My friend Doris recently lost her dog of almost 15 years. Her little dog, a PHS/SPCA “alum,” was a true companion and, naturally, left a huge empty space in Doris’s life when she passed. She visited our new adoption center a few days after putting her dog to sleep and was literally overwhelmed with conflicting feelings.  ...

Dogs Good with Cats
Monday, June 22, 2015
I’ve fielded this question (or one very similar) many times: I’ve been thinking about adopting a dog who will get along with cats, since I have one at home. When I visit your adoption center in person to see the dogs, can someone tell me...

Around this time, ever year, visitors begin asking "Are your kittens in yet?" Our Adoptions staff joke that they feel like sales associates at Macy's who get questions about the new season’s line of swimwear.  ...

Grooming Savings
Monday, May 11, 2015
Want to save $400 to $500 every year?  If you have a non-shedding dog, consider grooming at home. Murray, the curly-coated guy in the photo, doesn’t shed and requires regular grooming.  This may be why he was

Our area is loaded with pet lovers who become frantic when their dogs go missing. And, the Bay Area is also home to many tech entrepreneurs. It's only natural that tech people have been working on ideas ...

Where Do Donations Go?
Monday, April 27, 2015
Hey, have you seen our commercial on television? You know, the one that shows the dog with super sad eyes looking directly at the camera from behind the cold metal caging and the sad song from that famous singer...
