This includes transferring in animals from overcrowded areas. WVHS is staffed by an average of 32-40 employees and relies on the care and and support of our dedicated volunteers and foster parents. Since our founding in 2011 we have served tens of thousands of domestic animals ranging from dogs and cats to chickens and pigs.
The mission of West Valley Humane Society is to reunite animals with their families and to pave the way for the next generation through public outreach, promotion of the human-animal bond, community engagement and humane education.
Our vision is to be a model of excellence in advancing animal welfare and promoting responsible pet ownership.

How the Adopt From Home Program Works
At West Valley Humane Society, we know that the shelter environment is not always a good fit for our pets. The transition from a home environment where they are comfortable to a shelter environment can put a stress on their health and behavior.
Animals that are adopted from a home environment tend to be happier, healthier and have less behavioral concerns than pets in a shelter environment. The Adopt From Home program allows an owner or foster to adopt an animal out from the comfort of a home.
For animals to participate in the Adopt From Home Program the following must happen:
• The pet must be brought to the shelter to be vetted and evaluated.
• If the pet has any medical records like spay/neuter history or vaccine records, please bring them.
• Pets would leave the shelter in the care of their owner or caregiver as a foster home during the adoption process.
• For pets that are already altered: we will evaluate the animals health and bring them up to date on vaccines and parasite treatment. Staff will make the animal an account, post them as available for adoption on our website and send them back to the comfort of a home.
• For pets that are not altered: we will evaluate the animals health, bring them up to date on vaccinations and parasite treatment and spay/neuter them prior to adoption. They would then go back to the comfort of home while waiting for adoption.
• Animals available for adoption would be promoted by the shelter as well as caregiver in order to get them adopted into a new and loving home.
