Wish List

As most of our animals are currently residing in foster homes during shelter-in-place, items from our foster kits are greatly appreciated and most needed at this time. Don’t forget to use Amazon Smile when you shop, and select Valley Humane Society as your charity beneficiary at no additional cost to you.  Check out our Amazon wish list!  Thank you for your help!
