Our mission is to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of the animals and people in Placer County. Through collaborative and sustainable partnerships, we strive to improve the lives of the animals in our care through community outreach and education; veterinary treatment and preventive care; reuniting lost pets with their families; and adoption, rescue and foster programs. Tahoe animal services are available at the Truckee Animal Shelter.
