Looking to adopt a new family member? Call for an appointment to visit the shelter and see which furry friend is waiting to leave THEIR paw prints on YOUR heart.
We are currently taking appointments for our Saturday vaccine clinic.
Please call (626) 286-1159 for all appointments.
We are not currently taking any appointments
for spay/neuter services.
We will begin to accept appointments as our capacity increases.
Appointment Based Services
SGVHS has implemented an appointment based system for non-emergency services. Why? The primary benefits are :
Less stress for the animals as the shelter is quieter.
More personalized care for the animals, increasing their adoptability.
Less waiting time for visitors to the shelter.
More personalized service for visitors.
More work satisfaction for staff as they focus on the animals and working for great adoptions or returning the animals to their owners.
Hello my name is Daisy. I am a 2 year old
American Staffordshire mix and I am more than ready to find my forever home. When I first meet you I might be a little shy, it takes a little while for me to get used to new people, but once I am
used to your presence I will want to be petted a lot. I love to go for walks and runs, and play with squeaky toys. ID#49396
Hi, I'm Mario, a calico Abyssinian guinea pig. If you're into cow-licks and hair swirls, me or one of my buddies are the right pets for you. (Luigi and Toad are white Abyssinians.) We're learning to be handled and are getting a lot better!
Hi everyone my name is P.I. Wacket. I am a handsome guy, 1 to 2 years old. I'm the only gentleman cat here, surrounded by young kittens. I would love a home for myself. I must be an indoor cat as someone declawed me before I came to the shelter. I rub on you for attention, but will let you know when I've had enough. I am very vocal and I need someone who understands my patience level. ID#50807
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 ❤️
🐾 PayPal Donations - We understand this is an uncertain time but if you are able to donate monetarily, please use the PayPal link.
🐾 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.
🐾Donate a Vehicle - Donating your car, truck, van, SUV, boat, motorcycle, ATV, RV, trailer or airplane has never been easier!

Found a Healthy Cat or Kittens that Live outside?
Please don't kitten-nap: Watch and wait!
🐾 We have temporarily suspended elective surgeries, which includes spay and neuter and TNR. We will not be accepting cats/kittens that live outside, unless they are SICK or INJURED.
🐾 FIND A LITTER: BE A SITTER! Mother cats often leave kittens for hours at a time, and will likely return soon. Review our Found Baby Kittens map to see how you can help.
