Humane Society Silicon Valley Overview
Geographic areas served: San Francisco Bay Area and beyond
HSSV adopts rescued, abandoned and surrendered companion animals into new, loving homes. Through our Regional Rescue, Behavior and Foster Programs, we collaborate with other shelters and rescue groups in Silicon Valley to save dogs and cats who are out of time, or need special medical and/or behavioral treatment to become adoptable. These animals are cared for at HSSV's Animal Community Center until they are ready for a new home. Oftern, animals who need a bit more time or need a quiet place to recover will stay in a foster home until a permanent home is found. We also have a robust Lost/Found program and operate a behavioral helpline. We invest our efforts in extensive behavioral assistance for people who might surrender their pets if we don't intervene. Our goal in Adoptions and Placement services is to find homes for the animals we save, and to keep animals in homes, so they never see the inside of a shelter.
To save and enhance lives - both two-legged and four-legged.
