San Diego Humane Society is the safety net for 90% of the San Diego region’s lost, abused and neglected animals. Funds raised through the Photo Fundraiser will support the organization’s ability to provide shelter and medical care for companion and wild animals, prevent cruelty and neglect, educate the community, help people in need keep their pets and so much more.
