Updated on December 23, 2011

Adopting a pet is a noble move and one that is much needed. Every single day hundreds of pets are abandoned, abused, neglected and relinquished by owners who no longer want or are no longer able to care for them. If you are looking for a pet - consider an animal rescue or animal shelter - this move could help save a life.

San Diego Pet Adoption - Humane Society & SPCA

The humane society offers respite for homeless and abandoned animals throughout the San Diego area. With the number of animals left uncared for there is always a lot of purrfect and mans best friends to choose from. Each and every one of these dogs and cats deserve a second chance at life and place to call home and if you choose to adopt a dog or cat through them you will be providing these animals that second chance that they deserve. If you are only interested in adopting certain dog breeds or cat breeds they also partner up with other rescues and organizations that may have exactly the breed you are looking for.

The main San Diego pet adoption location for the humane society and SPCA can be found at:
