SPCA Pet of the Week- Cheeto

"His happiness is contagious" says a volunteer when describing this cute, little Chihuahua named Cheeto. At only eleven-pounds, this little guy is spunky and spry, perfect for a family on the go! He loves to play (especially fetch) and run around the yard, but also spend as much time as possible with you. Due to his small size, he prefers adults or older children and also the company of small, friendly dogs. He is about six-years-old and is ready for a new home!

$5,000 reward offered for capture of culprit behind Sacramento cat burning

SACRAMENTO, CA - A $5,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person responsible for a horrible case of animal abuse.

According to Front Street Animal Shelter Care Service Manager Gina Knepp, a resident on Manorside Drive in South Sacramento saw a young kitten walking in the area of Manorside an Meadowglen Avenue on Aug. 9. The resident said they took notice of the kitten because it appeared to be following a person walking down the street.

The next day, the resident found the kitten in his driveway, suffering from severe burns and smelling strongly of gasoline, said Knepp.

The Samaritan took the kitten to the South Sacramento Veterinary Hospital and paid for the necessary treatment, then took the cat home.

Several days later, the person was forced to surrender the 4-month-old male kitten to the Front Street Animal Shelter when its condition did not seem to be improving.

Our sweet girl Drew is up for adoption! This happy, goofy, three-year-old love bug is a staff and volunteer favorite here at the shelter. She has been with us since May, and we are determined to find her a home! Drew is great with other dogs and older kids. She is energetic and lively, but just enough to balance out her snuggling, cuddle-bug side.
