San Diego Animal Advocates is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501©3 animal rights organization founded in 1984. Our purpose is to educate the public on issues concerning animals, with a focus on problems of captivity, vivisection, and local area wildlife. While we work primarily on matters in our San Diego area, we also coordinate efforts with national animal protection groups and participate in many state-wide and national campaigns.

In the face of California's severe ongoing drought, it's time to finally make the connection between animal-based diets and devastating water shortages. 47% of California's water footprint is associated with meat and dairy (Pacific Institute), despite the fact that vegetarian diets require half the water (UNESCO) and each person eating a vegan diet saves 600 gallons of water per day (National Geographic). Help others make this urgent connection! Restaurant signs, lawn signs, and informative factual leaflets are available at
