The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is an independent 501(c)(3) organization and is not affiliated with any other local, state or national organization such as the Humane Society of the United States in Washington or the ASPCA in New York. Because there are so many humane organizations with similar names, it is not uncommon for supporters of one humane society to mistake it with other humane societies and SPCAs. The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is dependent solely on financial support from our community and donors.
A private, nonprofit organization that receives no government grant
funding, the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA is supported solely by
contributions, grants, bequests, investments, proceeds from the Humane
Society’s retail store, Muttique, and fees for service.
