PHS/SPCA Auxiliary

PHS/SPCA’s Auxiliary plays a uniquely important role for our shelter animals, raising both funds and awareness year-round! Since 1988, our dedicated group of Auxiliary volunteers have worked to fund vital programs such as education and spay/neuter services, and for several years now have set their sights primarily on helping shelter animals in need through our Hope Program.

To date, our Auxiliary members have raised nearly $4 million through their work on PHS/SPCA’s annual “A Home for the Holidays” Gala Auction. Their efforts to procure silent and live auction items ensure that our Gala continues to be successful each year.

The Auxiliary meets at 10am on the fourth Wednesday of each month. The next Gala event will be Saturday, November 7th, 2020.

We welcome new members! If you would like to be part of a prestigious group that does incredible work to help our animals, please contact Lisa Van Buskirk at 650-340-7022 ext. 327 or
