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.

Crab Feed signs are going out today so if you're interested in helping us make this fundraiser a great success -- come and pick up a group of signs. A map will be included so you can document where they are placed, they will need to be picked back up a week from today and returned to the shelter. Areas we need signage put up are in Kennewick and Pasco. Our animals say thank you in advance for your consideration... at least I think that's what BORK means...
