SCACR Seeking Donations for 2nd Annual Flea Market

imageSCACR, better known as Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation, is seeking donations of saleable “stuff for the 2nd Annual Shelter “Flea” Market to benefit homeless shelter animals.  The flea market is June 24-25 at the County shelter, 3839 Bradshaw Road in Sacramento.  Because of community support and volunteer efforts, last year’s flea market was such a tremendous success that it enabled the Shelter to rehire a kennel attendant to care for the animals.  In hopeful anticipation of similar success this year, the event is being expanded to 2 days.  Last year’s success was due in large part to generous donations of saleable items from the community.  So–as you are doing spring cleaning of house, garage, yard and business, please consider donating your excess to the Shelter for the Flea Market.  The variety of things sold last year was amazing.  All proceeds will benefit the 15,000 animals that enter the Sacramento County Shelter each year, and donations are tax-deductible.

Saleable “stuff” includes new and gently used:BenAndJeri1

  • Household items and furniture
  • Antiques and “hip” vintage treasures
  • Patio and garden items
  • Children’s toys
  • Adult and children’s clothing
  • Working electronics
  • Bed and bath items
  • Pet products and supplies

To schedule a pick-up or drop off of saleable items, please call (916) 361-7604 or email SacCountyShelterFleaMarket@yahoo.com.  Due to limited storage space at the Shelter itself, items should not be dropped off at the Shelter.

This year’s Flea Market will include a raffle for donated goods and services too.  Raffle donations can be a great way for businesses to advertise and get new clients.  For more information on raffle donations, please use the contacts above.

PLEASE SAVE THE DATES!  Donate, Shop, and Help a Homeless Pet!

image9_thumbThe Sacramento County Animal Shelter cares for more than 15,000 stray, abandoned, abused and neglected animals every year. As one of the largest shelters in California, it has been providing critical services to the animals and people of Sacramento since 1964. It is also the only agency in Sacramento County that investigates and prosecutes cases of cruelty, which is a major component of their overall services.

The shelter lost 44 percent of their staff through budget cuts in the past year, and the remaining 6 kennel attendants care for an average of 318 animals per day, while the remaining 10 field officers cover almost 1,000 square miles of jurisdiction and respond to more than 25,000 field calls each year.  The Shelter needs your help to continue to shelter and care for these animals, preserve our adoption, volunteer, rescue and foster care programs, and to sustain their ability to provide critical animal services throughout the community.
