Guardian Angel Program


Our Guardian Angel program was established to help special needs animals receive the care and attention they need before finding their new home. The program covers expenses associated with lab work, xrays, biopsies, dentals and other diagnostic tests and non-routine procedures. Through our Guardian Angel Program, thousands of animals each year are treated for various infections and diseases like heartworm, bordetella and upper respiratory, as well as treatment of injuries such as broken legs, torn ligaments, physical therapy and more.

Your support of the Guardian Angel Program will help Placer SPCA continue to provide these necessary, and often times lifesaving, services to those animals in need. Guardian Angels can choose to help cover the costs associated with one of the animals below – or simply make a donation to the general Guardian Angel Program fund to help an animal in need.*

For more information, please contact our Development Department at (916) 872-6162 or email

*Any funds received in excess of an animal’s medical expenses will be directed to the general Guardian Angel Program Fund to help other animals in need.
