CEO Message

June 12, 2020

As we continue to adapt to the new guidelines from our state and local officials, I’d like to say thank you for being there for us during this extraordinary time. The donations of pet food, supplies and money are incredibly helpful, and your kind notes and words of encouragement have lifted my spirits. Although the way we conduct business has changed, we remain committed to the pets and people of Placer County. Here are the latest updates.

We’ve been busy!

We currently have 180 animals in care either in foster homes or at our centers. Some animals in foster care are returning to our Adoption & Education Center, while some remain in foster care until such a time as they are adopted. There have been wonderful stories emerging from the families that opened their homes to foster a pet. You can read more about them on our Facebook page.

In just a few short weeks, 92 animals have already been adopted.

We have increased the number of adoption appointments from 3 to as many as 11 per day to accommodate the level of interest from potential adopters. In order to achieve this, strict guidelines must be followed. (Details are listed below). Your patience is appreciated as we determine new protocols to insure the safety of all.

We are now able to accept recyclables again. Please bring your CA redeemable recyclable items – aluminum, glass (no wine bottles), and plastic with the California Redemption Value (CRV) label on it to our Intake Center 150 Corp Yard Road Tues – Sun between 11am – 4pm in the labeled dumpsters located in the parking lot.

We are also now able to accept drop-off of donations. Donations will be accepted, self-service, from the front courtyard location at the Adoption & Education Center at 200 Tahoe Ave in Roseville. The gate for the courtyard will remain open between 8AM and 4:30PM each day of the week.

Donations may also be delivered to our Intake facility located at 150 Corporation Yard in Roseville. Donation bins are located in front of the building.

Plans are underway to reopen the thrift store. More information will be available soon.

The Adoption & Education Center is open for adoptions by appointment only. Please follow the guidelines below to schedule an appointment:

Look through our online inventory at https://placerspca.org/adopt-home/ and select one animal or bonded pair that you would like to meet.

Call 916-782-7722 and press 0 to schedule an appointment. The appointment is limited to two members of the household only, preferably no children. There can be no exceptions.

Masks are required to be worn for anyone over 2 years of age.

Appointments scheduled are to visit with the pet identified.

We are dependent upon the community for support. Your donations mean more to us now than ever before. If you are able to help, here are some options:

Monetary donations are the most helpful and can be made online at https://placerspca.org/support/donate/ or mailed to 200 Tahoe Ave, Roseville, CA 95678.

If you know of someone in Placer County in need of help with their pet, we have several programs to help keep people and pets together whenever possible. Refer to our website at www.placerspca.org. Our food assistance program is one such program. Placer County residents can call us at (916)-782-7722 and press 0 to speak to a staff member about this program.
