Lost &

We understand that losing an animal can be a terrifying experience!  We are here to help!  Click the links on the front page to see the listing of animals currently in our care.  Those animals in the Pasco Facility are on a 72-hour hold, awaiting their owner's return, so we encourage you to check our site often!  Please do not contact us through Petango (our partner site), as we will not receive these messages.

After 72 hours, the stray hold will expire and the animal is eligible to be placed up for adoption.  All animals exceeding a 72 hour hold period will require spay or neuter surgery prior to being placed, whether with the original owner or with a new family. 

It is important to have your pet microchipped and to keep that information up to date.  All animals arriving at our shelter will be scanned for a microchip upon arrival.  The owner listed on the microchip will be contacted about their missing family member.  Having up-to-date information helps ensure we can get ahold of you should your feline or furry friend go missing.  

We understand this is a difficult time for you and your family.  Please understand that is our goal to reunite you and your pet as soon as possible.  After all, most pets are happier and healthier at home than in a shelter environment.  Please trust that our staff will do their best in helping you.        

Adoptable Pets

For a listing of our currently available adoptable pets, please visit the Lost and Found pets on this site or www.bfhs.com.  Please note, not animals list on this site may be available for adoption due to their stray hold period, medical conditions, or other circumstances.  Or friendly staff will be able to advise you of an animals' status during your visit.  

Please note, for the health and well-being of the animals, dog viewings are closed to the public at this time.  All animals currently available for adoption can be viewed on the Benton Franklin Humane Society's website.  Appointments to meet the dogs are available by calling (509) 374-4235 or emailing shelter@bfhs.com.  Due to an influx of calls and emails during this transition, there may be a delay in returning calls or emails.  Please be patient as we work through this process.

Cat viewings are available Monday - Sunday 11am-4pm without an appointment. 


All animals must be altered prior to being fully adopted.


Holds are available for a donation of $25.
