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.
Raining Cats and Dogs.
It’s the perfect storm; it is raining cats and dogs at the shelter. May is historically one of the most difficult months of the year for the Humane Society of Yuma. We are 23 days into May and have received a total of 649 animals since May 1st. 26 cats and 6 dogs came in, Tuesday morning just within the first two hours of operation. Since 2012, the average intake in May is 945.5 animals, with an overwhelming emphasis on cats and kittens entering the shelter. As of May 1st, 2018 we have taken in 421 cats and kittens for an average of 19 cats per day.
