Reviews for Placer County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals

Rating: 5 stars  

Last year I found a Momma cat with several kittens, they were just days old. We decided to raise them and with that comes the responsibility to be a responsible pet owner.

The Placer SPCA educates and encourages the public to spay or neuter their pets as part of responsible pet ownership. For my new found momma kitty and her kittens this would not have been possible without help from SNAP (spay and Neuter Assistance Program). The application process was simple, and the Placer SPCA was very quick to respond to our request. We were able to get the momma cat and kittens spayed free of charge through agreements the Placer SPCA has with various local vets.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through my positive experiences as a client served, it has made me want to get more involved with the organization. A few months ago I signed up to start volunteering and all the experiences have been just as pleasant.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

switch up the volunteer class schedule. Some people are always busy on a particular weekend, and not being able to make that class might be the one thing that's keeping from giving their time.

The Placer SPCA has been so helpful in granting my husband and I discounts for spaying and neutering. We live across the street from a park and many people have dumped off cats there. These poor kitties show up at our back door; the last one was already pregnant. With the PSPCA's help, we have altered all the cats we could catch or trap; as a result we've adopted or found homes for many friendly ones, and we feed the altered ones too feral to be adopted. Without the help of the Placer SPCA, this wouldn't have been possible.

We are also donors; we donate money and goods for their thrift shop when we can because we feel a great debt to this terrific charity.

Receiving financial help to spay and neuter stray and abandoned cats.

These people really care about Placer County's animals. I can't think of any changes.

My spouse and I adopt old and/or ailing cats. It is hard to find other homes for them, and they always seem to be the happiest, most grateful creatures you'll ever be around. PSPCA does an excellent job of promoting their "tough to adopt" animals, and the staff members and volunteers always seem genuinely thrilled when one of those animals is adopted. At an open house at PSPCA years ago, they had a room in the front full of very senior cats. Guests were encouraged to play with the catt, who were not in cages and were surrounded by toys. I ended up with a wonderful old man cat named Max. A friend adopted a female who was 17 - and the cat just died at age 23.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

fundraising, events, adoption services.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The genuine caring shown by volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

sometimes a big gruff, but understandably so givenn what they are dealing with every day. Unfortunately the general public doesn't know that, so it may be a bit off-putting.. Usually though they are all friendly and they are always knowledgable.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
