Celebrating 30 Years.
Since 1880, San Diego Humane Society has been providing vital services to animals and people by sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement training classes, investigating animal cruelty and neglect, presenting education programs for youth and adults, and much more. A private, nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other humane society or SPCA has been inspiring compassion and making a difference in our San Diego community for thirty years. Since they rely solely on public contributions, the San Diego Humane Society will be raising much needed funds at the pet event of the season, Fur Ball.
On August 13, over 600 passionate and engaged animal lovers, along their well-dressed animals, will join co-chairs Colleen Blackmore-Reilly and Charna Sugar for a night of fun and festivities under the stars. This year they are honoring Rita and Brys Myers, a long-time donor of Project Wildlife, a program of San Diego Humane Society.
“Fur Ball has typically been an event to celebrate and support pets, but protecting wildlife is now an integral part of our mission. So for our grand 30th year celebration, we would be remiss if we did not also recognize the important role wildlife plays in our environment and in our lives,” Delma Garcia, Special Events Manager for San Diego Humane Society tells Giving Back Magazine. San Diego Humane Society operates campuses in Escondido, San Diego and Oceanside. Recently they have merged with Project Wildlife, the primary local resource for animal rehabilitation, conservation and wildlife education as well as PAWS San Diego, which provides essential pet services and support to low-income seniors, chronically ill and disabled individuals. San Diego Humane Society is dedicated to making San Diego the safest place to be a pet!
