The Benton-Franklin Humane Society, located in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State, is a private, non-profit organization supported solely by contributions. BFHS is dedicated to preventing cruelty to animals and the creation of a more responsible and humane community. We operate an Adoption Center and No-Kill Shelter in Kennewick, Washington.
Although we have hundreds of members and dozens of volunteers, we are really nothing more than a single person saying “Yes, I want to help.” On this website you’ll learn how to adopt a pet, report animal cruelty, lend a helping hand to animals, and much more.
BFHS is not affiliated with any other local or national organization and receives no tax dollars; our work is made possible only by the generosity of people like yourself.

"We adopted Pablo in November (formerly named Othello). He is our little boy now! We live in Cle Elum on the Yakima River. He LOVES the snow, we almost renamed him snowplow because he loves it so much. He also loves all the other dogs he gets to play with in the neighborhood and snuggling by our woodstove. Thank you so much for letting us take him home and join our family. We can't imagine life without him." -- Ali and Alex (@aliannamarie)
