It is with heavy heart we announce the passing of Sue Dawson.

A bright light and strong advocate for the humane treatment of animals has left our community. Sue Dawson, co-founder of the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley, passed away Saturday, February 27th, surrounded by her loving family. Sue was a powerful voice in the San Bernardino community who dedicated her life to end animal suffering and create a world of compassion, without animal cruelty and neglect. Over the last 45 years, she served as Executive Director, board member, volunteer, advocate and passionate supporter for the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley. Sue had been valiantly battling lung disease for over a year, but her concern for animal welfare and her love for animals never left her heart.

She reminded all of us to be good stewards for animals and to end the overpopulation of animals, which only left thousands of homeless and unwanted animals. She taught us to live by example and be the voice for the animals, who could not speak for themselves. She never stopped her passionate love for animals because she believed humanity could only improve when we end the indifference and apathy toward animal suffering. Through legislation, advocacy and community outreach, she worked tirelessly with Joyce Martin and others to create a voice for animal welfare; and, as a result, the Humane Society in San Bernardino Valley was born. Since then, thousands of animals have been saved from abuse and neglect through HSSBV spay/neuter programs, cruelty investigations, humane education, and low cost vaccination and medical services. Sue has left her mark in our community and our hearts. We will miss her tremendously and it will be up to us to continue her legacy. Her voice is now our voice.

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.
