Join us at 6201 Florin Perkins Road on March 18 between 11am – 6pm to meet the next love of your life – and help us Empty the Shelters!” Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Sacramento – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.-- Pet adoption fees are waived now through Dec. 31 -- Kim Pacini-Hauch of Sacramento is sponsoring the adoption fees -- Goal is to have 1,000 animals adopted before the end of the yearTo better serve the needs of our clients and their pets, the vaccination clinic is now held in the Gracie’s Adoption Center of the Sacramento SPCA from 11am to 3pm every Monday and Tuesday. Note: The first Tuesday clinic of each month will be held for seniors (age 65+) only. If your pet’s vaccine is due the first Tuesday of the month, please attend the Monday clinic of the same week. You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Sacramento pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Sacramento is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Sacramento animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Sacramento County is setting up a pet adoption center in Fair Oaks intended to increase the odds of finding new homes for dogs and cats waiting at the busy animal shelter on Bradshaw Road.
