Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal shelter that has been serving people and pets for over 80 years. HSSV offers quality adoptions,
affordable spaying/neutering, vaccinations and microchipping services, pet care
services and education programs to enhance the human-animal bond. Established in 1929, HSSV has adopted more
than 500,000 animals into permanent, loving homes. HSSV operates an open door shelter 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year. We also operate multiple satellite adoption centers in PETCO in the El
Paseo Shopping Center in San Jose and on El Camino Real in Sunnyvale.
HSSV is the first Animal Community Center in the nation to receive Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Our Mission: To save and enhance lives – both four-legged and two-legged!
Our Vision: Through compassion and collaboration, we are building a community in Silicon Valley where every pet has a home.
