PLACER COUNTY SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
January 17, 2012

I am honored to help Placer SPCA help abused and homeless animals in our area. Their kind and heartfelt attention to these abandoned pets is wonderful. Each animal is given the equal opportunity to be evaluated for possible adoption. They also screen potential "pet parents" to make sure the animal is going to an appropriate and loving home. I work at their thrift store and love being able to donate my time to bring much needed funds to the organization. I also am a 10 year member and donate as much cash as I can throughout the year. It is a pleasure to help these great folks and this great group do their best to help those beings without a voice.

PLACER COUNTY SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
August 20, 2011

My husband Lonnie and I choose to continually support the Placer SPCA for hundreds of reasons and in many ways. We feel the most important thing is the constant thread of compassion and kindness they show the animals and those of us blessed enough to live in Placer County.

With every encounter whether it be a surrender or adoption, I feel that the animal will be or has been cared for in an appropriate and humane manner.

Placer SPCA’s staff has consistently proven themselves to care more about others, both human and animals, than they do themselves. They are selfless volunteers who bring empathy and encouragement to the most needy of our community…those without a voice. By helping the most helpless, they encourage my family and I to support them in anyway we can. We help with more than monetary donations by being a constant cheerleader for their cause, bringing in our recyclable bottles and cans, volunteering and shopping and donating at the thrift store and donating food and other needed items to the shelter.

Gandhi said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Wise words and those that we feel are followed very closely by the Placer SPCA.

The Placer SPCA gives those that can not speak a voice, those that can not defend themselves a safe haven. I have personally been involved with stories of abused and injured animals being made whole and given a new happy life due to their efforts.

The Great!

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

Being able to rely on Placer SPCA to be a safe place to surrender a wild or domestic animal. I also rely on them to prepare potential adoptive families to get ready to take home a cat or dog and know what their responsibilities are with that commitment.

Ways to make it better...

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

really none. I think the staff and management are extraordinary. all my interactions from the CEO to counter staff have been positive.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I have witnessed animals being cared for in the most humane manner. They also have a significant public education effort. .
