Mission Statement

The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA's mission is to promote the humane treatment of animals, prevent cruelty to animals and provide education to enhance the human-animal bond.

The work we accomplish would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers. We have three locations, employ over 300 staff and rely on more than 2,000 volunteers for their time, love, and support.

Compassionate, dedicated volunteers are needed in all areas of our shelters.


Serving San Diego County for 123 years, the agency provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for adoptable animals and for owned animals through public training classes, investigating animal cruelty and neglect, providing adult and youth education programs, sharing animals through pet-assisted therapy, and rescuing animals in emergency situations. A private nonprofit organization that receives no public funding, the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, and some fees for service.

Would you recommend San Diego Humane Society - Escondido?

While we agree that San Diego Humane and SPCA does some good work to help animals, the things they do to hurt animals can not be excused because of good acts committed in other cases. First, this organization has a $60,000,000 war chest. They do not need your money. They pay their managers ridiculously high salaries and benefit packages that are far above average for the area. Recently it was discovered that a horse rescue in San Diego County was buying rescue horses with thousands of dollars in donation money to cover their purchase and maintenance (for 2 months) but then taking them back to their facility and shooting them. They were never offered for adoption and some even had adopters try to adopt individual horses that were still callously shot anyway. A few days later they would be back at the auction buying more horses with donation money that were then also shot or eventually disappeared. The evil rescue is HiCaliber Horse Rescue.
