Humane Society to waive adoption fees at local shelters

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Humane Society’s annual Day of Giving fundraiser will be held at its three campuses Thursday.

During its largest fundraiser of the year, the society will waive animal adoption fees and instead accept donations.

  • San Diego campus, 5500 Gaines Street
  • Oceanside campus 2905 San Luis Rey Road
  • Escondido campus 3450 E. Valley Parkway

The fundraiser is Thursday from 8 a.m. to midnight.

Beginning July 1, San Diego Humane Society will become the animal service provider in six additional cities: Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego, Santee and Solana Beach. This is the biggest milestone San Diego Humane Society has achieved in its 138-year history, which will increase the number of animals it cares for from 30,000 to more than 50,000 each year.
