My cat was old and thin, he moved slowly and had poor eyesight. He could not get up on the couch unless I picked him up, which was every day and night. Each day if the weather was good I would let him out, backyard only, for an hour or so. Two months ago I let him out at 3;00 P.M. and one hour later went out back and he was gone. I looked under all the bushes and still could not find him. I knocked on all the neighbors doors and no one had seen him. The only neighbor that did not answer is elderly. That night I went outside at least ten times looking for him and calling his name. No luck. The next morning at 9 00 A.M.I again knocked on the elderly ladies door. She answered this time. I decribed my cat and asked if she had seen him. She said yes, he wondered into my backyard and looked so thin I called my daughter and we took him to the Roseville SPCA where they killed him less than one hour after he arriived. I called them and went there immediately. I described him and they went to their freezer and came back with his frozen body wrapped in a blanket. The vet said " he went like a champ". I know he was old, but that day was not supposed to be his last, He deserved better. he deserved to be with his family that loved him; at our Vet, when it was time. My family and I could not even say goodbye old friend, we love you. For this, I can never forgive the Roseville SPCA.

The Placer SPCA killed several cats a few years ago because they had ringworm then tried to hush up what they did. They refused to allow me to take even one of these cats away but instead preferred to kill them. Ringworm (like athlete's foot fungus) is curable.

I withdrew all my support for this group. SHAME ON THEM.

Adopt! Especially the senior animals. Wonderful place. I wish I could adopt all the animals here. These people do an immense job volunteering.

Ahh Stacey O. I have a few choice words for you! First off I would say that half the people you talk to at ANY shelter are going to end up being volunteers! Second YOU should know better to walk into any place and think a red carpet will be placed at your feet while you are getting service! THANK GOD you were not able to adopt because if that is any shining example of your patience with a situation you would most definitely be the WORST possible animal owner! YOU are exactly WHY there are so many animals in that situation in the first place! YOU would be the kind of person that if the cat was not what you expected YOU would bring it back and break its heart! Third and foremost you absolutely NEED to keep your hands clean when going from cat to cat, a simple URI or eye infection can be spread like wild fire and wipe out the WHOLE SPCA! Something of which an animal shelter that bases themselves strictly by donations cannot afford to have happen! BUT AGAIN another good reason why YOU should NOT be a pet owner! Placer does the best they can in the situation that has been handed to them. They are hard workers and very compassionate when it comes to those animals and they do the VERY BEST they can to make sure each and every animal in there is safe and healthy and gets a very good home. Apparently they did a GREAT job because you walked out without a pet and as far as I am concerned saved that poor cat from a very bad life! Every single person there spends time with as many animals as they cat to keep them social. SHAME on you for being so selfish as to write a bad review about ANY facility that is doing nothing but trying to help the animals in their county!

My husband and I have been to this SPCA many time,we go there practically every weekend in search of the "right" dog for us..just waiting for one to stand out,since it is a big responsibility. I have to disagree with the woman who's complaining about this shelter. Of course you can't just go up and touch the cats,cats carry diseases and by people running all over the shelter putting their fingers in every cage,you're exposing every cat to such diseases,DUH! I find the staff to be very friendly and helpful,of course there is the occasional person (like anywhere else) that might have a little attitude but overall,they're friendly. You may have been there at a very busy time,explaining why it was hard to find help. Give these people a break,they're VOLUNTEERING their time..geez! Sorry you feel it was beneath you to fill out paperwork but it's a process EVERYONE has to go through in order to adopt their forever pet. Really? Wow! If you feel it's just a waste of your time,why even bother?..I'd feel sorry for the pet that got stuck in your home! And the smell really isn't that bad..it's just like at any other shelter. You probably came in at a time when they were cleaning the cages. I'm really grossed out by certain smells and if I can handle it for 5-10 minutes,I'm sure you can suck it up and stick it out for a few minutes while you're picking out your companion. The fact that you left the kitty you "really liked" is on you lady!

Silly people who write reviews and have no understanding of animal care. Cats carry diseases. If the Placer County SPCA workers didn't wear gloves, they stand the chance of spreading cat diseases from one cat to another. Cat urine smells. The cat cages at Placer SPCA are clean, new litter whenever a cat uses the litter and the people who work there wear gloves and aprons. The cats have a nice area with television. Shameful? I think not. If everyone were allowed just to touch any cat they wanted to at any time, people would enter the shelter and use it like a petting zoo. This would stress the cats and kittens and spread diseases.

We got our cat from Placer County SPCA and she is now 14 years old. She has been a healthy, happy cat for us for all these years.

The Placer County SPCA is truly one of the few animal shelters that knows how to properly handle care for large quanities of cats. If you want healthy animals, go to Placer County SPCA. If you want a cat that could possibly go home with feline disease then go to a shelter that lets you prode, poke and touch any cat you like without regard for the animals.

Was just reading some of the reviews and its shameful that people talk down about the Placer SPCA. I have just adopted my second dog from this location and my friends have adopted many others. Yes, its smells bad. Of course it does with all the abandoned and surrendered animals they are trying to care for there with very limited resources. And I have not dealt with any rude people there. Most of the workers there are "VOLUNTEERS" they have chosen to be there to help the animals by cleaning the kennels, walking the animals and just giving them some one on one contact to keep them socialized. Instead of complaining, how about volunteering some of your time and/or money!!!!

A friend of a friend was spreading the word that Placer County SPCA was overrun with cats and kittens and to please help. We went this past Sunday with that in mind. The first thing we noticed was the odor. I understand it is a shelter but the Sacramento SPCA has never smelled like that...truly foul. We were immediately told by the unfriendly woman at the desk that all dogs and puppies were quarantined until the end of the next week. We made our way back to the rooms with the cats. Numerous signs made it clear we were not to touch any animals or put our fingers in the cages. We checked them all out and wanted to hold a few before deciding. There was a woman worker (in latex gloves) who was apparently just petting one of the inmates and I asked if she could help us. She said we would have to sign up out front and the cat would be brought to us out there. Weird, but OK. After waiting for one of the fluttering old gals out front I was given 2 pages of paperwork to fill out, which I did, laughing at the silliness of it all, but whatever, right? Back at the counter I stood and waited, and waited, and waited trying to make eye contact and once even interrupting while the biddies clustered over a computer screen. Finally I just gave up. I went back to say good-bye to my favorite kitty and the gloved woman asked if I had been helped. I related the story and expressed how I was beginning to understand why this shelter was so overcrowded. She grinned and said "yeah, I know". Again, I noticed the gloves and realized that this was just a really dirty, mismanaged shelter under the mistaken belief that we, the adopters,were the ones making their animals sick. These poor creatures were even being denied all human contact and, in this case, a future home...R.I.P. Shane...Shame on you, Placer Co. SPCA

Highly recommended! The Placer SPCA works with the shelter animals to socialize and train them in preparation for their new forever homes. The dogs are taught basic obedience and even some agility. These folks are helping the pets put their best paws forward and invite you to come meet your new best friend!

I got my puppy here and it was the greatest experience. This was a well run shelter with very knowledgeable staff who are truly animal lovers. This is the greatest dog I have ever had and i was very pleased with the whole encounter!

I wish we could adopt every dog and cat there! This is a good local shelter that really needs public support. It's clean and well kept but not the most fancy shelter for sure. Please go by if you're looking for a dog, they're well taken care of and ready for a good home.
