Dec. 10, 2010 - PRLog -- Inland Valley Humane Society (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [S.P.C.A.]) employees are now occupying their new headquarters. Inland Valley Humane Society ( opens their doors to every animal in need in the Inland Valley providing animal foster care, sheltering, adoption, rescues, education, inspections and advocacy, licensing, care, and volunteer services. Their new home is located on their existing site, located at 500 Humane Way in Pomona, California.

Leading design firm, Ware Malcomb (, provided architectural and interior design services for the Inland Valley Humane Society’s (IVHS) 12,345 square foot two-story build-to-suit office and pet adoption facility. The building is composed of private and open office, training facilities, pet store, pet adoption, and pet informational spaces.

IVHS's vision was to create a building that evokes a “home away from home” feel.   The design achieved this through the use of materials such as plaster exterior, wood trellises, shade structures, and brick pavers, as well as warm earth tone colors. The final design fuses residential styling with office functionality to provide the desired, welcoming environment.

The project is pursuing LEED® NC Gold Certification from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).  Sustainable design elements include:
   Porous concrete for on-site water filtration
   Certified cool roof system
   Water efficient landscape system
   Low flow plumbing fixtures to reduce consumption by more than 40%
   Green label carpet
   Designated fuel efficient vehicle parking spaces
   Roof mounted Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels
   Designated recycling area
   Demolition material recycling program to recycle more than 75% of generated waste
   HVAC exceeding Title 24 Energy Standards by more than 14%
