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.
