All 20 cities and towns in San Mateo County participate in the countywide animal control program. The County contracts with the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA (PHS), a private nonprofit organization, to enforce all animal control laws, shelter homeless animals and provide a variety of other services.

Services include:

  • Rescue injured animals
  • Capture of at-large or stray animals
  • Investigate animal bites and attacks
  • Removal of dead animals from public property
  • Removal of dead or living wildlife from private property ONLY if such wildlife has direct contract with humans and/or animals that involves a bite or attack
  • Enforce leash laws and local ordinances (please report barking dog noise complaints to the police)
  • Euthanasia of severely injured animals
  • Investigate reports of animal cruelty
