Our Programs

Auburn Valley Humane Society has a vision to be a model of excellence in the advancement of animal welfare. In that vein we seek to enrich the lives of companion animals and people through animal sheltering, programs, services and community engagement. Please see below for some of our programs.

 

AVHS Thrift Store

Open 7 Days a Week, The Thrift Store & More has a dealer consignment area featuring antiques, jewelry, specialty items, and other collectible treasures. All proceeds benefit the lost and abandoned animals at the AVHS shelter as well as the programs provided by the Auburn Valley Humane Society.
 

HUMANE EDUCATION

We offer a variety of Humane Education Opportunities through:

Girl Scout Badge Program

Shelter Buddies Reading Program

Senior Pets for Seniors

Pet CPR and First Aid

 

VOLUNTEERING

Volunteers are an integral part of our organization. Volunteers augment what the staff are able to accomplish while caring for the animals at the shelter and thrift store.

FOSTERING

Foster parents are needed for our cats, kittens, dogs or puppies.

Foster parents provide space, food and love for their foster pets. The AVHS shelter will provide the foster with all of the other supplies, medications, and equipment needed throughout their foster experience.
