Programs and Services
Serving the San Diego County community since 1960, RCHS is well known for companion animal rescue, care and adoptions, however; the mission is so much more. At RCHS we believe in keeping pets and their people together, especially during times of need and crisis. Programs and services that offer critical support include the Animal Safehouse Program for victims of domestic violence, seniors and military veterans, Humane Education for children and teens, the Community Pet Food Bank, Pet Assisted Therapy, Pet Loss Support Program and the Veterinary Care Program for low-income seniors.
At RCHS we believe in the strength of the human-animal bond and that saving lives and promoting animal welfare is a collective effort requiring compassion and perseverance. Your donation will make an impact by giving homeless animals a second chance and helping RCHS assist pet owners in need.
