Burrowing Owl Program
In 2019, through a partnership with the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Agency, permitted through both Federal and State wildlife regulation agencies, Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA opened its first on-site Burrowing Owl Program to “head-start” baby owls so they could grow into healthy and strong adults. Once mature, the owls will be released to the wild where they can breed and help increase the number of local Burrowing Owl populations.
The Burrowing Owl Program has been enormously successful with batches of owls being returned to the wild.
Our Burrowing Owl Program is funded entirely by donations and if you want to be a part of helping this species please visit www.PHS-SPCA.org/donate or contact Lisa Van Buskirk at 650-340-7022 ext. 327 or LVanbuskirk@PHS-SPCA.org.
