Tree Trimming
Monday, November 24, 2014
In a few weeks, many of you will be trimming a tree inside your home when you get other holiday decorations out of storage to deck your halls. Please also consider trimming trees outside your ...

Black Friday
Monday, November 17, 2014
We’re going to make Black Friday something different and relaxing for you. I’ve got my family covered. We’re taking the kids, hot cocoas in their tiny hands, to a Christmas tree farm where we’ll chop down a tree. ...

Monday, November 10, 2014
Many San Mateo County residents probably think of PHS/SPCA as the “dog and cat” place.  Dogs and cats are our most common visitors, but not our only ones, by far.  For example, we do quite a bit with birds...

What's in a Name?
Monday, November 03, 2014

Keep Senior Cat Healthy
Monday, October 27, 2014

Monday, October 13, 2014
Some people who come across stray dogs want to help, but they are either in a hurry, have kids in their car, or are slightly afraid of making contact with an unfamiliar dog.  We get it. ...

Monday, October 06, 2014
We ask people to bring their dog to meet one of our dogs, but don’t ask the same of cat owners looking to adopt a second cat. Dog/dog introductions often tell us if they will be good together by the dogs’ body language and actions. We start this process with both dogs on leash. ...

Urban Mushing
Monday, September 29, 2014
We received this message:  “My neighbor is using his dog to pull a sled through the neighborhood. I consider this animal cruelty.”  She attached a video clip, posted on YouTube by the dog’s owner. ...

Monday, September 22, 2014
One of the truly fantastic parts of my work is that I get to play matchmaker every now and then. This past week, I introduced neighbors and a friend’s mom to the new loves of their lives.  ...
