Pet of the Week- Meet Brody!

Pet of the Week- Meet Brody!

Brody is an eight-year-old Pointer mix who loves to be outside, go for walks, play with toys, or all of the above! He is described as being “one of the best behaved dogs” at the shelter, so we know he will make a lucky family really happy! Also, any potential adopter should take note: He is OK with cats but will prefer to be the only dog in your home. 

Brody paid a visit to the FOX40 studio on Tuesday morning and had a great time riding in the car and meeting everyone at the station!

Brody’s age qualifies him for our Senior Companionship Program: Any adopter over the age of sixty can have the adoption fees waived. Find out more online at www.sspca.org!

Pet of the Week- Mr. Smokey!

Pet of the Week- Mr. Smokey!

Mr. Smokey will steal your heart!

He is a sweet, friendly, eight-year-old Jack Russel Terrier mix who is typical of his breed, in that he is both confident and independent. He really enjoys being outside and is happy to show off tricks like 'sit' and 'stay.' Some positive reinforcement training will help him to learn to focus his energy and learn even more commands.

Mr. Smokey would do best in a somewhat active home with experienced adult owner. He should do fine in a home with teenagers but does need to be an only pet. He is eligible for our Senior for Senior Program in which adoption fees are waived for adopters 60 years old and older adopting animals 5 year and older.

Looking for a mate to explore the world? Come out and meet Mr. Smokey!

Sacramento teen and his dog attacked by 2 strays

SACRAMENTO - A 17-year-old boy and his small dog were attacked by two stray dogs while walking through their south Sacramento neighborhood Friday morning.

According to Sacramento police, the teen was walking his dog when a pitbull and a mix breed attacked his pup. In an attempt to save his dog, the boy reached in between the fight and was bitten on the hand and arm.

The small dog, named Your Highness, suffered a puncture wound.

The two attacking dogs were taken by animal control.  The owner of the two dogs arrived shortly thereafter.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and his dog had not been taken to a vet at the time.

Both the pitbull and mix had licenses but it was unclear whether their rabies vaccinations were current.
