Military Support & Resources


The San Diego Humane Society is sensitive to the needs and pressures of our service men and women and their family members - especially their furry ones. The human-animal bond is one like no other, and keeping the care of your pets as a priority is an important part of that relationship. 

We have compiled information and benefits for our animal loving military community. Be sure to see our article library for useful behavior, training and medical articles.

We thank you for your service and hope that you find this information useful.
