Located on Grass Valley Highway near Luther Road in Auburn, the Pet Adoption and Resource Center can house up to 30 adoptable cats and six adoptable dogs, and includes an education room and dog training area.

The cat and dog adoption rooms are modern spaces offering the residents more area to play and explore than traditional kennels found in most animal shelters.

The Placer SPCA was founded in Auburn in 1973 by a group of volunteers dedicated to helping homeless animals in Placer County. In 1995, Placer SPCA moved to the current Companion Animal Care Center located in Roseville. Local companion animal welfare experts, Placer SPCA has continuously offered programs and services throughout Placer County, and we now proudly operate a facility in our hometown.

What motivated you to volunteer at the Placer SPCA Auburn? What motivated us was we had adopted a dog from the Auburn facility, the employee that helped us was very friendly (Jacque). The facility was so clean and welcoming that we wanted to volunteer our time here in particular.

What do you like best about volunteering? We feel really helpful coming in in the morning and assisting with cleaning, because we know that this helps a great deal. We love spending time with the cats and getting to know their personalities. We like playing with them and we especially like giving them affection.  By volunteering at the Placer SPCA, we feel that we are doing our part in helping the community, which makes us feel good.

What do you like best about the Placer SPCA?The facilities are always so clean and welcoming, and the staff goes above and beyond to make us feel comfortable.  We don’t get a bad feeling walking into the Auburn Adoption and Resource Center like we do at some other shelters. We weren’t rushed when we adopted our dog from here, the employee was very patient and answered all of our questions fully and completely. We felt no pressure and walked out incredibly happy. The Placer SPCA has such a positive vibe and we know our next animal will come from here!

How many animals do you have at home?Just one, Guinness, a 5 and a half year old black toy poodle. We adopted him from Placer SPCA in Auburn on New Year's Eve 2012.
