  • ID#: 10640149-A815361

Foster Care: Hey there, Shrek here! I'm a large, young, unaltered Muscovy duck with beautiful brown feathers. I am a very nice bird who will eat waterfowl pellets right from your hand! After I've had my fill, it's time for me to go for a long swim and then preen. I'll round out the afternoon by basking in the sunlight and soaking up some rays. Sounds like the perfect day to me! Ducks like me require a healthy and high quality diet, access to fresh water daily, protection from harsh weather and predators, and a clean, dry environment in which to sleep or preen. Since I'm not currently at the shelter, please contact Mariela at or 650/340-7022 x354 to meet me. Ask for Shrek, using ID# A815361.

Unless otherwise indicated, adoptable animals are located at our Lantos Center for Compassion at 1450 Rollins Road, Burlingame, CA 94010. Our hours are weekdays from 11am-7pm and weekends from 11am-6pm (closed major holidays). Interested adopters must arrive at least 1 hour before close. 

We do our best to update our listings regularly, but we can’t guarantee every animal you see is still available. It’s also typical for us to have animals who haven’t had their photos taken yet, so you are welcome to visit our adoption center and have a look around!

To check on an animal's adoption status, please call 650/340-7022 during normal business hours to speak with an adoption counselor or 650/340-7022 x823 anytime to hear a recording of our available animals (updated each morning). Emails will be returned as soon as possible, but please allow up to 48 hours during busy adoption periods like weekends.


About Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA

About Our Shelter...

PHS/SPCA, a private non-profit guided by the humane ethic, builds healthy relationships between people and animals. As an ethical choice, we accept all animals in need of care and often provide a second chance to the neediest animals: those who would otherwise be turned away at so-called “no kill” agencies that accept only highly adoptable animals. We also serve as our County’s provider of animal rescue and control services and, as such, have no control over the number of incoming animals. Our record is outstanding. Since 2003, we have adopted 100% of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats. Our definition of “healthy” is based on the State’s definition: dogs and cats without medical or behavioral issues, those that are fully weaned and social. It excludes obviously unhealthy animals (those with injuries and illnesses or those behaviorally scarred from past treatment and mistreatment) as well as unweaned kittens and feral cats. Still, donations to our Hope Program allow us to make well, then place into new homes approx. 170 animals every month. In February 2008, the Society celebrated accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) following a comprehensive review of the shelter’s veterinary program. Community education and outreach, partnerships, and a dedicated volunteer group greatly extend our mission and work. Read more at

Our Adoption Process...

When a potential adopter comes into the shelter and sees an animal he or she is interested in adopting, we ask the potential adopter to first complete an Adoption Profile. Then, one of our knowledgeable customer service representatives brings the adopter and animal together in one of our Get Acquainted Rooms. There they have a quiet, private space to get to know each other better. During the visit, the customer service representative may discuss the following:

- past experiences with animals and current animals in the home
- lifestyle, including work schedule and the kinds of activities they plan to do with their companion animal
- housing situation - own or rent, size of yard, etc
In order to make the best match possible for a family and home, we suggest potential adopters bring along all members of the household to meet the new companion animal and bring their current dog(s) to meet a potential dog. Adopters must also be 18 or older. Again, thank you for thinking of PHS/SPCA. We hope you find the companion animal you are looking for.

PHS/SPCA reserves the right to deny adoptions. Our priorities are the health, safety and future well-being of the animals in our care and the health, safety and expectations of people who visit us with hopes of finding a pet who will match their interests, lifestyle and existing companion animal(s).
