Humane Euthanasia Services for Pet Owners
“To provide a safe haven for unwanted or abandoned pets in Pinal County, to return lost pets to their rightful owners, to place animals in loving adoptive homes and prevent the overpopulation of dogs and cats through spay and neuter programs.”
Founded in 1966, Valley Humane Society is a private, non-profit 501 c(3) organization which accepts over 800 unwanted pets each year. VHS pets come to us from owners that can no longer care for them, from Animal Control Agencies that are out of room, and a small percentage are found as strays.
WE ARE PROUD MEMBERS OF
HSUS - Humane Society of United States
NACA - National Animal Control Association
Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce
Did You Know
Many impounded animals in city and county shelters often have only three to ten days in which they are available for adoption, while VHS animals may be sheltered for several months. VHS is a no kill shelter. Located on three acres the VHS shelter cares for up to 50 dogs and 30 cats at a time, and occasionally other pets such as hamsters, ferrets, guinea pigs, rabbits and birds. Each year VHS needs a minimum of $140,000 to provide these animals with basic food, housing, health care and protection from cruelty and other dangers.
Paws To Think
As the only non-profit Humane Society in Pinal County, VHS receives absolutely no public funding from any government source or from any other animal welfare organization, national or local. The shelter survives solely on donations, memberships, sponsor contributions, and the generosity of local businesses and the general public. Share in our vision that healthy companion animals should not be put to death for lack of a home, lack of shelter space or lack of compassion. Please give generously and consider adopting a pet from Valley Humane Society.
