rescue, adoption, and spay/neuter programs."
If you've lost your pet, please visit the Humane Society of Yuma in-person as soon as possible. Each month, hundreds of lost dogs & cats find temporary, safe shelter with us.
Please do not email us for lost or found pets. If you have found a stray animal please contact your local animal control agency.
