Hi everyone, I'm Alice. I'm a 10 1/2 year old spayed female Chihuahua. If you had seen me when I first arrived at PHS, you wouldn't believe it. I was super skinny, had terrible teeth, and was so scared of the world, I spent most of my time hiding under a blanket. Well, not anymore! I've put on some weight (some say too much, but what can I say, a girl likes her treats), I got a thorough dental treatment from the kind vet staff here, and I'm a total social butterfly with people and dogs now. I love stuffie toys and especially love hoarding them into a little pile so I can sit with them and admire them all. I play well with the other small dogs here at the shelter and I always have time for some love and kisses with my person. It's even possible that I could live with cats and I'd be happy going home with a first-time owner. Is that you? I sure hope so...I have a lot of love to give and I can't wait to meet you. Ask for Alice, #A809000.
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.
