Humane Society leases new Oceanside facility

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Humane Society and SPCA announced Tuesday the lease of a 30,000-square-foot facility in Oceanside that has triple the floor space of its current building.

The lease, on a building less than a mile from the existing facility on San Luis Rey Road, takes effect on Jan. 1. The new headquarters, expected to open to the public in the first quarter of next year, is located north of state Route 76, adjacent to Oceanside Municipal Airport.

The San Luis Rey building is 10,000 square feet and can comfortably handle 200 animals, which will significantly increase the amount of animals that can be housed while providing room for people and programs, according to the Humae Society.

"Caring for and adopting animals -- including lost or stray animals -- is only part of who we are," said Dr. Mark Goldstein, president of the San Diego Humane Society.

"Enriching the community by providing services such as humane education, animal cruelty investigations, and a variety of specialized training courses for companion animals and their owners creates a positive environment and a healthy society."

The Humane Society plans to keep the existing building. It also operates two facilities in the city of San Diego.
