”Why do we make these hilarious videos about cats? Because it’s fun! Because it brings us joy to do it, and we hope that it brings you a little bit of happiness to watch them. And it’s a great way for us to help promote adoptable cats and animal welfare in a light-hearted way, while showcasing rescues we think are doing an awesome job.”

~~Complimentary Adoptions for Veterans, Nov 8, 9, 10 at Area Shelters~~
In honor of Veteran’s Day, Sacramento area shelters are offering complimentary adoptions to active armed services members and all veterans with a military ID card. We thank the men and women of this country for their service, dedication and protection, and providing them the unconditional love of a companion animal is a small token of appreciation.
For non-veterans, adult cat adoptions have also been reduced to just $5 for this event.

Sacramento County Animal Care thanks all the people who supported them this weekend and their #EmptySacShelters #megamatch partners Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary, Front Street Animal Shelter – City of Sacramento and Sacramento SPCA.
Last weekend’s “Empty our Shelters Project” adoption promotion had a goal of 500 collective adoptions amongst the local area shelters, and we knocked it out of the park with 525! Sacramento County Animal Care alone had 179 adoptions, comprised of 107 cats/kittens, 66 dogs/puppies, and 6 rabbits!!!
The individual numbers:
20 – Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary
156 – Front Street Shelter
170 – Sacramento SPCA
179 – Sacramento County Animal Care
The nature of sheltering in Sacramento has come a long way; in even just the past 5 five years so much has changed. In addition to significant improvements in standards of care, the allocation of resources for extensive medical treatment, increased emphasis on behavior rehabilitation, rescue efforts, foster care, and community outreach, among the shifts has been greater collaboration between our local shelters. In 2007, we developed a community shelter coalition working together on common goals through the ASPCA’s Mission Orange initiative. This partnership has helped drive the shelters to be the best we can be, individually and collaboratively, and this weekend’s adoption successes are testament to what teamwork can accomplish!
Thank you Sacramento!

No art experience is necessary! These workshops, run by Creative Juices Events, are very popular—the last few have been sell-outs–and a lot of painters return over and over again.

“Rescue animals aren’t broken, they’ve simply experienced more life than other animals. If they were human we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity them. Do something. Help to rescue. Donate. Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.” ~Pedigree
