Shelter News 

2014 is fast becoming a ‘year to remember’ in the shelter’s  long history.   We are beginning a renovation of our facility that draws on our unique history and will showcase the original spanish style architecture of the properties owned by our founder Fannie Kessler.  In 1924, after becoming a strong proponent of animal welfare and the humane treatment of all animals, Fannie officially incorporated the Alhambra-San Gabriel Humane Society, now known today as the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society.

Our plans are to restore the entrance of our property including  the Shelter’s original garden and guest entrance to use as our customer service and educational center for welcoming visitors.  Our animal intake will be housed in a separate facility behind the kennels.

We are very excited about our vision for the future and how it will further our mission of finding permanent loving homes for all the animals in our care.
