Find your forever friend at our Center for Compassion in Burlingame, where we have dogs, cats, small animals, and exotic animals available for adoption.


We are currently using a focused recruitment approach to meet the needs of the shelter. Whenever there is a volunteer need at the shelter, we will send recruitment emails to all applicants who meet the basic criteria for the role. Please complete an application here to be added to that contact list. All volunteers need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


PHS/SPCA receives no funding from national groups. Donations made to us stay here to help animals in our community. Your gift makes a difference!

Our A Home for the Holidays Gala will be taking place on November 4th, at the Crowne Plaza in Foster City at 6 pm.

Join us as we raise funds to help our shelter animals find their home for the holidays. With our silent and live auctions, four-course meal, live music, and dancing, we will raise life-saving funds for our Hope Program. The Hope Program provides extra care and attention to sick, injured, behaviorally challenged, and geriatric domestic animals. This incredible program saves almost 100 animals every month.

Tickets start at $200. To purchase tickets click here!
