New beginnings, new locations, new businesses!

placer spca

Placer SPCA is processing tenant improvements for a new location at 99 Yosemite Street. The nearly 20,000 square foot remodel/addition is valued at nearly one million dollars. Unger Construction is the general contractor on the project.  Read more about the project in this 2015 bizjounal article.

Placer SPCA is the largest and most comprehensive animal welfare organization in Placer County. In operation for 40 years, it shelters up to 4,000 animals annually and provides adoption counseling, spay and neuter assistance, pet lost and found, an array of classes and workshops, collaborative rescue efforts, pet behavioral training, and volunteer opportunities including a thrift store.

Yet Placer SPCA is at a critical juncture. Their ability to serve a growing community is challenged by a facility that has outlived its useful lifespan and is becoming ever more expensive to maintain.

To address the challenges of its existing site, as well as future program and animal capacity requirements, the Placer SPCA Board of Directors has embarked on plans for a new Animal Care and Adoption Center. Intended as both a community space and animal welfare center, this new facility has been designed as a gathering place where people and animals can unite in a calm, stress-free environment.
