A New Facility
The state of the art building will feature hospital quality in a home-like atmosphere. The new Placer SPCA center and headquarters will be centrally located at the corner of Yosemite Street and Tahoe Avenue near downtown Roseville, with convenient freeway access to I-80. Previously the location of a Surewest Telecommunications facility, the 41,000 square foot building sits on just over two acres and will include several park-like features for the enjoyment of center animals and guests alike, while mitigating impact on the nearby neighborhood. A sharp contrast from the 10,000 square foot building in which the Placer SPCA currently operates, this new center will serve animals and residents of Placer County for years to come.
Creating a building design based on best practices for animal shelters.
Design of the new facility incorporates research and recommendations by the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program. Similar to the transformation of zoos from cages to livable habitats, the trend in animal shelters is to create environments for companion animals that provide a home-like setting more suitable for promoting the animal’s adoptability into family life. Since the ultimate outcome for this new center is a permanent home for every adoptable animal, the center’s overall architecture will focus on reducing each animal’s length of stay and enhancing their adoptability.
Creating an important resource in Placer County that everyone, humans and animals alike, can enjoy.
