Community Partner: San Diego Humane Society

Serving San Diego County for 138 years, San Diego Humane Society’s scope of social responsibility goes far beyond helping animals find loving homes. We offer a wide range of programs and services that strengthen the human-animal bond, prevent cruelty/neglect, provide lifesaving medical care, rehabilitate local wildlife, educate the community about the humane treatment of animals and provide safety-net services for pet families in need.

On July 1, SDHS began providing animal services to six more cities throughout our region, dramatically increasing the number of animals who will rely on us for help.

This year SDHS will take in and provide exceptional care for 50,000 animals through world-class veterinary medicine, shelter and most of all: love.

Through lifesaving programs that lead the way nationally in innovation, SDHS inspires compassion for all animals – companion and wild – in San Diego County and beyond.

With campuses in San Diego, Escondido and Oceanside, SDHS has extensive reach for animals throughout our region. In addition to caring for animals in our communities, we are committed to sharing the expertise we have gained with shelters nationwide so they can save more lives in their communities.
