We Value Your Support!
Thanks to your tax deductible donations, and the dedicated efforts of our wonderful volunteers and staff, the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley is able to help thousands of animals and people. Last year alone, the Humane Society did the following:
- 10,624 cats and dogs were spayed or neutered at our low-cost hospital to prevent pet over-population.
- 59,716 vaccinations were given to protect animals from disease.
- 5,728 medical exams were given to animals who otherwise might not have received care.
- 623 animals were confiscated from unsafe environments to protect them from neglect or abuse due to our cruelty investigation program.
- 1,300 complaints of animal abuse and neglect were investigated.
- Thousands of children in San Bernardino elementary schools (grades K-6) were reached with our message of compassion for all living creatures through our humane education program. We believe this early instruction is integral to helping them become more responsible companions to their pets and teaches them to be advocates for kindness in their communities.
- More than 85,000 animals were seen at the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley.

Donate Your Car to Help Us Help Animals!
Call 1-866-628-CARS (2277) to start the process today! The Humane Society is pleased to partner with Vehicles for Charity to create an opportunity for our donors to support us through the donation of their car. You may also begin the process by accessing the on-line donation form at www.vehiclesforcharity.org.
Vehicles for Charity accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, recreational vehicles, campers and more. They provide free pick-up at your home or office and will provide documentation that you need for your tax records. 100% of the net funds generated from the sale of your vehicle will go to the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley. Before making your donation, be sure that you have a clear title with your name listed in the owner’s section, without assignment or transfer to another person; your car keys; and when you call or complete the on-line form, your title and current mileage in hand. Your vehicle will be picked up between two and four business days and you will be contacted by the towing company to arrange for pick-up.
If you are planning on buying a new car in 2014 make a donation of your old one and make a difference for the animals!
If you give to the United Way through your company you can designate the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley to be the recipient of your monthly contribution. In addition, you can check with your employer to see if they have a matching gift program to help your donation go further.
Can You Help Make a Difference?
The Make a Difference Club was created for the purpose of giving our donors the opportunity to make monthly contributions to help fund our Humane Education and Cruelty Investigation programs, neither of which are income-producing and yet are so vital to the welfare of animals in our community, now and for years to come.
Last year, we reached more than 10,000 children with our message of compassion for all living creatures, and were enabled to investigate calls of suspected abuse or neglect which led to the rescue of hundreds of dogs and cats from unsafe environments. Thank you for being a part of these life-changing programs. You really will make a differ- ence for animals through your support.
