Facts about Missy

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 35451186
  • Hair: Medium
Hello, I am beautiful young Missy. My long white and black coat is real soft. I enjoy pets on my head, but not on my back, which is sensitive. Of course I'm playful, and I love to chase things and play with feather wands. I also enjoy a little brushing. It would be best if you let me come to you for attention, since my desire for contact can vary from time to time. I will do best in a home with adults. I will need the gift of time when I am adopted. This means I need to go home with folks who are understanding and patient, and will give me plenty of space and time to adjust to a new place.

Receive $50 off Missy's adoption fee (which may mean the adoption is free!) through our Seniors Program which matches pets with senior adults (60+ years). Some restrictions apply.

All of our lovely felines are on the 'buddy system' with only One adoption fee for Two Purrfect buddies!

About Yavapai Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Yavapai Humane Society (YHS) is proud to save over 4,000 lives each year and maintains a 95% live release rate, making us one of the safest shelters in the country.

YHS has contracts to care for animals brought in by animal control officers from Prescott, Prescott Valley and Yavapai County.

YHS is not associated with the Humane Society of the United States and is dependent on the generosity of local donors. The facility has the capability of housing 270 animals. We are often filled to capacity but with the help of our foster families, we are able to house additional animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Choosing to adopt a four-legged family member is an exciting and rewarding experience! YHS is here to partner with you to find your new companion, answer all your questions, and provide lifetime support for you and your pet’s relationship.

LOOKING FOR LOVE: We offer adoptions every day of the week. Visit one of our locations to meet our animals, or search our website for up to date animal profiles. When a pet's listing says they are in our foster care program, please call to schedule a meeting. We rescue new animals every day, so check back for updates!

MEET AND GREET:
For dogs: An adoption counselor will take you and a pooch out to the dog park where each member of your family (including children) and your resident dog (if you already have one) can get to know each other and play. These on-site dog-to-dog introductions are conducted by our Adoption Counselors and take place in Buffy's 'Get Acquainted' Dog Park. Keep in mind, the best matches are made between animals that have both been spayed or neutered.

For cats: We have a meet and greet room with toys and a cat play area.

GET THE DETAILS: We will share what we know about the animal(s) you’re interested in and answer any questions you might have about bringing an animal home. Our adoption counselors have many tips on how to make the pet's transition to a new home a positive one. Get answers on questions you might have about approaches like crate training, exercise, slow introductions, training, and more.

FINALIZE THE ADOPTION: Allow about 30 minutes for the adoption paperwork. We'll go over your information, register your microchip, set up 30 days of pet insurance and make sure you understand the information in the adoption packet. Adopters must be at least 18 years of age and have photo identification. If you rent, please bring your lease agreement, stating that animals are allowed. Sometimes we'll need a vet tech to check how a spay/neuter incision is healing and give you medical advice. Dogs and puppies must go home with a leash and collar. We have some for sale in our lobby gift shop or you can bring your own. Minimum donations (listed below) help us pay for the care of the 300 homeless animals we shelter every day. We appreciate cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover or YHS gift certificates.

To encourage this, there is only one adoption donation for the two buddies. GREAT NEWS! All of our cats and kittens are on the buddy system!

Seniors Program: Matches pets with senior adults (60+ years) for $50 off the adoption fee (some restrictions apply).

Pet of the Week: Each week we waive the adoption fees of a few wonderful pets who need some extra exposure to find their perfect homes.
