how you can help

Many of you have asked how you can help during this time so we put a list together below. Most importantly, ADOPTIONS are still being coordinated! Please call us at 626-286-1159 between 8am and 5pm to discuss the adoption application and make a Meet & Greet appointment. Thank you all and please be safe ❤️

🐾 Amazon Wishlist - Our Amazon wishlist is updated frequently to reflect the items we need most. We are ALWAYS in need of non-clumping cat litter; we are also still in need of sensitive food for dogs (see wishlist). As a precaution, we will not be accepting in-person donations until further notice.

🐾 Amazon Smile - The shelter will receive 0.5% when you select San Gabriel Valley Humane Society as the charity of your choice through Amazon Smile. All products, prices, and shopping features remain the same at no extra cost to you. Every bit counts!

🐾 WoofTrax Walk For A Dog App - This is a FREE app for your phone that can be used to raise funds for the shelter just by walking your dog. The app counts your steps similar to a Fit Bit. Download in the App Store.

🐾 Ralph’s - Sign up for Ralphs Community Giving Program, and designate SGVHS (NPO 94102) as your donor organization. The shelter will receive a percentage of eligible purchases every time you use your Ralph’s card!

🐾Social Media - Please share, share, share! We are relying on social media now more than ever to bring our adoptable animals to the attention of their future furever families. Follow us on Instagram @sgvhumanesociety and please subscribe to our YouTube channel, SGV Humane Society.

🐾 PayPal Donations - We understand this is an uncertain time but if you are able to donate monetarily, please use the PayPal link on our website.

Featured Pet


Louie is a beautiful German Shepherd who was surrendered to the shelter when his family moved and could not take their dogs with them.


Louie has been nervous and unsure of shelter life, but with the patience and help of staff and volunteers, he is starting to become more comfortable and confident. Louie, who is just shy of 5 years old, seems to enjoy receiving affection and can be a very loving dog. He seems to not have much experience walking on leash, so he could use more training to improve his skills.


If you are a fan of German Shepherds and have the time, patience and love to build Louie's confidence, come and meet this beautiful dog.
