Every Friday for the month of October between the hours of 9:00-1:00, the Yakima Humane Society (YHS) will host a drive through vaccination clinic at Yakima Humane Spay & Neuter Clinic, 106 S. 6thAve .

The low cost drive up clinic provides convenience as well as economy, offering $15.00 Rabies shots, $10.00 Annual Vaccinations and  a $10.00 Bordetella vaccination (kennel cough) and no appointment is needed.

Earlier this year the Coronavirus put the kibosh to the YHS top fund raiser, the annual Fur Ball & Gala Auction.  It's been rescheduled for April 3, 2021 at the Modern Living Building at State Fair Park.

In the meantime, you can help out the Yakima Humane Society by watching the YHS telethon on KAPP 35 television - October 23 from 7 to 8 pm.  It's called A Paws for Celebration and it will be hosted by me and former Yakima Mayor Micah Cawley.  You'll learn more about the mission, the people and the day to day activities at the society and of course you'll have a chance to donate to help them help the animals in Yakima.  You can also donate at various locations around the Valley.
