    Adoption fees do not completely cover the cost of care. The Escondido Humane Society incurs an average expense of $450 per animal. Charitable contributions to our center allow us to keep our adoption fees low.

    The Escondido Humane Society is an independent nonprofit organization. We do not receive funding from the County of San Diego or any national organization. We rely on donations and adoption fees for our continued service to animals and the community.
