Kitten Nursery

"Kitten Season" Never Completely Ends at PHS/SPCA...

Peninsula Humane Society’s kitten nursery is opened annually when the onset of kitten season is such that we cannot manage the numbers of incoming kittens through our foster program (a program we operate year ‘round), and we close it each year when that number of incoming kittens drops to a level we can manage through foster care. Further, when the nursery closes, the room is not closed but rather is repurposed to help adult cats with behavioral or medical problems.  Bottom line, we help kittens, cats, dogs, puppies, rabbits, guinea pigs, native wildlife, etc. every day of the year. We accept responsibility for all of these animals in San Mateo County (wildlife come to us from SF through Northern Santa Clara County) every day of the year. To become a foster parent, please contact Brian Probst at 650/340-7022, ext. 328 or To donate, please contact Lisa Van Buskirk at 650/340-7022, ext. 327 or

If you found an underage kitten/s (underage is defined as “still nursing and less than 8 weeks old”) and plan to care for the kitten/s on your own, please use our “Getting Started” link below to help you on this journey.  We provide starter kits at our 12 Airport Blvd location, and they are also available at most pet supply stores. This link is guidance only for individuals who have found a stray kitten and want to keep the kitten and provide care on their own; it is not guidance for PHS/SPCA foster volunteers: Fostering Kittens: Getting Started
