A group of dogs surrendered to Placer SPCA are seeking safe and loving homes where they can receive the attention and care they deserve after a difficult start in life.

These incredibly adorable pups came to Placer SPCA from a hoarding situation with over 80 dogs in one home. Because of their unfortunate history, these dogs are not used to receiving one-on-one care, love, and attention. They are in need of patient families who really want to make a difference in the life of one of these special dogs and will understand each of their individual unique needs.

Some of these pups were incredibly fearful when they first arrived, but during their time at Placer SPCA, thanks to dedicated staff and volunteers, they have begun to come out of their shells and are learning to trust humans. However, they still have a ways to go. Some are older, some are young, some have recently given birth to puppies, and all are in need of special people who will give them time and space to adjust to their new lives.

They may need a little extra tender loving care, but the Placer SPCA believes these pups will continue to improve in the right home and learn how to lead the most normal lives they can.

Though they may do well in their homes after they acclimate, they may still become fearful and overwhelmed in public. Their new families will need to understand that they may never be able to go on a walk to the park or travel far from home. “They can still blossom into loving family pets, when given the right amount of love, patience, and understanding,” says Placer SPCA CEO Leilani Fratis, “and we are committed to going the extra mile to help them find their forever homes.”

If you are interested in giving one of these dogs a second chance, please contact Placer SPCA at (916) 782-7722 x0 to schedule an appointment, or our adoption center located at 200 Tahoe Avenue in Roseville is open from browsing Tuesday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
