Euthanasia Services

Choosing to put a loved companion animal to sleep is incredibly difficult. If you have made that choice, we encourage you to bring your animal to PHS/SPCA’s shelter at 12 Airport Blvd. (Coyote Point) in San Mateo, where we promise to provide a humane, dignified ending. Hours are 11 am to 7 pm on weekdays and 11 am to 6 pm on weekends.

If a pet has identification (a microchip, license, etc.), please allow extra time for our staff to research that information. Vet records and/or adoption records will help expedite this process.

If you wish to be present with your pet during the procedure, please call 650-340-7022, ext. 339 to schedule an appointment. We offer owner-present appointments only on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our Coyote Point Shelter in San Mateo until further notice.

Our euthanasia service for dogs, cats or small animals is $50. We offer communal and private cremations.  Private cremations are an additional cost; feel free to inquire at our shelter for pricing.

We are routinely told that our employees are compassionate, caring and understanding... that we made an incredibly difficult situation a little bit easier.

Pet Loss Support Group

When your companion animal dies, it's natural to feel grief and sadness, even depression. Our free support group is designed to offer anyone grieving the death, loss or terminal illness of a beloved companion animal... more info and dates for support group
