We continue to support the Placer SPCA because they do an outstanding job of using their resources wisely. We have watched this organization grow responsibly over the years and respond to the needs of the community with increasing programs and support. And with the financial struggles we have all been faced with in the recent years, this organization continues to implement creative and worthwhile solutions to serve the Placer County community best, without skipping a beat. I know great things will continue to happen for the animals and people of Placer County, with Placer SPCA leading the way!

Placer SPCA cares about animals and the people who adopt them into their families. Even "hard to place" animals find homes. While waiting to be adopted, volunteers spend many hours walking the dogs to make their stays as nice as possible. Staff is friendly and helpful and works hard to help the animals. They hold a number of fun "pet friendly" events not only to raise money but also to say "thank you" to volunteers and donors.

I have seen this organization help so many people and animals in the Placer County area. They've helped find many homes for animals in need, provided emergency healthcare services to strays and abandoned pets, helped low income pet owners provide necessary healthcare to their pets, provided education to children through their Critter Camp, etc. The organization is also managed by an incredible group of people who are known and greatly respected throughout out community. I love this organization and am proud to be able to help animals through them!
