What's Happening at HSOY
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. Read more about kitten season in this press release.

HAVE YOU LICENSED YOUR PETS YET?
If so, thank you! If you have not, the Humane Society of Yuma wants to remind you that you are required by law to license your pets. To avoid late fees, possible fines and to help get your pets home quicker if they are lost, please ensure your pets are current with their license and rabies vaccination. You should also have your pet microchipped.
We offer this for FREE!
See the Humane Society of Yuma’s schedule for rabies vaccination clinics throughout our community. Please note all clinics are subject to change.

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.
HSOY is asking the community to spay and neuter their pets.

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.
The Humane Society of Yuma has seen a spike in stray animals coming into the shelter. Impound and boarding fees are waived through Sunday, May 13th for reclaiming pets that have entered the shelter from May 1st and who are sterilized or willing to be sterilized.
