Placer SPCA partners with San Diego Humane Society
Roseville, Calif. – As Florida continues to suffer the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, Placer SPCA has partnered with San Diego Humane Society to make space available for displaced animals in Florida shelters. As lead on this mission, San Diego Humane Society received a number of dogs flown in from shelters throughout the Florida panhandle – dogs that were already in shelters waiting to be adopted.
Placer SPCA staff and volunteers met the San Diego Humane Society in Kettleman City to transfer 10 of those dogs to the Placer SPCA Adoption & Education Center in Roseville.
“We’re fortunate to now have a facility with the capacity to help other animal welfare organizations during critical times of need,” stated Leilani Fratis, Chief Executive Officer at Placer SPCA. “These efforts aren’t limited to those in our own community or even state. Providing a safety net for animals in a nationwide effort.”
These dogs will require medical and behavioral evaluations before being placed on the adoption floor. Once they are ready, Placer SPCA will work to find them each a loving forever home.
