Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A.

The doors to the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. are open to every animal in need. Because they are a "full access" shelter, no animal is ever turned away.  As a full-access shelter, the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. takes in sick and injured animals and those that are not probable candidates for adoption. Everyday dozens of pets that are no longer wanted are turned over to the caring hands of IVHS; every day they accept pets from people who are unable to care for them anymore; and everyday their doors open for the dozens of stray animals that are lost, abandoned and homeless. At the core of the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. is their obligation to care for these animals.

They work vigorously to find new, loving and permanent homes for every healthy pet, and do a great job at it. Because IVHS is a full-access shelter and never deny any animal entry, there is no set time limit for how long an animal will be available for adoption. As long as the animal is healthy, maintains a good disposition and they have space, they'll keep a pet for an indefinite period.
