Kitten Nursery Shower
Saturday, May 30, 2015 | 12pm - 3:30pm | Center for Compassion

Watch volunteers syringe-feed tiny kittens, ask our Nursery "mom" about our life-saving work, learn about volunteering, and enjoy special treats from Baked Beauties.

Shower gifts appreciated! Our kitties need: Fox Valley Kitten Formula, KMR (liquid ONLY), baby wipes (no perfumes or lotions), newspaper, paper towels, straws, pipe cleaners, flea combs, cotton balls, ping pong balls, wash cloths, small bowls, heating pads (without auto-off), Desitin, Chicken Soup Wet Kitten Food, and Mitchum's deodorant. Our first floor Furchandise store will have many of these items for purchase during the shower!

Shower some love on our available cats by adopting Friday, May 29th through Sunday, May 31st. We'll be waiving the adoption fee for all cats with an umbrella symbol on their kennel card!

Tellington TTouch© Training for Dogs
Weekend Workshop June 13-14, 2015 or Three-Day Training June 13-15, 2015
Coyote Point Shelter

TTouch© alleviates common behavioral issues, gives new tools for improving your animal's performance and pleasure, and deepens the relationship between you and your animal. The Weekend Workshop will cover the principles and basic skills of hands-on and movement work. The class will put TTouch© techniques into practice in addressing the specific needs of the dogs that are present, which may include reactivity, barking, fearfulness, inappropriate behaviors, and apparent inability to learn. The Three-Day Training includes the Weekend Workshop plus advanced techniques. Dog trainsers may earn CCPDT CEU's by attending either the worshop or training.

Attendees are permitted to bring their dog. Registration for the Weekend Workshop is $275 and the Three-Day Training is $400 (early-bird discounts available). For more information, click here or contact Instructor Sage Lewis at 612/817-4473 or


Dog Body Language & Play: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly (hosted by A Dog's Best Friend)
Saturday & Sunday, August 15-16, 9am-4:30pm | Coyote Point Shelter

When is play over the top, or even dangerous? Can you tell when a dog is simply defensive or rude and bullying? This seminar will offer insight into dog-to-dog, dog-to-human, and human-to-dog communication. This is an in-depth look at canine body language, and how we can better understand what our dogs are telling us.

Sarah is one of the most sought after international speakers on "all things dog" and has spoken for the Association of Pet Dog Trainers in the United States, Australia and New Zealand as well as shelter, veterinary and training conferences throughout the world.

This seminar is $175 for both days if registration is received by April 15th ($195 after April 15th). Price includes snacks, refreshments, and lunch on both days. This seminar will be held at the PHS/SPCA Coyote Point Shelter at 12 Airport Blvd, San Mateo. To register or learn more, click here.
