Happy 135th Birthday, SDHS!

Category: Coalition Corner, Winter 2015 372 0

This March, San Diego Humane Society turns 135 (that’s 945 in dog years!) and is celebrating a long history of advocating for animal rescue. Founded on March 10, 1880—just 14 years after the first Humane Society was established in the United States—the organization occupied a number of locations throughout San Diego County before settling on Sherman Street, at the site of a former milk plant, in 1951. San Diego Humane Society and SPCA’s current headquarters, which are on a joint campus with the Department of Animal Services (DAS), was purchased in 2000.
