I've sat on the boards of 30 non-profit organizations over the last 30 years, and the Placer SPCA is the best run non-profit organization with which I've been associated. All of their staff members are utterly dedicated to the organization's mission, and the staff and the volunteers do an incredible job every day maximizing the resources provided to them to the benefit of companion animals that come into their care. I don't know if I've seen a more dedicated group of people from top to bottom associated with a non-profit.

The Placer SPCA is an integral part of the community. They are involved in much more than just sheltering homeless and unwanted animals. Their spay and neuter programs are instrumental in reducing the overpopulation of pets in Placer County. They've received numerous grants and donations for this program and the money is well spent. The guardian angel program is also well received by the community and it's organizations. Throught grants and donations, animals that need medical treatment get it and become adoptable pets. These are just two of the many programs that the SPCA is involved with. They also educate the community about their programs and well as how to best to take care of their pets. They also have a staff educational person that shares the educational aspects of owning a pet with the local school children as well as hosting week long summer camp for numerous children.
