Special Needs


Hi there I'm Almond!  I'm a  neutered 1.5-year old male Chihuahua.  I'm super shy and will need patient adopters to help me feel safe and come out of my shell.

I’m also a proud graduate of the TAILS program, a partnership between PHS/SPCA and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. “TAILS” stands for Transitioning Animals Into Loving Situations and the program pairs shelter dogs with minimum-security inmates to give the dogs round-the-clock care and gives the inmates an avenue for developing skills and making their time more meaningful.

Since I'm not at the shelter, please contact Sara Werning at or 650-340-7022 ext 667 to make arrangements to meet me.  Ask for Almond ID# A841133. 

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 ext. 823 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.
