Rattlesnakes lurk everywhere in the desert southwest, and can be a life-threatening danger to dogs of all sizes. With just a few preventive steps, you can reduce the chances your dog will get bitten and die from a rattlesnake bite! Rattlesnakes are very common in the parks and trails that many dog-lovers use for hikes and walks with their dogs. More and more homes are being built in areas that were previously rural, making encounters with wildlife even more common. Here are some tips to prevent a fatal rattlesnake bite, and what to do if your dog is bitten!
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.
For the third quarter of 2018, the Humane Society of Yuma has received a total of $7,053.00 in Facebook donations. All of these came from the fundraisers (birthday and etc.) you have created for and from our Facebook Page and from the donations you have made through the "Donate" button on some of our posts.
Our phones are down, we are working to resolve as soon as possible.
