The San Diego Humane Society

For over a century, the San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) has been leading the way in animal welfare, rescuing and rehabilitating homeless pets, preventing overpopulation, and finding forever homes through adoption programs in their Southern California community. But their impact goes beyond pets. With wildlife care and rehabilitation programs, SDHS gives injured and orphaned creatures a second chance. Their cruelty investigations team works tirelessly to protect animals from harm and bring justice to those responsible.



Education is key to the SDHS. Community members can learn responsible pet ownership through their courses and become the best pet parents they can be. And for those worried about finances - their low-cost veterinary services ensure top-notch care for all pets, regardless of means. With campuses throughout San Diego, SDHS serves a wide area, raising awareness and building a compassionate community through outreach initiatives and partnerships with local businesses.

 

Rancho Coastal Humane Society

At Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS), they provide animals with the love and care they deserve. Their personalized pet adoption process ensures that every shelter pet finds their perfect forever home. They take the time to understand the unique needs of each animal in their care.

But their work doesn't stop at adoption. RCHS's Foster program allows them to expand the shelter's capacity and give even more animals a safe space. And for teens looking to make a difference, their teen foster program not only helps animals but also earns them service hours for school.



Education is also key at Rancho Coastal and they're passionate about teaching responsible pet ownership and preventing animals from ending up in shelters. They offer captivating school presentations and animal camps, aimed at inspiring kids to care for animals and make a positive impact.


Since its founding in 1960, RCHS has been a dedicated force in the San Diego community. From their humble beginnings on a dirt road in Encinitas, California, they have grown to offer a range of services that truly make a difference in the lives of animals and their human companions.


 


Dogs on Deployment

At Dogs on Deployment, they are dedicated to helping military members by connecting them with compassionate volunteers who can provide temporary boarding for their beloved pets. Their mission is to give these heroes peace of mind, knowing that their furry friends are in good hands while they serve their country.


Founded by veterans Shawn and Alisa Johnson in 2011, Dogs on Deployment was born out of their own experiences as a dual-military family. They recognized the need for a program like this and set out to make a difference.

Dogs on Deployment serves all branches of the military, including active duty, National Guard, and Reserve components. Their goal is to ensure that military members have the assurance that their pets are well cared for while they are deployed.


 

Shelter To Soldier

At Shelter To Soldier, they live by the motto of saving two lives at a time. Their mission is to rescue dogs from local shelters and transform them into psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans who suffer from PTSD, TBI, and other service-related injuries. With their unparalleled expertise in training service dogs, they are dedicated to honoring the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country.



Every person's experience with mental health conditions is unique, and the way they respond to treatment varies. However, many veterans who have been matched with a service dog have reported significant improvements in symptoms like anxiety, depression, isolation, and nightmares. Sometimes, just having a furry companion by their side can give a veteran the confidence to leave their home and re-engage with the world. This is why the work of Shelter To Soldier is so important and with Fetch The Sun being a veteran-owned company, it is very near and dear to our hearts.


 

Frosted Faces Foundation

At Frosted Faces Foundation, their mission is simple yet powerful - to help senior animals find the love and quality care they deserve. They are a compassionate non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that these beloved animals receive the family and veterinary attention they need, even when finding them forever homes poses a challenge.


But that's not all they do. In addition to providing exceptional care for senior animals, they have programs that support families in need, ensure the well-being of pets after their owners pass away, and even offer senior dog boarding and daycare services. Frosted Faces rescues senior animals in the Southern California area, where their lives are typically in danger. Located in Ramona, CA, they are conveniently accessible from anywhere in San Diego


Their journey began with founders Kelly and Andy, who started by volunteering at a shelter and fostering dogs in need. They noticed a recurring pattern - they were often fostering senior dogs who had been returned to the organization. This realization drove them to create a special network for these seniors, who require unique care and attention. As their cause gained momentum, Frosted Faces Foundation was established as a non-profit organization in 2014.

 

Helen Woodward Animal Center

Located on a beautiful 12-acre facility in Rancho Santa Fe, California, this renowned center offers a wide range of services that benefit both the community and our furry friends. In addition to running an exceptional animal shelter, the Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) also hosts a variety of programs and events throughout San Diego County.


Prepare to be amazed by the adrenaline-pumping Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, where daring dogs hit the waves alongside their adventurous humans at Del Mar Dog Beach. Once a year, HWAC is host to PAWMICON, a doggie-friendly Comic Con. Witness the cutest costumes, playful puppy mingling, and an assortment of vendors selling everything your furry friend desires.



But their contributions don't stop there. HWAC also provides valuable services such as wildlife education, therapeutic horse riding, and Ani-Meals, a program dedicated to supporting pets in homes facing financial difficulties.
