The Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley is celebrating its 50th “Golden Paws” anniversary!

Formed on March 16, 1970 by San Bernardino resident, Joyce Martin (and friends) HSSBV’s mission has been to prevent cruelty and neglect to animals; to educate children and all members of the community about animal welfare issues; and to provide for the health and well-being of animals with an emphasis on spay/neuter to prevent pet over-population. This mission is accomplished by their many programs and services for the community, including the low cost veterinary clinic, humane education program and cruelty investigation program.

In honor of this milestone anniversary we have several special programs and events to celebrate all year long!

The following financial assistance programs will be available for pet owners in our community to take advantage of:

The HSSBV Financial Assistance Program:
Open January through October of 2020 (or until funding lasts), low income pet owners who qualify will receive financial assistance with the medical needs of their pets thanks to a generous $10,000 grant from The Banfield Foundation®. Please visit the “Veterinary service” page for the qualification information and application.

Assistance for Seniors
The Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley currently has funding available for Senior Citizens to assist with the cost of veterinary services for the care and treatment of their animals. These funds, made possible by a grant from The Albert and Anna Herdina Memorial Fund at The Community Foundation, Strengthening Inland Southern California through Philanthropy, are open to residents of both the Riverside County, San Bernardino County and the High Dessert who are 66 years of age and older, and who have a maximum income of $1,700 a month for one person.

California Pet Lover’s License Plate

Pre-orders are being taken for the new California Pet Lover’s License Plate designed by actor/artist Pierce Brosnan and sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Board.

This fun and colorful plate will not only jazz up your car—it will also help reduce the number of homeless pets in California!

Proceeds from sales of the license plate will go toward funding for free or low-cost spay and neuter surgeries throughout the state, and the plates themselves are a great way to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering while you’re on the go.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles won’t begin production of these plates until it has received 7,500 orders—so far, approximately 3,850 orders have been received. Please consider purchasing a set (or two!) today and do your part to end pet overpopulation and the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy cats and dogs.

Visit to learn more, see how you can help spread the word, and order your own Pet Lover’s License Plates.

Thank you for your continued support of the ASPCA and California’s animals.

The HSSBV mission statement is to prevent cruelty and neglect to animals; to educate children and all members of the community about animal welfare issues; and to provide for the health and well-being of animals with an emphasis on spay/neuter to prevent pet over-population. In order to support these efforts on a local level, donations can be made directly to the HSSBV.

The HSSBV does not receive any funding from government/city/county agencies or any national animal organization. All of our funding is received through private donations, fundraising efforts and grants.

We are now taking appointments for all of our services including vaccines and vet exams. Limited walk-ins are also available. To schedule appointments please call (909) 386-1400.
