About Our Adoption Program

Find the love of your life at the Yakima Humane Society

Our progressive adoption program places thousands of lost, abandoned and unwanted pets with loving families each year. The adoption fees help offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals that need our help. We do our best to keep adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for animals available for adoption until we can place them in a loving home.

Our adopters tell us that our professional staff are warm, friendly, informative and patient as they assist adopters in finding a love match. Our mission is to help you find a pet that meets your expectations and lifestyle.

Our staff is helpful and courteous throughout the process. You’re invited to visit with a prospective pet in one of our "Meet N' Greet" rooms. We also offer "Meet N' Greets" for adopters wishing to introduce a current dog to a potential new playmate.
