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!

Donate Your Vehicle

Everyone knows that animal lovers and people who appreciate a nice craft brew go together like hops and barley, so we’re celebrating both for a second year! Help raise funds for our shelter animals while you taste delicious samples from local craft brewers (and few wineries), all while your pups enjoy hanging out with their favorite people in the summer sun.

Join the party on June 22, 2019, at West Washington Park in Burlingame. Meet with adoptable animals, enjoy lounging in the grass, and listen to great music all while mingling with our favorite kinds of people – ones who love pets as much as we do! To purchase tickets please click here


Join us for our Kitten Nursery Shower on May 18!
