Pet of the Week- Romeo

Pet of the Week- Romeo

Meet our little Romeo!

Probably because he's such a lover, Romeo was given the purr-fect name! He's about two-years-old and is a soft, lovable thing! Romeo is friendly and will likely follow you around the house like a little shadow. Romeo is declawed, which means that he must be an Indoor Only pet. He doesn't seem to mind however, as he spends his days sitting on the windowsill taking in the view of outside. Romeo will require routing brushing for his long, fluffy coat. Come meet Romeo and his other cat friends at the Sacramento SPCA!

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Sacramento pug rescue group is reaching out to animal lovers in hopes of providing a much needed surgery for one of their precious pugs.  

Eight year-old Mija (Mee-ha) is a playful pug who loves to snuggle. She was rescued by PugSavers, a Northern California pug rescue group, after her owner, who loved her dearly couldn't afford special care for her diabetes. Mija's foster family has been taking great care of her until she finds her forever home, but recently her condition has worsened causing blindness in both of her eyes. 

It has been recommended by a specialist that both of Mija's eyes be removed to help with her diabetes and alleviate what has now become a painful condition.

1,500 pets go to new homes over holidays

SACRAMENTO, CA - More than 1,500 previously homeless animals are enjoying a new chance at life, thanks to a massive effort by the Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento Animal Care Services, Sacramento County Animal Control & Regulation, and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

The collective goal was to unite 1,000 pets with new owners between Black Friday and the end of the year, and the group surpassed that goal by an impressive 561 adoptions.

"We are happy to announce that Sacramento's animal shelters surpassed our goal by more than 500 adoptions this holiday season," said Rick Johnson, Sacramento SPCA Chief Executive Officer. "The 1,561 adoptions that were done between the four shelters means 1,561 happy endings. We all work hard for those happy endings."
