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!
