New Hope

Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) takes in over 3,500 animals every year. We have a no-kill ethic and believe that if an animal hasn't found an owner at YHS, we should do everything in our power to find it a forever home. The New Hope program is the means by which YHS acknowledges, cooperates with, and supports the efforts of partnering 501(c)(3) animal organizations as we all try to find homes for our community's homeless pets.

YHS sends out New Hope Alerts to our partners with lists of our long-term or hard to place residents in an effort to raise their profiles state and nation-wide.

If you work with a qualifying animal rescue organization and would like to partner with YHS please use this application. After filling out the application submit it by email to or by fax to 928-515-2380.

Any questions about the New Hope Program can be directed to our New Hope Coordinator by calling (928) 499-9716 or by emailing

New Transportation for New Hope!

The New Hope program is truly a life-saving effort through which hundreds of homeless pets each year are brought under the caring wings of the YHS No Kill Ethic. But it doesn't come cheap or easy.

The New Hope program needs a few things to keep running:

  1. An awesome team who keeps networking with other organizations across the state (see the areas our New Hope program serves on the map below)
  2. Great rescue partners who work together with YHS to save lives
  3. Fuel—it takes a lot of gas to get us over the Arizona mountains!
  4. Transportation

That last one—our New Hope vehicle—gave our program plenty of challenges. The Dodge minivan, which was generously donated and gratefully used over the years, was on its last legs. With nearly 200,000 miles on it, the minivan frequently broke down on YHS staff—a less-than-ideal situation when you have a truck-load of animals with you.

Thanks to the generosity of Petco Foundation, those days are now over and Yavapai Humane Society has two new, dependable vehicles. The spacious vans safely accommodate quadruple the number of transportation crates that we used to be able to accommodate. The fleet is already being used to save more animal’s lives across the state, lend a helping hand and share resources with other rescues, and increase adoptions!

When every animal counts, it’s great to have resources you can count on too! Thank you, Petco Foundation and all the generous donors who supported the initiative to secure improved transportation for the New Hope program!
