Dear Animal Welfare Supporter,

By now, you probably know we have a passion for serving the people and animals in Placer County at the highest level of professionalism. Whether serving customers at our Used Book Store in Auburn, responding to animal cruelty complaints, disseminating animal care information to the public or providing temporary animal assistance, we continually strive for excellence.

The important part is, we believe that protecting and stopping animals from cruel treatment is more about educating animal owners than it is about enforcing animal cruelty laws. In most cases, we're helping cooperative owners by providing pet food, equipment, and other resources with personalized and professional service. However, when owners persist in treating their animals cruelly, we'll never walk away from helping those animals.
