San Mateo County (CA) has extended its animal control contract with Peninsula Humane Society for another 4 years, to June 30, 2015. PHS&SPCA is nearing completion of its new “Tom and Annette Lantos Center for Compassion” at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame where it prevailed in the contentious city land use process. The nonprofit programs will be located in Burlingame while the animal control program (lost holds, surrenders, s/n clinic; licensing and microchip at both locations) continues at leased county location, 12 Airport, San Mateo.
Our blog post SAN MATEO COUNTY FREE SPAY/NEUTER VOUCHERS, August 12, 2007 is still a popular search hit, and we’re pleased to note that this County administered program is still alive and well and offers its information pamphlet in English, Spanish and Chinese. The County licensing information is only offered in English and finally in Chinese.
It takes some knowledge of several languages to get through the day in much of San Mateo County. Someday, PHS&SPCA might want to publicly acknowledge reality of diversity here as it moves forward with its ambitious mission and programs to ensure that these truly do benefit the entire community.
