How You Can Help
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. On average, each year we are able to accomplish the following:
Approximately 500–600 animals have been confiscated by our Cruelty Investigation Department from unsafe environments to protect them from neglect or abuse.
Thousands of children in San Bernardino elementary schools (grades K–6) are 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 are seen at the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley.
There are a variety of ways you can support the HSSBV!

Join the Make A Difference Club!
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!
Bequests & Estate Planning
Your generosity can continue in an extraordinary way by remembering the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley in your will. A charitable bequest in your will or revocable living trust can help ensure a valuable estate tax deduction. You can choose to give cash, personal or real estate property, or a portion of the estate’s value. Please consult your financial advisor with questions and for further information.
