|Animal Foster Care|
The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. also operates a progressive foster care system for animals that are either too young or too sick to be kenneled with the rest of the shelter population; and we work daily with dozens of breed-rescue groups who help us find homes for harder-to-place animals. Everyday we are committed to doing everything in our power to avoid euthanasia of healthy animals.
However rigorous our attempts are, we are still faced with the daily crisis of over-population and the reality of this is that there is not enough room to accommodate every animal. Because of this we are forced to compassionately euthanize those animals, mostly cats, which are not chosen for adoption. In addition, we sometimes must perform euthanasia on aggressive animals that cannot be rehabilitated and are deemed a threat to the public, as well as animals that are extremely injured who are not treatable.
