Pet Guardianship Program Offers Peace of Mind for your Pet’s Care

Have you thought about what will happen to your beloved pets should something happen to you? Our pets are family, and just as we make provisions to ensure our children will be taken care of, we should do the same for our pets.

Yavapai Humane Society established the Pet Guardianship Program to help put your mind at ease knowing your furry family member(s) will be taken care of and loved by our staff, while we find them their new forever home.

By enrolling your pet(s) in this program, you can feel confident knowing they will be looked after under the care of our no-kill ethic facility in the event of your passing.

Whether your pet is a dog, cat or horse, YHS will take full responsibility for the care of your pet and will adopt them into a loving home with a new family who meet the select criteria set by you. We take great care in finding the right home for your beloved pet.

You will fill out an enrollment form for each pet with their complete details, including their personality, their likes and dislikes, what they’re afraid of, if they get along with other animals or kids, dietary preferences, what lifestyle they are used to, their medical history and more, all to make the transition as stress-free as possible for them.

When you register for our Pet Guardianship Program you will have access to a dedicated line with a YHS staff member if you have questions or are no longer able to care for your pet(s).

You will receive a magnet for your refrigerator, a window cling and a wallet card that will alert people of your enrollment in the program. In addition, we include a tag for your pet showing they are in the Pet Guardianship program with our dedicated phone number.

For more information or to enroll your pets in the Pet Guardianship Program, please contact Gina Angueira, our Donor Development & Grant Manager, at 928.445.2666, Ext 118.

All we ask in return is that you maintain a yearly gift to Yavapai Humane Society and to specify a bequest, of any amount, to YHS in your will.
