Every year, we like to honor people, animals, businesses and/or organizations that have gone above and beyond to demonstrate how strong the human-animal bond is. If you know of a local hero, nominate them today for a Placer SPCA Hero Award. Selected recipients will be presented their award on Friday, March 31 at the Placer SPCA’s 16th annual Funny Bones Comedy Show & Awards Night.
Previous recipients include:
- Gold Country Love on a Leash, an organization that unites therapy dogs with nursing homes and hospitals, offering emotional support to those in need
- Big Daddy, an American Miniature Horse who visits patients at Sutter Medical Center in Roseville
- Rocklin Residents Unite For Fido (RRUFF)’s Healing Heroes, a program that matches therapy dogs with veterans suffering from PTSD
