Pet of the Week- Lady!

Pet of the Week- Lady!

Such a little lady!

Less than a year old, this pretty girl is playful and confident and ready to explore. She's very friendly and loves attention. Lady had surgery a few weeks ago on her hip, but she's starting to use her leg again and it truly doesn't seem to slow her down. Her tail is as waggy as ever!

Lady should go to a home where children are old enough to understand how to play gently with her. She would also do best in a home where she is the only pet (no cats or other dogs!) and where there is often someone at home.

Please come down to the Sacramento SPCA and meet Lady today!

Pet of the Week- Cranberry!

Pet of the Week- Cranberry!

This shy little charmer has the prettiest red-gold coat, beautiful brown eyes, and long slender legs. She is very gentle, and somewhat timid with strangers, but in a calm home with adults or older teens she should settle right in to be a very affectionate little friend. Cranberry is an eight-year-old Chihuahua and gets along well with other small dogs, and might even be able to live with a cat or two. Cranberry qualifies for our "Seniors for Seniors" program: if her guardian is over 60, we'll waive her adoption fee.

Come visit Cranberry at the Sacramento SPCA today!

Mourning Doves build nest at construction site

Mourning Doves build nest at construction site

A pair of Mourning Doves that built a nest on a ladder at Mutual Housing at the Highlands briefly halted construction. 

Heather Fleming, Sunseri Construction Project Engineer, took the photo and the area was roped off until the young fledged.

Despite the delay, the new development in North Highlands will be completed on schedule in August.

Sacramento|Yolo Mutual Housing Association communities have 2,600 residents, half of whom are children.

Pet of the Week- Tucker

Pet of the Week- Tucker

Such a face! Tucker is a ten-and-a-half-year old Italian Spinone mix. He is young and sharp for his age, as well as gentle and outgoing. Tucker loves people and is friendly and well mannered on a leash! Tucker is best suited for a somewhat active home with adults or adults and older children. He should not live in a home with cats, and he is not a fan of pushy dogs. He is eligible for our Seniors for Seniors Adoption Program. This allows any adopter over the age of sixty, to have the adoption fees waived!

 

** Also going on now through the end of summer: All adult cats over one-year-old are FREE and kittens are half-off!!
