The shelter is a great place to adopt pets from, the staff is friendly. My only negative is lack of response when reporting animal neglect. I have reported my neighbors dog as being neglected for over a year now & nothing has improved. I know they have been out to talk to my neighbors, but the only change is now the dog is chained up in the front yard with about 4 feet of chain no water & no shelter. It won't get hit by a car now, but this is cruel. Also, the dog is pregnant for a second time in the past year. Not sure what are terms for removing this dog from this home, but I would think, no shelter & no water would be considered neglect & cruel. I am at a loss as to what to do & it breaks my heart to see this dog so badly neglected.

Peninsula Humane Society serves the animals in San Mateo county. They do great work for the animals that are homeless and without family to care for them. You can come and browse for animals that are put up for adoption.

This is a very nice shelter to look for that special pet if and when you are ready to adopt. They have all the animals (dogs and cats) on the web so you can see what animals are available. They are a kill shelter so before you come here to surrender any animal you should try to place your animal in another shelter.

The Peninsula Humane Society is a place we will stop by on the weekends with thekids. We bring them old blankets and other items that they can use for the animals. We then do the dangerous thing and look at all the animals- we always find one we should bring home.

We lost one of our dogs a couple of years ago, and the Peninsula Humane Society was so very helpful in helping us to find "Kiwi", they provided us with posters that we could post around the neighborhoods to find our pet. They also have a system for you to check on daily to see if your pet has been found or not. BY THE WAY WE DID FIND "KIWI" AND SHE WAS SO HAPPY TO BE BACK HOME WITH US... They also have many animals that can be adopted into good homes. Give them a visit you won't regret it.

The animal shelter is always clean and I have never had a bad experience here. i have used the spay/neuter clinic a couple of times and everyone there was always helpful. They could do a little better in the way they house all of the animals.

Peninsula Humane Society's lead animal cruelty investigator Debra (Debi) Denardi is a breeder and seller of golden retrievers. Her purebred puppies are sold under the term "adoption". See her website below:

I didn't give PHS a better rating because of they way they keep their cats. Each cat is in a tiny little "cage" and I think they could do a lot better for the cats by keeping them in larger areas that have lots of activities for them to do. Pets in Need does this as well as San Francisco and I think in this rich County, PHS could do a lot better. It is so sad to see these cats in tinly little cages for so long. Otherwise, the dogs seem to have adequate kennels that are kept clean and they are walked by volunteers. The staff is great and the volunteers are awesome.

This animal shelter is nice and well kept. The people in charge know what they are doing. They are really nice and polite. If you want to adopt, this shelter has birds, cats, dogs, rabbits, and hamsters. There is also a room where you can play with the animals before adoption.

This is a great shelter from which to adopt a pet. Even better for when you find an injured wild animal. The wildlife rehab department is fantastic. I'm not sure I would recommend taking your pet to be spayed or neutered at this particular facility (see a vet for that), but it's a really good shelter. They even offer classes in training your dog and grief counseling if you've lost your pet.

I have been to this shelter a couple of times and the place is pretty clean. They animals look like they are well taken care of. The different sections and rooms for animals are clean. It's nice that there are small rooms where you can take the animals to get to know the animal better. The workers there are nice and informative. Overall I give this place 5 stars.

The PHS is well operated and the animals seem to be as comfortable as they possibly can in their situation. I am particularly fond of rabbits and the PHS has a room dedicated to small animals such as rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs. The volunteers are kind to the animals and are helpful when approached. It's a good place to visit if you are interested in adopting a pet and saving a life!
