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.



Pancakes for Puppies!

Everyday starts better with a good breakfast. Well, what could be better than a good breakfast that help the homeless animals too? Nothing!

Applebee’s in Kennewick (on Columbia Center Dr.) is letting Benton Franklin Humane Society take over the joint for two hours, we’ll feed you and in turn you are helping us feed animals! With special guest volunteers, the Tri Cities very own Atomic City Roller Girls! May or may not be on skates, that’s kinda early for the girls!

For the bargain price of $8.00 you get a generous breakfast buffet and coffee!
