Wish List

Thank you so much for caring about the animals! Below is a list of items our animals currently need. Unfortunately we can only accept the items listed below. Sadly some donated items, especially household items, not on our list take up much needed shelter space and we have to use vital funds to pay for their removal and disposal. We greatly appreciate your understanding!

You can help the animals at PHS/SPCA by bringing any of the following items to our Coyote Point location (12 Airport Blvd. in San Mateo) during shelter hours:

11 am to 7 pm, Monday through Friday
11 am to 6 pm, Saturday and Sunday

Questions? Please contact Heidi Oakes at 650-340-7022, ext. 394 or email her at hoakes@phs-spca.org.
