“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate 85 years of helping the Peninsula’s pets and people. It is amazing to see how the organization has evolved over the years, from its humble beginnings in 1938, when a small group of animal lovers created the Peninsula Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.  That one act of kindness has grown into the organization we are today, with the help of many board members, executive directors, staff, volunteers, and community support along the way.  We are celebrating this milestone with, and for, all of them and the many pets and community members we helped over the last eight-and-a-half decades.” – Megan Steele, Peninsula SPCA’s Executive Director

Please carpool if you can. A small lot for additional parking for this event is available at Elite Auto Body across the street from the shelter.
