Supervisors to Consider Contract with Town of Truckee for Use of its Animal Shelter

Published on January 16, 2015

Placer County Animal Services provides legally mandated services to the entire county. In unincorporated eastern Placer County, which includes all areas from Emigrant Gap to the Nevada state line, services are run out of the Tahoe Vista shelter. For much of eastern Placer County, the aging Tahoe Vista shelter is out of the way and inconvenient. Next Tuesday at its Tahoe City meeting in Granlibakken, the Placer County Board of Supervisors will consider contracting with the Town of Truckee to use its modern Animal Shelter for the eastern side of Placer County. The proposal to shift the services to Truckee comes after the county’s analysis showed that the move would not only save the county a significant amount of money, but more importantly, improve the level of service and care provided to the animals.
