The Humane Society of the Desert was founded in 1961. It began with a simple concept...help those who cannot help themselves. To thousands of abandoned and neglected Dogs, Cats, and Horses, this became more than a simple concept...it became their second chance in life!

Today, we are the largest animal sanctuary in So. California, with a nine acre scenic facility and an Animal Hospital located in Desert Hot Springs that provides state of the art veterinarian services for our animals and the community.

Sharing the Dream and the dedication to saving lives. The Humane Society of the Desert continues to Making a Difference,
