For 45 years, the Placer SPCA has reunited lost pets with their owners, enabled struggling families and individuals to keep their pets when times are tough, and matched homeless pets with those searching for a companion. It began in 1973 when a group of community residents committed to animal welfare in the greater Placer area could no longer watch the suffering of homeless animals that were abandoned and left to fend for themselves, often succumbing to starvation, disease, and euthanasia. In search of a loving home for these animals, compassionate volunteers founded the Placer SPCA. In its early years, the Placer SPCA operated without a shelter, working solely out of a small office in Auburn. Then managed entirely by volunteers, hundreds of homeless and abused animals were placed in foster homes until they found their permanent homes. Through the gift of a generous bequest, the current Placer SPCA Companion Animal Center in Roseville opened in 1995 and was expanded a few years later after another legacy gift.

Today, the Placer SPCA is the largest and most comprehensive animal welfare provider in Placer County. The Placer SPCA is critically needed in the community, and the organization houses, feeds, and cares for up to 4,000 homeless animals annually between our three locations: the Placer Companion Animal Center in Roseville, the Pet Adoption and Resource Center in Auburn, and the Pet Food Express Cat Adoption Center at Fountains in Roseville. Working closely with the community, the Placer SPCA provides adoption counseling, spay/neuter assistance and education, pet lost and found, pet classes and workshops, humane education, collaborative rescue efforts, and volunteer opportunities. Contrary to common belief, the Placer SPCA is not affiliated with any other entity and does not receive donations from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). We do not receive government funding outside of contracted services. Our programs are funded solely through private donations, charitable foundations, corporate grants, fees for service, and a thrift store.

Earlier this year, the Placer SPCA opened Phase I of the brand new Adoption and Education Center at 200 Tahoe Avenue in Roseville. This 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility will serve as the organization's central adoption location, housing adoptable pets and adoption services, our education center, and our administrative offices. The new campus features hospital quality in a home-like atmosphere, designed carefully with the research and recommendations by the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program in mind. The Placer SPCA's previous Companion Animal Care Center at 150 Corporation Yard Road is now being used for intake and veterinary services facility until Phases II and III of the new campus are funded and built.
Placer SPCA's needs change on any given day, depending on the animals in our care and their need for support. The Placer SPCA is always looking for:

- People looking to add the perfect companion to their home through adoption
- People willing to temporarily open their homes and hearts to animals in need
- Donations to help provide life-saving medical treatment to animals in need through our "Guardian Angel" program
- Pet food for our Pet Food Assistance Program, helping families facing financial hardship feed their pets
- Donations to our SOS Program, providing no-interest loans to people in need of help paying veterinary bills
- Donations of blankets, towels, treats and more to help animals in our care

Placer SPCA's most pressing need, currently, is still space. While we moved into Phase I of our new campus - the Adoption and Education Center - we are still fundraising to build our veterinary clinic and intake center for pets in need. If you are interested in buying a brick at our new facility to support these efforts, or learn about other naming opportunities, please contact funddevelopment@placerspca.org or 916-782-7722 x102.

"You will often hear me say that "I am the very proud CEO of the Placer SPCA." And, I am. I am proud of the lifesaving programs and services we offer to the pets and people of Placer County. I am proud of our outstanding staff and nearly 1,000 volunteers who gave over 88,064 hours of service last year alone. And I am especially proud that after 45 years of finding permanent homes for animals in need, we finally have a home of our own. Our focus is on ensuring that animals become more adoptable every day they are in our care and we continue to develop and offer some of the most innovative programs in order to accomplish this. Thanks to generous donors like you, we now have a facility to match the high quality of services we offer. Intended as both a community space and animal welfare center, this new facility has been designed as a gathering place where people and animals can unite in a calm, stress-free environment. Best of all, it allows us to meet the growing demand of animal welfare services for our rapidly increasing community. Since 2001, Placer County has grown by over 100,000 people and is now considered the second fastest growing county in California. With more people comes increased demand for space to care for and house homeless animals, adoption, and other supportive services including behavior education and subsidized spay and neuter assistance. This Big Day of Giving, please consider opening your hearts to the animals that depend on human kindness for survival. The possibilities are endless at our new facility, but none of it is possible without you. Our Adoption and Education Center is centrally located at the corner of Yosemite Street and Tahoe Avenue near downtown Roseville with convenient freeway access to I-80. I hope you can come by and see it in person soon." Sincerely, Leilani Fratis CEO
