Here’s what’s been going on at Inland Valley Humane Society and S.P.C.A.

What is something you are really proud of as an organization? Our overall mission as an organization is something we are extremely proud of. Our staff and volunteers strive to treat the community and their animals as extensions of our own family. We make every effort to ensure the animals in our care are returned home or find permanent placement in new loving homes. In addition, we offer a variety of programs to assist those who are experiencing financial hardship by providing them with pet food, vaccinations, spay services, etc.

What is something that makes your shelter unique? Unlike many local shelters, our organization is a member of the SPCA (Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). This means we have sworn Humane Officers who receive extra training and accreditation to ensure they are able to properly and thoroughly prosecute those who cause injury, harm or even death to an animal in our community.

What is a program that you run that is really important for people to know about? Through our generous donors, we offer many low to no cost veterinary care options for the animals in our community. These programs include but are not limited to the Pit Stop, Chihuahua Challenge, and Big Meow. These programs include spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and microchip registration. In addition, our TNVR (Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Release) program provides spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and flea treatment at no cost for community cats in our service area.

Can you share a story of a specific pet you helped recently? Queenie was brought to our shelter, scared and unable to use her back legs. She was suffering in pain. Our veterinary staff examined her and determined Queenie had a broken pelvis, likely from being hit by a car. Surgery for Queenie was complex, and a feline Orthopedic specialist was brought in to assist Inland Valley Humane Society and S.P.C.A. Her surgery was a success. After many months of physical therapy and recovery, Queenie has found her new family in her forever home.

How many donors do you have? 10,000.

To what extent are pet license fees contributing to your overall budget? Approximately a third of our budget is contributed from our licensing.

What is something you are raising funds for? The Lewyt Medical Center, located at the main campus on the Inland Valley Humane Society and S.P.C.A., is the state-of-the-art veterinary hospital and wellness center committed to providing quality and affordable health care for pets in our community.

Do you have any specific advice for pet owners that you’d like to share? Did you know that less than 1% of animals entering shelters are wearing any type of identification? Many times, this lack of ID prevents an animal from finding its way back home. Through our, pictures of the animals in our care our uploaded for visitors to see. However, up-to-date licensing and/or microchipping are critical for quick reunification.

Is there anything else you want to let us know so we can get the word out? Our organization is filled with compassionate, animal-loving staff and volunteers who strive to provide the best possible service to the residents and animals in our community.
