Center for Compassion

The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA had been in dire need of a new home for our vital work. With a final push from supporters, that home opened in September 2011 and has transformed our adoption experience. Adopters, visitors, animal lovers and peers use words like warm, inspiring, creative and fun to describe our privately-funded Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Rd. in Burlingame.  Adoptions are just part of what makes our Center special. We offer peeks into behind-the-scenes work for kittens, dogs and wildlife, and a one-of-a-kind hands-on learning space for kids.

To learn how our Center for Compassion became a LEED-certified green building, click here. Our old facility at Coyote Point is still a vital part of our organization and essentially serves as our intake shelter. Click here for a quick overview of programs, services and functions for our two sites.

Donations of any amount will support our new shelter. If you have any questions about donating or our naming opportunities, contact Lisa Van Buskirk at or by calling 650-340-7022 ext. 327.
