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

Help the New Hope Program Continue!

This is truly a life-saving program 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--like Lisa--who keeps networking with other organizations across the state (see the areas our New Hope program serves on the map below)
  2. Great partners like the ones listed below who work with YHS to save lives
  3. Fuel--it takes a lot of gas to get us over the Arizona mountains!
  4. A vehicle
That last one--our New Hope vehicle--is the part where YHS really needs your help right now. Our current vehicle is a donated minivan that we have been so grateful for over the years, but it's on its last legs. With nearly 200,000 miles on it, the minivan frequently breaks down on YHS New Hope coordinator Lisa when she's in the middle of a transport--often in remote areas. That situation is less than ideal when she has a truck-load of animals in her care. 
So far YHS has raised almost all the necessary funds to purchase a new cargo van for the New Hope program. We are just $4,000 away. We need your help! Consider making a donation to help us continue this live-saving program and give new hope for pets in need. Every gift--small or large--makes a difference.
