A Letter From the Fiddyment Family

A Letter From the Fiddyment Family

As a family with roots that span three generations in our community, we have seen unparalleled growth and an exciting transformation of our region into a popular place to live, work, raise a family, and even retire. With that growth comes a greater need to support and protect one of our most vulnerable populations: our companion pets.

Whether you’re a dog or cat lover – or prefer “critters” like mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, or rabbits – you will find that the Placer SPCA cares for all of these animals, serving more than 4,000 homeless animals each year. They do so with compassion, business-savvy, and excellent programs that strengthen the human-animal bond while providing a core community service for our region.

For more than 40 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. There is truly no other organization in Placer County providing the breadth and depth of animal welfare services as the Placer SPCA. And as a four-star charity for eight straight years, they are ranked among the top charitable organizations in the United States. Yet, they have never had a permanent home of their own…until now.

The new Placer SPCA facility will be so much more than an animal shelter. It will be a landmark and a gathering place for the entire community. Through animal adoption and the many programs offered by the Placer SPCA, children will learn the character-building skills of compassion, responsibility and commitment. People from all walks of life will find the companionship, unconditional love and daily laughter that a furry family member can bring. This new state-of-the-art facility will increase critical capacity to take in more stray, abandoned and surrendered animals. And it will help reduce the incidences of homeless animals by offering more low-cost or donor-subsidized spay and neuter services.

We have supported many charitable causes throughout our community and the Greater Sacramento region. While they have all been worthwhile organizations, few are as important to us as the Placer SPCA.
