The Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) adopted out 56 animals during their Howl-o-ween adoption special from October 23 – October 27; however, during the same period, had 40 strays come into the shelter.
Due to the success of the event and the amount of animals they had come in over the weekend, YHS will be extending the $10 Howl-o-ween adoption special through this Sunday, November 3rd. The $10 adoption fee will apply to all the animals, including purebreds, mix breeds, puppies, and kittens.
"We want to thank the community for their response to our Howl-o-ween adoption special this past week," said YHS Executive Director Ed Boks. "It was so successful that we hope to see the same results this week. You really could not find a better time to adopt than during our Howl-o-ween adoption special."
YHS encourages families to come out and spend some time with an animal and see if it's the right match. Our adoption specialists will be on hand to help you find the perfect pet to bring into your home.
Each animal at YHS is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and examined by a veterinarian before adoption. All adopters must still adhere to YHS' adoption guidelines and application. Normally adoption fees range from $35 to $120 depending on the age and type of the animal.
Dogs and cats are available for viewing at www.yavapaihumane.org/adopt. For more information on the Howl-o-ween event, call 445-2666. YHS is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00am to 5:00pm, Sunday from 11:00am – 3:00pm and is closed to the public on Tuesdays.

The Yavapai Humane Society has been serving Yavapai County's citizens and animals since 1972. YHS has a shelter in Prescott, a Cat Adoption Center in PetSmart, a Thrift Shop and a separate spay/neuter clinic offering low-cost spay/neuters and low-cost vaccinations. In July of 2010, we adopted a "no-kill" ethic which has led to our current live release rate of 96%, making YHS the safest shelter in Arizona.
