The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society is a private, non-profit shelter.
The pet of your dreams can be found at your local shelter. We have lovable dogs, cats and frequently bunnies of all sizes, shapes, and ages. You have an excellent chance of finding the perfect companion to match your family’s lifestyle. We have purebred and mixed breeds-– many of whom have already lived with families and are "move-in" ready!
Our shelter animals are healthy and affectionate, and have been well socialized by staff and volunteers. All cats are house trained. All dogs will need some training to learn the ins and outs of your new household. Fortunately, many resources are available from books to TV shows. The time you put in working with your cat or dog at the beginning to make them comfortable in your home will pay off for many years to come.
Our shelter has been caring for and finding homes for animals of the San Gabriel Valley for 90 years. The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society is committed to provide a compassionate environment for the well-being of the animals in our care. With the dedication of our staff and volunteers, we strive to find permanent, loving homes for all of our companion animals and provide opportunities to enhance the animal/human bond.
Our core values are: compassion integrity respect professionalism teamwork. We have close ties with our communities, and many adopter families return to us for another pet.

The Society's Founder was Mrs. Fannie Thompson Kessler, a preacher’s daughter from Elkhart, Indiana who became a fearless, female trailblazer. Born before the Civil War, in 1859, and widowed in 1895, she married Warren Kessler, a successful businessman, in 1905. She was hardworking and well-traveled. Fannie became an outspoken advocate for animal rights. She organized the American Animal Defense League to combat cruelty in the training of animals for vaudeville, movies and circuses. In 1924, at the age of 65, she founded the Alhambra-San Gabriel Humane Society, which provided services for both farm and domestic animals. The shelter doubles in size when its neighbor property was donated in the interest of Fannie’s humanitarian work. Today, the SGVHS focuses on the care and placement of family pets.
