4,500 Acts of Kindness

The Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley is celebrating their 45th Anniversary serving animals in the community, by honoring Sue Dawson, one of the organizations founding members, with the 4500 Acts of Kindness in Honor of Sue Dawson campaign. Dawson was not only a founding member of the HSSBV, she has additionally served as Executive Director, Board President, board member, donor, volunteer and supporter.

In addition to honoring Dawson, the 4500 Acts of Kindness Campaign is designed to encourage members of the community to do a ”random act of kindness” which benefits animals. Learning about or seeing someone do a random act of kindness could motivate others to engage in their own action helping animals. We are hoping people’s kind hearted actions will have a “ripple effect” and that this campaign will spread kindness throughout our community and beyond!

Some examples of how you can help the HSSBV with an act of kindness are:

  • Recycle bottles and cans and donate the money.
  • Donate newspapers, blankets, towels and pillowcases.
  • Financial donations.
  • Call animal control when you see a stray pet.
  • Report animal cruelty to the Humane Society.
  • Always ask the owner before you pet a dog when you see them out on walks.
  • Donate bags/cans of dog &/or cat food.
  • Offer to pay for vaccinations, spay/neuter for a cat or dog.
  • Volunteer!

Participation is easy! Simply stop by the HSSBV to pick up your sheet of kindness slips or download them HERE You may return the kindness slips to the HSSBV in person, or via email to, mail to: 374 W. Orange Show Rd., San Bernardino CA. 92408 or fax to: (909) 386-1443.

California Pet Lover’s License Plate

Pre-orders are being taken for the new California Pet Lover’s License Plate designed by actor/artist Pierce Brosnan and sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Board.

This fun and colorful plate will not only jazz up your car—it will also help reduce the number of homeless pets in California!

Proceeds from sales of the license plate will go toward funding for free or low-cost spay and neuter surgeries throughout the state, and the plates themselves are a great way to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering while you’re on the go.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles won’t begin production of these plates until it has received 7,500 orders—so far, approximately 3,850 orders have been received. Please consider purchasing a set (or two!) today and do your part to end pet overpopulation and the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy cats and dogs.

Visit to learn more, see how you can help spread the word, and order your own Pet Lover’s License Plates.

Thank you for your continued support of the ASPCA and California’s animals.

The HSSBV mission statement is to prevent cruelty and neglect to animals; to educate children and all members of the community about animal welfare issues; and to provide for the health and well-being of animals with an emphasis on spay/neuter to prevent pet over-population. In order to support these efforts on a local level, donations can be made directly to the HSSBV.

The HSSBV does not receive any funding from government/city/county agencies or any national animal organization. All of our funding is received through private donations, fundraising efforts and grants.

We are now taking appointments for all of our services including vaccines and vet exams. Limited walk-ins are also available. To schedule appointments please call (909) 386-1400.
