About Give Humane

Give Humane: San Diego Humane Society's Day of Giving is an annual fundraising movement that unites our entire community to make an impact for animals in need by supporting the work of San Diego Humane Society.

Your support during Give Humane will help provide animals in our community with safe shelter, lifesaving veterinary care, protection from cruelty and neglect, rescue during natural disasters and emergency situations and so much more. We are San Diego’s largest safety net and go-to resource for animals and the people who love them, but the incredible work we do each day is only possible with our entire community’s help. Your gift today is the reason we can be there for more than 40,000 animals in need in the coming year. And thanks to several generous sponsors, your Give Humane donation will be doubled! Please give now to save lives.

About San Diego Humane Society

San Diego Humane Society, an open-admission shelter, is creating a more humane world by inspiring compassion and advancing the welfare of animals and people. Our lifesaving programs and services have helped San Diego become one of the largest cities in the United States to keep healthy or treatable shelter animals from being euthanized, and we are committed to Staying at Zero euthanasia year after year. We are a private, independent, nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other humane society or society for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

With campuses in El Cajon, Escondido, Oceanside, Ramona and San Diego, we provide animal services for 13 cities within San Diego County. We not only care for more than 40,000 pets and wild animals annually in our communities, but also share the expertise we have gained through our innovative programs with shelters nationwide so they can save more lives in their communities.

While our influence is expanding nationally, our top priority is meeting the needs of the San Diego region. We provide exceptional care for all animals through world-class veterinary medicine, shelter and most of all, love.

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

Thank you for helping to save animal lives!
