The Humane Society of Imperial County serves all of Imperial County. The Imperial Valley Humane Society believes it is important to place as many adoptable pets as we possibly can into loving forever homes.

About Our Shelter:

We offer a wide variety of services to our community: We take in stray, abandoned, and unwanted animals, we hold daily adoptions (all day long) at our shelter, weekly adoption events, we offer a low cost spay and neuter program to the public, we provide a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program for feral cats, take and provide information for those who inquire about lost and/or found animals and questions pertaining to Animal Control.

We work with several different shelters and rescue groups outside of the Imperial Valley. We try to send out as many of our animals as we can to ensure that our animals get a second chance at a happy, healthy, and long life. They more than deserve it!

Come Meet our Pets:

Our shelter is open 9 am to 5 pm Monday thru Thursday and Saturdays 9 am to 2 pm. We also hold adoption events at Pet Kingdom in El Centro and Petco at the Imperial Valley Mall.

Our Adoption Process:

Dogs & Puppies - $140
Cats & Kittens - $75
The adoption fees include all animals being up to date on all vaccinations (including rabies), being spayed or neutered, and one free health examination with a local veterinarian. A signed adoption contract is required.

*If a dog or cat that you wish to adopt is too young to be spayed or neutered you may 'foster' the animal until their surgery can be performed. During this period we maintain ownership of the animal until the surgery is performed and you sign the adoption contract.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
