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 adoption, rescue, and spay and 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.
Kitten season is the time of year when cats give birth to litters of kittens that flood our local animal shelter. It normally starts early spring, peaks in summer and ends in the fall and the Humane Society of Yuma struggles to try and save as many as possible.

Did you know that HSOY pays $7,280 a month to APS for electricity? The electricity bill is one of the largest expenses for the organization and to reduce the cost, the Humane Society of Yuma went forward with a solar project. In late December, Eckard Commerical Construction Inc. completed the first part of the installation of the solar panels on the roof of the Humane Society of Yuma.
