The San Diego Humane Society will hold a $40,000 matching donation campaign Giving Tuesday from the Resource Partners Foundation on Nov.30 aimed to save animals in need. 

All gifts received by 11:59 p.m. will be doubled. Giving Tuesday is a global charity movement aimed to inspire people and organizations to transform their communities by giving back. 

Every donation will provide animals with a safe shelter, lifesaving medical care, behavioral training, rescue from cruelty and neglect and more. The San Diego Humane Society has reopened it’s campus to the public after implementing virtual adoption processes and appointment based services in 2020 to maintain social distancing and safety. 

As an essential service provider, the organization has remained open to helping animals and the people who love them. The public can now report animal-related emergencies around the clock with the San Diego Humane Society with a 24/7 Dispatch Call Center.

In the past year, the San Diego Humane Society adopted nearly 14,000 animals, placed more than 5,200 animals in foster care, and provided relief to overcrowded shelters and rescues by welcoming 224 dogs. Meals have been provided to 1.3 million pet meals and additional supplies to families who needed help.

This past year, Humane Law Enforcement Officers rescued more than 5,700 animals and brought them to safety. Under the direction of California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the San Diego Humane Society became one of the first in California to rehab mountain lions with the intention of releasing them back into the wild. 

The San Diego Humane Society has opened a Raccoon Nursery and rehabilitated 87 orphaned raccoons to return into the wild, took in six orphaned bear cubs for care and rehabilitation at its Ramona Wildlife Center and deployed its Emergency Response Team to the Caldor Fire in South Lake Tahoe, rescuing more than 70 pets. 

Members of the public who wish to make a donation to the San Diego Humane Society on Giving Tuesday must visit or text “match” to 50155.
