San Diego County humane societies merge

The board and management leadership of the North County Humane Society and San Diego Humane Society recently announced the decision to merge and are now completing steps to accomplish this merger before the end of the year.

The combined organization will be called the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA. NCHS’s North County facility on San Luis Rey Road in Oceanside will operate under the name San Diego Humane Society and SPCA, North Campus.

Accordingly, the merger is prompted by the desire of both NCHS and SDHS to combine the talents of their respective staff, board members, volunteers, donors, facilities in central San Diego and Oceanside, and members of their communities to work together for the welfare of animals and people in the San Diego region and to strengthen the human-animal bond.

“This merger will bring additional resources to advance animal welfare services provided by the two organizations,” NCHS Executive Director Julie Banks said.

Other benefits of the merger include:
- More treatable animals’ lives will be saved in our respective communities as a result of the merger.

- The merger will bring additional resources to bear on animal welfare services provided by the two organizations.

- Increased services for individual pet owners when they are faced with the challenges and difficulties of separating from a beloved pet.

- Create a more compassionate community by bringing forward and enhancing lifesaving education programs for both children and adults.

- Work together to ensure that both owner-relinquished animals and stray animals receive the same standard of veterinary medical care as owned pets in our community.

Dr. Mark Goldstein, DVM, CAWA, and President of SDHS, will serve as President of the new SDHS organization, and the SDHS senior management team will oversee the staff and operations of the new organization.
Bank will become part of the new SDHS following the merger. In addition, two members who now serve on the NCHS Board of Directors will be appointed to the Board of Trustees of the new SDHS organization.
