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.

Hey there Kitten Lovers! If you've ever had an interest in fostering a litter of kittens but have not had the opportunity, the support, or the supplies needed, consider attending Benton Franklin Humane Society's Foster Parent Training on Wednesday April 26th at 2:30pm.
Keep in mind that fostering doesn't take much, and if you've got love in your heart, a bathroom, den or other small space you can dedicate to your litter and some time - you might just have what it takes!
We will go over things like: the Highs and Lows of fostering, what's in the Baby Bag provided to foster parents, the guidance you'll receive from your Foster Mentor and everything else that BFHS's New Foster Program has to offer.
The impact that fostering adorable furballs goes way beyond the litter in your home by freeing up precious kennel space in area shelters, making room for animals in our community who desperately need housing and care. It also keeps baby kittens out of the shelters high-traffic areas when their brand new immune systems may be susceptible to illness or disease.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided along with a Foster Manual packed with information about Maternity Care, Socialization, and Common Ailments etc. Call the Front Desk at (509)374-4235 to reserve a spot! We would also be happy to answer any questions you may have or give you more information via Direct Message or email [email protected]!
