Services We Offer

Free Pet ID Tags - These Durable, stainless steel tags are a lost pet's ticket home. Research tells us that a pet will become lost at least once in it's lifetime.

Lost and Found Services - We provide the only centralized "Pet Lost and Found Department" in Navajo and Apache Counties.

Pet Adoptions Spay and Neuter - Our adoption fees include the entire cost of spaying or neutering, a free physical examination by a contracting Veterinarian and vaccinations. In compliance with Arizona State Law, all animals adopted from our shelter must be sterilized.

Animal Rescue - We respond to literally hundreds of complaints about cruelty, abuse, neglect, or injury each year.

Information and Referral Service - We spend as much time as possible reaching out to our community through our teachings of responsible pet ownership. We sponsor annual poster contests within the school districts and offer many students and adults presentations regarding over-population of pets and responsible ownership.

Discount Rabies Clinics - We offer these quarterly to the community to encourage proper vaccinations at a discounted rate.

The Humane Society of the White Mountains was incorporated in 1970 by a group of caring and dedicated individuals who were concerned for the plight of homeless animals in the area. Unfortunately, the beauty of our natural forests compel many irresponsible acts. Pets are often abandoned in the forests by people who truly believe that these domesticated puppies and kittens, dogs and cats will revert back to the wild and learn to fend for themselves. Sadly... they do not.

Those of us who choose to serve and help homeless animals do so because the need is great and will never diminish. Our humane society shelters nearly 3,500 animals each year. Many are rescued from the forest, the streets and from lives of starvation and abandonment through our efforts. The animals we serve greatly depend on us.

We are the only Humane Society in both Apache and Navajo Counties, excluding one small shelter that services the Winslow area. Animals cannot help themselves. They depend solely upon the generosity and compassion of humans. Our humane society is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals. The homeless animals we serve also rely upon the generosity and compassion of our supporters.

Donations make our work possible. What we do for the animals ~ depends upon you.
