Prescott Chamber of Commerce

The Prescott Chamber of Commerce is designed to provide you with a significant amount of information about our beautiful, idyllic community. We call Prescott “Everybody’s Hometown” because most people find something here that reminds them of where they grew up. To many, it is the historic County Courthouse, tree-lined plaza and surrounding shops in the downtown area. To others, it is the overall small-town charm and hospitality. People are friendly here, and you’ll notice it no matter where you are in our community.

Coconino Humane Association

It is the mission of the Coconino Humane Association to operate a humane and caring shelter that will give aid to unwanted, abandoned, and mistreated animals in Flagstaff and across northern Arizona. It is our goal to investigate cruelty and take appropriate action, to disseminate information of humane treatment of animals, and wherever possible to foster humane education throughout the northern Arizona area. We pride ourselves on being a voice for dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals in Coconino County.


Yavapai Humane Association

Early in 1972 a small group of interested citizens of Prescott, Arizona met to form a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. They named their new organization the Yavapai County Humane Society and on March 27th of that year incorporated under the laws of the State of Arizona. Lou Silverstein was one of the original founding members of the Yavapai Humane Society and first signature on the papers of incorporation.

Their purpose:
• The development, promotion, and maintenance of a humane society in the city of Prescott and surrounding area of Yavapai County for the prevention of the cruelty to animals.

• The operation and maintenance of an animal shelter including but not limited to, boarding and medical facilities, and an animal adoption center.

• The promotion of all animal welfare, including legislation.
