Oceanside Dog Park Converted to Behavior Center

After much deliberation, San Diego Humane Society has decided to close the Oceanside Dog Park to the public. The park is located adjacent to our Oceanside Campus located at 2905 San Luis Rey Road.  In March, there was a dog-on-dog attack at the park resulting in a death, which prompted us to reevaluate the use of the park. Given our expansion with six additional animal service contracts starting July 1, we believe this park can serve a greater purpose in the rehabilitation of animals in our care.

Our staff will use the yard to exercise, rehabilitate and train animals. This will provide them the enrichment they need to become ready for adoption.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this closure may have caused, and we appreciate your support as we work to improve the welfare of animals and the safety of the public. If you should have any questions, please contact our Director of Government Relations Julianna Tetlow at [email protected].

We are proud to serve the animals and people of Oceanside.
