Mission Statement

To promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of companion animals and to serve our communities.


The Escondido Humane Society provides animal care, adoption, education and protection services to north inland San Diego County. Our mission is to promote responsible pet ownership by teaching compassion, respect, and caring treatment for all living creatures. EHS has a long and rich history of involvement with human-animal relationships, caring for more than 6,000 animals a year and protecting 180,000 more in the field.

We are an open-door shelter, so we take in any stray companion animal within our jurisdictions regardless of age, breed, medical or behavioral needs, or attractiveness to potential adopters. Our donors, volunteers, foster homes, and staff work together to create a safe, loving haven for animals; because of our dedicated community of animal lovers, we are one of few shelters in California who accepts all stray animals and does not euthanize based on length of stay or lack of space. We are committed to providing a safe haven for homeless pets until they can be placed into permanent, loving homes.

Our shelter depends upon animal lovers like you ... every hour donated, every dollar given, and every adoption helps to save a life. Together, we are making a difference ... four paws at time.

Because I love taking care of animals and I have 2 dogs of my own. It will give me more of an experience to work with animals if I volunteered with them and help them.
