What is the Guardian Angel Program?

The Guardian Angel Program was created so that animals in our care may receive medical care, whether for routine examinations or life-saving medical treatment.

Who are Guardian Angel recipients?

Guardian Angel receipients are animals that arrive at Placer SPCA and are in need of medical attention. Some of these animals are surrendered by their owners when they can no longer care for them, and others arrive as strays. In 2012, 1,539 animals received medical care, thanks to the Guardian Angel Program.

Guardian Angel Recipients

What kind of medical services does the Guardian Angel Program provide?

The Guardian Angel program provides a vast array of medical care, such as diagnostic tests and x-rays, repair of broken bones, badly needed dental treatments, tumor removal, treatment of digestive problems, and many more.

 

The Placer SPCA is looking for guardian angels to help us take care of the special needs animals who come into our center.  Whether an animal needs heartworm treatments, a surgery to remove a growth or a dental to improve its adoptability, your help could make the difference of a lifetime.

Meet Tick Tock

Tick Tock, a beautiful 3-year old spaniel, was found in a local neighborhood a few months ago. We weren't certain if he had been hit by a car, but when he arrived at Placer SPCA, he was in bad shape. Thankfully, he was brought to us for medical care and shelter while he was treated for his injuries.

Thanks to the generousity of our supporters, Tick Tock was able to make a full recovery and was adopted into a loving home.

The Guardian Angel program enables Placer SPCA to provide medical care for approximately 1,539 animals like Tick Tock a year.

Would you like to help? Would you like to sponsor the cost of Tick Tock's medical care, so that we may continue to provide care for other injured animals?
