Placer SPCA Ranked 4-Stars for Eighth Consecutive Year
Roseville, CA - Placer SPCA is proud to announce that for the eighth year in a row, we have received four out of four stars from Charity Navigator, America's largest independent charity evaluator, for our sound fiscal management practices and commitment to accountability and transparency.
Placer SPCA ranks in the top 1% of charities that has received 4-stars for eight consecutive years, indicating that our organization outperforms most other charities in the country.
"Placer SPCA's coveted 4-star rating puts them in a very select group of high-performing charities," according to Ken Berger, President and CEO, Charity Navigator. "Out of the thousands of nonprofits Charity Navigator evaluates, only one out of four earns 4-stars. Placer SPCA's supporters should feel much more confident that their hard-earned dollars are being used efficiently and responsibly."

We are dedicated to facilitating the humane treatment of animals in Placer County as well as a safer, healthier community overall. The Placer SPCA is funded solely by donations, grants, bequests and fees for service.
"It's important for those who invest in our organization - our donors - to know we are responsibly managing our resources." says Leilani Fratis, CEO, Placer SPCA. "Our transparency also provides a clear picture of the impact our donor dollars have on the people and animals we serve."
