Who We Are

  HDAC is a coalition of people from many different backgrounds. We want to change the idea which exists - saving a few animals and euthanizing the rest - we want to save them all!
 
  Our mission is to bring the NO KILL EQUATION to San Bernardino County one shelter at a time.

The NO KILL EQUATION is a simple formula providing community education about the importance of vaccinating your pets and electronically chipping your pets, while bringing free or affordable spay & neuter clinics to rural and low-income areas. By doing this, we are minimizing the amount of animals that would end up in local shelters.

The High Desert Animal Coalition will work hand-in-hand with our shelters and help network our foster groups and animal sanctuaries.

Our Mission

We promise to speak for those who have no voice, we seek transparency and cooperation from our city and county shelters.  We are allies to our local law enforcement and will work to ensure, those who commit crimes against animals, are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
 
  We will work closely with politicians to ensure that stricter laws are created to protect animals and the prevention of animal abuse and to see that those who break the law will be held accountable and prosecuted accordingly.

2017

High Desert Animal Coalition (HDAC) was officially registered as a non-profit in 2017 by retired fire-fighter Diley Greiser. Diley noticed the animals in her San Bernardino and High Desert community needed help and vowed to make a change. She was able to gather a group of volunteers and partners to help those without a voice.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) estimates the Yearly Pet Overpopulation of Dogs and Cats as follows:

The biggest form of animal abuse is the euthanasia of healthy adoptable animals.
