I first went to the Sacramento SPCA when I was searching different programs out there to spay my newly rescued Chihuahuas. We got them from a lady we know who takes in dogs as a foster until she could find good homes for them instead of them going to a shelter. They came to us with no shot records and no training what so ever. I think they were just kept inside and not really well looked after. When I found out that the Sacramento SPCA had a low cost spay and neuter clinic I completely jumped on it. I was just starting out my career with the state and couldn’t afford to take them both to a local vet, they charge so much more. The service I received was so professional! I was amazed by how organized it was when I brought them in. I was able to afford for them to get their shots, get spayed and both be micro chipped. Without the Sacramento SPCA I wouldn’t have been able to afford all of that. The day after their spaying my smallest Chihuahua was limping. I called the clinic and asked what I could do. They assured me that it was just sore from being tied on the table, but told me if she was still limping in a couple hours to bring her back in. She ended up being fine. I thought that call was handled so professionally because I was pretty worried something went wrong. Because of how great our experience was with the clinic we decided to take their basic pet obedience training. We had two instructors. They were amazing. The class was relatively inexpensive, but the nice thing was that it was just for small dogs. They limit the amount of dogs per class so we could get some more one-on-one time with the instructors. The class was great and our dogs learned so much. The teachers really helped us learn how to teach our dogs to pay attention to us. We really bonded in that class. My dog Daisy ended up being the most improved student. We were pretty excited about that. Because of these experiences, we really want to applaud the Sacramento SPCA for all the extra things they offer besides shelter for animals. Great going Sacramento SPCA!!!!

The Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA)is a great animal shelter. The animals are all well cared for, the facility is bright and clean and the staff are all amazing.

When I adopted my two cats at the SSPCA some years ago, the staff was friendly and helpful, they took care of everything (spay/neuter, etc) and they were just wonderful to work with. I was with my mother and younger brother at the time, and they were polite and helpful to my mother and acknowledged my brother as well, which I greatly appreciated as so many businesses ignore the little ones. I adopted two great cats that have been wonderful additions to my life, and they are the best pets I've ever had.

SPCA was great in assisting us in adopting our beloved dog Moola (formerly Konami). They treated us great the moment we walked in the door! They allowed us to spend time with her. There was no rushing or pushing on their part. They talked us through the whole process and were very helpful when we were ready to bring Moola home. They offered a lot of information on what we needed in order to give our dog the best care possible. I am very thankful to their staff for their courtesy and knowledge of our dog. One thing that could have been different was the time it took us to bring her home. She was in sick bay with kennel cough when we adopted her. After a few weeks of her not healing, we did request to bring her home so that she could get some TLC at home and she healed quickly. I know that protocol was put into play, but it was a bit of a wait for us.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the adoption of my dog. Moola is an American Staffordshire Pitbull. Being the bad press the breed has gotten not many shelters will be so willing to keep this breed for long in their shelters and give us such great reviews of her. I am very grateful.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the helpful staff and the cleanliness of the facility.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great. They were very helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

they would be able to make the facility bigger to support more animals and continue their program of spaying/neutering Pitbulls for those that are low income.

I adopted Pumpkin from the SPCA in 2004. He was a kitten then and had been born with only a stub for a tale. I love cats without tails, so I took him home after getting to know him in the SPCA "meet and greet" room. He is the most amazing cat I've ever encountered (and others have said the same) because he is affectionate, comes when called, and wants to be in whatever room we are in. He is an amazing part of the family. I adopted Shaggy in 2008. My husband and I had just bought our first home and moved in on September 1st. On September 5th I was tired of unpacking and decided to visit my local SPCA on a whim. That's where I saw Shaggy, the bearded collie/poodle mix. He had only been there for a couple days, and I knew he would be adopted soon because of how cute he was. So I snatched him up, and I'm so glad I did. I feel like our lives, and the lives of our friends and family, have been enriched by Shaggy's presence. I have never had such an affectionate, happy, friendly, adorable dog. I miss him the moment I leave the house and can't wait to see him when I return. We have done obedience training at the SPCA as well as had our family Christmas portraits taken through their Santa Paws program for the past two years. We also participate with Shaggy in the annual Doggie Dash event. I thank the Sacramento SPCA can aiding my family in having a better life through the love of animals we adopted there!

I have adopted three cats from the Sacramento SPCA - all were incredibly happy and healthy, and I could tell from their paperwork that they recieved the absolute best care from the SPCA, including hours of socialization that helped them immediately settle into my home. My first cat was so calm and socialized and healthy that it enabled me to adopt a second, and eventually a third, all from the SPCA. The incredible level of care they obviously received in fact inspired me to become a volunteer at the SPCA to help other animals in need of loving care.
