News and Announcements


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.

Featured Pets

Rockford 48840 H.jpg

Rockford is a two year old 65 pound Belgian Malinois mix that needs a home with someone who will provide him with love and training. 


He arrived at the shelter fearful of people, causing him to be defensive.  His behavior is consistently improving and he now enjoys interacting with staff and walking with volunteers.  ID#48840


Hello my name is Jupiter!
I was born at San Gabriel Valley Humane Society, along with my 8 siblings. My mom and all my siblings have been adopted and I'm the only one still at the shelter.  I think that makes me really special and the folks here agree!  But I really would like to be adopted and be a part of a family. I am shy and do need some time to warm up to you and feel safe, but am sure with time I'll feel right at home with you. I enjoy doing bunny stuff like eating and hopping and playing with my shelter family. Thank you for considering me for adoption.

Love, Jupiter   ID#45818

Boromir_47368 A.jpg

Boromir  is a young shepherd mix that still has a LOT to learn.  He's shy but has learned his name since he didn't have one before he got here! He's still weary of new people, but he relaxes as he gets to know you. ID  #47368

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.

Found a Healthy Cat or Kittens that Live outside?

Please don't kitten-nap: Watch and wait!

🐾 In order to  comply with the #SaferAtHome directives, we have temporarily suspended elective surgeries, which includes spay and neuter and TNR. Due to this situation, 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. The only time to interfere is when you are sure the kittens are ORPHANED (left alone for over 8 hours), INJURED or ILL, and in that case, please give us a call at (626) 286-1159.

🐾 If you think kittens have been abandoned, you can help support us by raising them in your home!

For more information on caring for kittens, visit the Kitten Lady web site at:  https://www.kittenlady.org/webinar
