The Humane Society of Yuma is a non-profit, 501c3 organization that was incorporated in 1963. The mission of the organization is to reduce the number of homeless pets through rescue, adoption and spay and neuter programs. HSOY sees the worst of the worst with regards to the animals in our community. Severely neglected, injured, abused and unwanted animals enter our facility daily with over 8,100 animals entering our shelter yearly. As we continue to spay and neuter over 4,500 animals a year we are confident that we will continue to decrease the amount of animals that enter our shelter on a daily basis.
Our mission as the Yuma Territorial FFA Alumni is to promote youth in technical education in all of the Yuma area high schools. With more than 650,000 members nationwide, the FFA encourages youth to be a part of something bigger than themselves. With that comes some cost. Some of the local members can’t afford the $60 for an official jacket and tie. We support all students in need of the funds so that they don’t feel inadequate borrowing a jacket from the chapter closet. We provide coaches, advice and supplies so that our students have all of the information to win at state and national level events.
