Pets & People is now focused on the adoption of pets currently in their program. They are not rescuing from the City of Yukon. Unfortunately, the City shelter does not have its own adoption program because Pets & People has provided that service free of charge for 24 years.
We share premises with the Yukon Animal Shelter.
At the shelter, donations of dog food, blankets, treats and toys are always needed and appreciated, in addition to monetary contributions. Thrift Store at 322 Elm in Yukon welcomes shoppers and donations for the shelter’s pets.

Pet Adoption League (PAL) IS A NO-KILL shelter
The founder of the Yukon Pet Adoption League claims nine citations filed against her since March for harassing and trespassing at the shelter are part of a plan by the operators of the nonprofit to drive her off her own property. Until recently, Pets and People accepted as many pets abandoned at the Yukon city side of the shelter into their adoption program as they could handle and afford. But they could not take them all.The humane society has invested $210,000 in the original construction and expansions of the city animal shelter facility. The city and Pets and People do not share staff and resources, as incorrectly stated by Garman. The city of Yukon is responsible for maintenance of the city building.The Yukon Animal Shelter is at capacity and there is concern over whether there's enough SAFE space to care for all the animals. The Yukon Animal Shelter shares it’s building with Pets and People, a no kill rescue group.
