Welcome to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society

Our website enables you to search for an adoptable pet, learn more about the RCHS community and educational services, and find out how to donate or volunteer.

Did you know that Rancho Coastal Humane Society was the first in the entire nation to go solar? We encourage you to visit our campus in beautiful Encinitas, which is also home to the Military Working Dog (MWD) memorial and many educational programs for all members of the family.

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is dedicated to the rescue and shelter of abandoned companion animals, encouraging adoptions into loving homes, and promoting humane ideals through education and community outreach.
