Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A.

The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. is a private, nonprofit organization and is supported by contributions, grants, bequests, proceeds from pet adoptions, pet licensing and fees for services. Their mission is to provide protection, shelter and medical care to unwanted, abandoned and injured animals, prevent animal cruelty and educate the public about its responsibility for all living creatures. The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. is open to every animal in need. They are a “full access” shelter and no animal is turned away. As a full-access shelter, the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. cares for sick and injured animals and those that are not likely to get adopted. Each day, many pets that are no longer wanted are turned over to the IVHS. The IVHS also accepts pets that people are unable to care for anymore. The society also cares for the many stray animals that are lost, abandoned, and homeless. The IVHS works hard to find loving, forever-homes for every healthy pet, and they do a great job doing so. Since they are a full-access shelter, there is no set time limit for how long an animal will be available for adoption. As long as the animal is healthy, maintains a good attitude, and they have space, IVHS will keep the pet for as long as needed. They provide a variety of services, including:
  • Animal Foster Care
  • Animal Sheltering
  • Adoption
  • Field Service and Rescues
  • Wildlife Rescue/Education
  • Investigations, Inspections and Animal Advocacy
  • Humane Education
  • Licensing Services
  • Veterinary Care Services

This year is a big year for the IVHS! They are kicking off their Getting 2 Zero (G2Z) goal to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals. They are one of the first few shelters in the state of California to start planning to reach this amazing goal! They have already started key aspects of G2Z, like their Community Veterinarian Clinic and Humane Education Programs for youth in their communities. For the past year, they have been working hard to transfer healthy, treatable animals to their partner shelters as well as holding off-site adoption fairs every weekend. They have also partnered with PetSmart in Chino which has adopted out hundreds of cats on behalf of IVHS. It has taken their dedicated staff, volunteers, and community support to get to this exciting point in their history. They need their supporters more than ever and are looking for volunteers, donations, adoptions, or any other help possible to help maximize the number of animals they help. Together, G2Z can become a reality for the animals that need our help. For more information about the IVHS, visit them at their website:, or call them at (909) 623-9777 .
