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 not currently scheduling New Volunteer Orientations, and are instead focusing on specialized recruitment to meet the needs of 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, and keep an eye on this page for updates.


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!
