    Thousands of animals have been helped by both organizations.

    The North County Humane Society and the San Diego Humane Society have announced plans to join forces.  The merger will bring together new resources for animal welfare services.

    "We're extremely excited about this process," North County Humane Society director Julie Bank told the North County Times.

    "It's not a done deal," Bank said, but she said "our collective boards have agreed to merge in principle."

    San Diego County Humane Society President Mark Goldstein, a veterinarian, told the paper that he was "99 percent sure" that the merger would go through.

    Both organizations would work under the name San Diego Humane Society and SPCA. No one is likely to lose their jobs as a result of the merger and the new organization would continue to provide animal control services under contract to Oceanside and Vista, Bank and Goldstein said. Bank said Goldstein would head the new organization while her role has yet to be defined.
