The Benton-Franklin Humane Society was founded in 1966. The Shelter provided animal control services for the cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland until 1999. In 2000 we moved to a new location and became NO-KILL! We keep a very clean and sanitary shelter and are thankful to have such carring staff members and volunteers! We provide spaying and neutering assistance for those who can not afford the cost. We also provide Humane Education in the class room and out. We have several obedience classes available throughout the year.
We are committed to helping those, who cannot help themselves!

Our Adoption Process...
We require everyone interested in adopting one of our pets to fill out a application and talk with a adoption manager. We have several guidlines that must be satisfied before any pet will be adopted out!
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
