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


Our volunteers come from all walks of life to donate thousands of hours of their time in nearly every PHS/SPCA department, helping animals and people.


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!

A note about national sounding organizations who are currently fundraising in our area: groups like the ASPCA, Best Friends and Humane Society of the U.S. do not help local animals in San Mateo County. Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) is your community animal welfare organization providing care for thousands of animals in San Mateo County. We receive no funding from the national sounding groups, nor are we governed by or affiliated with them. The only way to help local homeless, unwanted, abandoned, and abused pets (as well as local sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife) in this community is by volunteering at PHS/SCPA, adopting from PHS/SPCA or making a donation directly to PHS/SPCA.
