Good news - 100% adoptable animals placed in 2010

Peninsula Humane Society track record for the 8th consecutive year 
Despite a 7 percent increase in animals surrendered to the Peninsula Humane Society in 2010, officials said the shelter was able to place 100 percent of adoptable animals into new homes for the eighth consecutive year. In 2009, an estimated 2,955 pets were surrendered by owners who were no longer willing or able to care for their animals. In 2010, that number grew to 3,162. There were 3,749 animals adopted from the center in 2010, of which 3,077 were dogs and cats. The others were small domestic animals. "The numbers really don't tell the story. The story is in the relationships we form with them" said shelter President Ken White. "They are living sentient beings who add so much to a family, and really ask for very little back."  Full article San Mateo Times 2/4/2011.
