Happy Endings, New Beginnings
A campaign for an Innovative Animal Community Center

Join us March 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for our Open House event at our new Animal Community Center!
901 Ames Avenue, Milpitas.

The 48,000 square foot center will be the first Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified animal welfare agency in the country to combine an adoption program with a full spectrum of pet and community oriented services under one roof.

Our Goal

To raise $25 million for this one-of-a-kind Animal Community Center. As of February 2009, HSSV has raised $20.4 million toward the project.

While we will continue our discussions with possible leadership supporters who have indicated interest, to help ensure the successful funding of our new center, we are also taking our campaign to the general public. If you are interested in making a gift or if you would like more information about our Animal Community Center, please contact (408) 727-3383 ext. 878, email us at: [email protected] or make an online donation.

Addressing pet overpopulation and euthanasia in Silicon Valley calls for a revolutionary approach to the way our community cares for its pets, starting with a deeper understanding of the animals that share our lives and the gifts they offer us.

Humane Society Silicon Valley is committed to cultivating deeper human-animal bonds through our future Animal Community Center - a new and inspiring model of humane care for shelters everywhere.

Home-like habitats for dog, cat, and rabbit visitors; affordable spay/neuter services; innovative education programs; a healthy and humane pet supply store; dog grooming and day care; a dog park and pet-friendly cafe -- these are just a few of the features that will make Humane Society Silicon Valley a place where people can find, bring, care for, learn about, and celebrate the animals that enrich our lives.

In October 2007, HSSV broke ground on our new Animal Community Center in Milpitas.

With your help, compassion, and ingenuity, we can achieve our vision: a place where people enjoy the company of animals whose tails tell of happy endings -- and bold new beginnings.

We hope that you will browse our site, view the videos and photos and follow along as we take the concept of an animals shelter to a whole new level.

The Animal Community Center will be able to accommodate up to 10,000 animal adoptions a year. With its enlightened architecture and design, the center will replace traditional chain-link cages with healthier, friendlier habitats — comfortable, home-like enclosures for dogs; condos and colonies, complete with climbing trees, for cats; and a rabbitat designed to reflect the warrens rabbits naturally inhabit. Animals will also have the opportunity to socialize and learn from each other, making them more adoptable. These new habitats will reduce stress and decrease incidents of illness for animals and will make HSSV a more people-friendly environment, facilitating more human-animal matches. We believe this innovative center will be an inspiring model of humane care and community involvement for shelters nationwide.

The Animal Community Center will be built on 4.8 acres of land near Milpitas Boulevard and Montague Expressway and is accessible to Highway 101 and Interstates 680 and 880.
