Guardian Angel Program

Because we receive no government funding, the existence of the MBHS and our animals is totally dependent upon the generosity of the community. If 400 people would pledge to donate $20 a month, the future of the Shelter and our animals would be secure. As a Guardian Angel, your name will be displayed on our Guardian Angel board at the Shelter, and you will receive a car decal showing your caring commitment to our homeless pets. To become a Guardian Angel, simply send us a monthly check for $20 or more payable to the Morongo Basin Humane Society, or you can go to our website,, and pay via PayPal. You may also choose to make a yearly payment of $220 or two semi-annual payments of $110.

Who We Are

We are a non-profit, no-kill shelter in Joshua Tree, CA. We exist on donations, the modest fees we charge, and an occasional grant. If you would like to volunteer, come to the Shelter and fill out a short form, and we'll put you to work walking dogs or playing with cats. Many volunteers spend one-on-one time with each of the dogs at the shelter to give them some playtime outside of their kennels.

Adopting a friend

The Morongo Basin Humane Society always has many adult dogs and cats to choose from, and we often have puppies and kittens. Before going to their forever homes, all of our animals are microchipped, given age-appropriate vaccinations, and spayed/neutered to help keep the animal population down. We require that all potential adopters fill out an application before any animal is adopted. Our adoption application can be found on our website,
