SPCA Humane Society
The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA is a rare bird in our field! We're among just a handful of humane societies and SPCAs, worldwide, which extend caring services to sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Our patients come from San Francisco through northern Santa Clara County and include hawks, ducks, geese, songbirds, seabirds and mammals. In addition, we give local residents humane solutions to their urban wildlife conflicts and treat animals impacted by environmental disasters, such as oil spills. While rehabilitating animals, we keep human contact to a minimum so as not to imprint, then release them. Typically, we successfully rehabilitate 1, 200 to 1, 400 animals each year, vital work made possible by generous donations.
