Escondido Humane Society
The Escondido Humane Society provides animal care, adoption, education and protection services to north inland San Diego County. Our mission is to promote responsible pet ownership by teaching compassion, respect, and caring treatment for all living creatures. EHS has a long and rich history of involvement with human-animal relationships, caring for more than 6,000 animals a year and protecting 180,000 more in the field.
The Escondido Humane Society is an open-door shelter, which means we take in any stray companion animal within our jurisdictions regardless of age, breed, medical or behavioral needs, or attractiveness to potential adopters. Our donors, volunteers, foster homes, and staff work together to create a safe, loving haven for animals; because of our dedicated community of animal lovers, we are one of few shelters in California who accepts all stray animals and does not euthanize based on length of stay or lack of space. We are committed to providing a safe haven for homeless pets until they can be placed into permanent, loving homes.
