Pet of the Week- Kai

Pet of the Week- Kai

Look at that smile!

Kai is a big love dog. She is very affectionate, and loves to cuddle, give kisses and play! Kai is a one-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who, depsite being fairly medium sized, she thinks she is a lap dog!  She enjoys playing outside and going on walks. She is great on a leash and is also good about staying close to her walking buddy.

Kai would do best in a somewhat active home and should do fine with older children and other dogs at home.

This beautiful girl is very special indeed. Find out more about her and other great pets online at www.sspca.org!

Pet of the Week- Chewy!

Pet of the Week- Chewy!

Chewy is such a little gentleman! This six-and-a-half-year old Miniature Schnauzer mix loves to both sit in your lap and/or go for walks. He does great on a  leash and is playful when he gets outside! (He also had really soft fur!)

Chewy would do best in a somewhat active energetic home. He would do well with older children and should do fine with another dog and/or cat at home. He is a bright boy and would do well with a little training to help him focus his energetic nature. Chewy is eligble for our Senior for Senior Program where adoption fees are waived for adopters age 60+ adopting animals who are ages five- years-old and up. Check out Chewy online at www.sspca.org!

Sacramento man sentenced for killing 2 dogs

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Sacramento National Guardsman has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to two felony counts of animal abuse.

Ramone Dupree King Jr. was accused of drowning a neighbor's chihuahua by putting it in a washing machine and turning the machine on. The dog had reportedly bit a child. That was in April 2010.

Several weeks later, King's girlfriend reported he kicked her Pomeranian to death after it urinated in his bedroom.

When first charged, King initially denied killing the chihuahua and claimed the Pomeranian's death was an accident, according to Shelly Orio, spokeswoman for the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office.

King enlisted in the California National Guard in 2006, said spokesman Major Jonathan Shiroma. King has not been deployed into combat.

King did not have a prior criminal record. He was sentenced to two years and eight months behind bars.
