San Diego Humane Society is a non-profit animal welfare organization committed to ending animal homelessness. We have been saving animal lives and serving the community for 138 years and we’re proud to be the safety net for 90% of our region’s lost, abused and neglected animals. We also provide care for 12,000 injured and orphaned animals each year with the goal rehabilitating and returning them to their natural habitat. San Diego is home to more than 320 animal species, each uniquely contributing to the beautiful environment that we call home.
SDHS will be a refuge to 50,000 animals this year, and we put no time limit on how long animals remain in our care — a pet stays available for adoption as long as needed to find a loving home and wildlife as long as needed to heal.
We’re in this together. Help us create a more humane San Diego.
Together we can make San Diego a safe haven for animals. We count on the community to adopt, spay/neuter, rescue, volunteer, donate and live in harmony with the wildlife in our community in order to achieve our mission.
In turn, pet owners can rest assured that they’re not alone in the care of their pets. San Diego Humane Society is here as a resource for every stage of your pet’s life. So whether you need training support, essential pet care, tips and information, financial assistance, when it’s time to say good-bye to your beloved pet and even when you need help with living cohesively with wildlife, we’re with you every step of the way.
