San Diego Humane Society: Inspiring Compassion Since 1880

Since 1880, San Diego Humane Society has inspired compassion by helping people and animals. Originally founded to protect children and horses, the organization has expanded to meet the needs of the region by rescuing animals in distress; saving companion pets, farm animals and wildlife; and, providing resources to keep pets with their families. The most recent accomplishment is maintaining zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals in San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition shelters.

Gary Weitzman, DVM, joined the San Diego Humane Society as their President and CEO in May 2012. He is a licensed veterinarian and an accomplished animal welfare professional with more than 25 years of experience.

Serving as a community advocate is very important to Dr. Weitzman and he is committed to collaborating with individuals, rescue groups and organizations to identify innovative solutions to do more for animals and their people.

A significant focus for Dr. Weitzman and the San Diego Humane Society is a new initiative called “Getting to Zero” – it involves a comprehensive plan to save the life of every healthy and treatable animal in San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition shelters.
