YHS Programs

YHS Thrift Store

Shop at, donate to, or volunteer with the YHS Thrift Store. Your purchases and donations directly benefit our animals.

S.T.A.R. Special Treatment And Recovery

Special Treatment and Recovery, S.T.A.R., provides funds to care for medical needs that an animal might be euthanized for in other shelters.

Spay/Neuter Programs

YHS is committed to providing low-cost spays and neuters to the animals in our community at the YHS Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic. We also have The Big Fix, special funds to sponsor surgeries for the pets of low-income community members and for pitbulls and pitbull mixes. Click to learn more or apply today!

Equine Rescue

Yavapai County has long experienced a gap in caring for abandoned, abused and neglected equines. YHS intends to fill that gap with the launch of our Equine Rescue in early 2016. $50,000 is needed to initially fund this program. We look to the community to be a voice for horses and burros by donating to this important program.

Humane Education

YHS considers education to be the best tool in eradicating pet homelessness and ending animal cruelty and abuse. We can send speakers to meetings, educators to schools and even host field trips at the shelter.


Feral Education and Love Instead of X-termination

Learn about TNR (trap, neuter, release) as a humane feral cat solution along with information about YHS feral cat trap rentals, low-cost spay/neuter programs, and barn cat adoptions.

Safety Net

We live in tough economic times. Pets are too often surrendered to YHS because people are losing their jobs or homes, or are in domestic violence situations. We want to help keep pets and families together when appropriate. We do this with assistance from donations, grants and community sponsors and partners to help provide food,  short-term boarding and other help.

New Hope

YHS works with many animal rescue partners from all over the state and the country to find homes for the homeless and abandoned animals we all serve.
