The merging of Project Wildlife with the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA has been completed, the Humane Society announced.
“All animals matter, and we’ve always considered our partnership with Project Wildlife vital to providing care to all animals in need, not just those who are our home companions,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, president and CEO of the Humane Society. “We’ve worked together for many years to transport injured animals and connect citizens with crucial wildlife services, so integrating our teams was a natural step.”
According to the Humane Society, Project Wildlife had struggled to secure consistent funding for its lifesaving programs.
In the spring, Project Wildlife would take in up to 300 injured or sick animals each week and, as the only local emergency trauma center for injured wildlife, always had to keep its doors open.
The San Diego Humane Society has already combined forces this year with the Escondido Humane Society and PAWS San Diego, which served elderly and low- income residents with their pet needs.
