PHS/SPCA is open every day except major holidays.

If you are looking to adopt a new companion or bring us a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal, please visit our new Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion, located at 1450 Rollins Rd., Burlingame (x street Edwards Ct.). Hours are 11 am to 6 pm.

If you are looking for a lost pet, if you find yourself needing to surrender an owned pet, if you have found a stray or if you have an appointment at our Spay/Neuter Clinic, please visit our Coyote Point Shelter location at 12 Airport Blvd., San Mateo. Hours are 11 am to 7 pm Monday-Friday and 11 am to 6 pm on the weekends.

Members of the public can bring donated items to either facility and they can also purchase a San Mateo County license or microchip at both locations.
