Yakima Valley Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and adoption of unwanted, neglected, or death row dogs and cats. We also provide assistance to families who can no longer care for their pet, or who find a stray they cannot keep, or by providing less expensive spay/neuter and vaccination alternatives.
In addition, we provide pet owner and spay/neuter education through our many events around the valley and state. We believe that prevention of unwanted puppies and kittens is the most critical way to reduce the number of animals that suffer hunger and neglect, or that die in shelters. PLEASE have your pet spayed or neutered to help solve the pet overpopulation crisis in Eastern Washington!
Our primary objectives to meet our mission are:
Yakima Valley Pet Rescue invites you to our Board Meetings held the first Thursday of each month. We meet at 6:30 P.M. at Jackson’s on Tieton Drive and 48th Ave (meeting room in back). Our meetings are open to anyone interested in saving pets in the Yakima Valley. Bring your ideas, suggestions, and any questions you may have about pet rescue in the Yakima Valley. We look forward to seeing you there!
