Welcome to the Benton-Franklin Humane Society

~ Tri Cities Longest Standing No Kill Shelter ~

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.





Paws on Parade, in conjunction with Homes on Parade.

The Home Builder’ s Association is including us in their Homes on Parade, the builders have built some very nice dog houses that we get to raffle off with tickets sales going to us. We have tickets available here at the shelter, and volunteers will be at the super secret home locations that have the dog house both the weekend of the 6th and 7th and the 13/14th. We will also be at the big Home Show at Trac Oct 3-5 and that’s where the drawing will take place.
