Animal Services

Woman Holding Dog

Placer County Animal Services' mission is to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of the animals and people in our community. Through collaborative and sustainable partnerships, we strive to improve the lives of the animals in our care through community outreach and education, providing veterinary treatment and preventative care, reuniting lost pets with their families and ensuring positive outcomes through adoption, rescue or foster programs.

Tahoe animal services are available at the Truckee Animal Shelter.
