SSPCA is a kind, loving home for animals until they reach their forever home. Staff care deeply about their animals and strive to find the best people/homes for all. I like that they screen applicants thoroughly when it comes to adoptions. I've adopted many great, longtime canine companions over the last 25 years from the SSPCA and I appreciate the staff who take such loving care of all the animals who come into the facility.

I attended an event held by the SSPCA for pitbulls. The things they did that day from microchipping and shots to the special attention my dog received from the staff and volunteers was amazing

I have rescued several dogs, however, by far my favorite place to adopt a dog is the SSPCA. They go far beyond expectations in caring for the animals in their care.

Thank goodness for the Sacramento SPCA and the good work they do. My folks adopted their beautiful dog from the SPCA and I got my lovely kitty from there as well. There are so many dogs and cats in need of homes, every one as deserving as the next, and the SPCA staff and volunteers are committed and work long and hard to place as many animals as they can. I applaud the Sacramento SPCA and will continue to donate and recommend as the first option for adoption.

The people who work there are great. They are very informative and knowledgeable They do a really good job of screening for potiental animal abusers. They would rather keep the pet with them then to give them to bad people. They are professionals in everyway. Thank you, Jaime Gomez, proud owner of a great dog, "Milo"

I had been looking for a dog for awhile and immediately thought of the Sacramento SPCA in my quest for a loyal companion. I had never experienced going to a shelter before, so I had no idea what to expect. When I arrived at the Sacramento SPCA, I was floored by their beautiful, clean and respectable establishment located on a spacious lot I knew the animals would love. The adoption center is a gorgeous building that features interesting and unique animal-style artwork on the walls, tales of "Happy Endings" on a bulletin board, and inspiring quotes hanging from the ceilings. The staff was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in making my search for a pup an easy and fulfilling one. Unfortunately on my first few visits, I did not find the dog I was looking for. I continued to return to the shelter every few weeks to interact with some of the incredible pups in the adoption center, but none of us truly connected. I WAS pleased to see that the holding place where the pups are kept was clean and neat, and was happy to see that every animal had information available, fresh water in their bowls, and a warm blanket and a little squeak toy to sleep with. Determined to find a dog, I also perused the SSPCA's website and that's when I found him: a three-legged Border Collie named Mannie whom I thought was just THE cutest dog ever. A few days later, I visited the shelter again, pleased to find Mannie nestled in a bed in his little area. I was immediately assisted by a friendly staff member who walked Mannie and I into a special room where we could get to know each other better. The staff member explained Mannie had been shot and that was how he lost his front leg. She explained he needed a big space to run around (being a Border Collie) and lots of love and attention since the shooting had been recent. With Mannie, I instantly found the connection I'd needed, and within a few minutes, he was mine. I am forever grateful to the Sacramento SPCA for so many reasons. First and foremost, for helping all of these amazing dogs, cats, rabbits, and critters so desperate in need of a home. Without the Sacramento SPCA, so many animals would be killed out on their own and that's no way to treat an innocent animal. Secondly, because before I was able to take Mannie under my wing, they brought him in and took care of him. I have no doubt that Mannie was in the best hands while staying with the SSPCA, his wounds being treated by the best doctors and nurses in town, and being consoled by friendly and playful staff members. Third, because the Sacramento SPCA is an amazing and inspiring place where people can truly connect with animals in a fun-loving, clean and awesome environment. I can truly say that without the Sacramento SPCA, I would not be who I am today. They, and Mannie, have changed me for the better. The Sacramento SPCA deserves to be on the Great NonProfits Top Rated Animal NonProfits list because of the hard work but loving care they put into each animal every single day- and because I owe it to them for having such an amazing companion to call my own every single day.

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

Adopting my dog.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it more money, support and sponsorship so it can truly perform to the fullest in saving animals' lives.

More feedback...

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

the friendly staff members, the clean and inspiring environment, and meeting my best friend- my dog, Mannie.

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

very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, honest, playful, and true animal lovers.

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

Potentially save hundreds-if not thousands- of more needy dogs, cats, and critters in the Sacramento area. The SSPCA needs the support and sponsorship to fulfill its utmost potential.

Ways to make it better...

--None. It was great as it was.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The lack of sponsorship from the community and organizations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love, respect, admire and appreciate the Sacramento SPCA for everything it's done, is doing and will do to help animals around our area.

All of my animals are rescues and in recent years I have adopted four cats from the SPCA, two who live at my bookstore (and have a great life there!) and two at home. This organization is special and essential to caring for the overpopulation of pets. I wish I could adopt them all!

I was considering adopting a six year old schnauzer/black lab mix...who was seriously lacking social skills, when it was discovered that she had pain in her stomach area when you touched her. My first concern was a serious illness. It had only been nine months since having to put down my last dog who was 16 years old. The last thing I wanted to do was adopted another dog and have to put another one down so soon. The veterinarian at the SSPCA was wonderful! She understood my concerns and told me that she would try to rule out something simple that could be easily treated. After doing an ultrasound, blood work and urine test...all came back okay. The next day "Scruffy" was scheduled to be spayed and I asked her if she could "look around" while she was in there. She said yes and that they would call me with any results. After doing exploratory surgery they discovered some irritation around her stomach area and told me that everything would be okay. I now know that "Scruffy" had been the victim of abuse (kicked), which also explained her social issues. It has been a year and a half now and "Millie" is doing great! She still has some "issues", but don't we all. She's a wonderful companion and has learned to trust people. If it weren't for the diligence of that veterinarian at the SSPCA, Scruffy was a dog that would not have found a "forever home". I am actually going back to the SSPCA in two days to consider adopting a friend for Millie....a kitten. Thank you SSPCA!

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

They go above and beyond trying to find forever homes for these animals.

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

Great....from the front desk staff to the veterinarian.

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

I would hope....lessen the amount of animals that have to be euthanized.

The Sacramento SPCA is a wonderful organization. I am both a donor and a client. My husband and I adopted a delightful dog from them in 2009 and have enjoyed every minute with Pete! We also took advantage of their low cost obedience training and am happy to report that both owners and Petey are very well behaved.

When we lost our cat, who was a companion to our other dog Reagan, he became very depressed. The vet recommended we get another animal to keep him company. We went to the SPCA with Reagan in the hopes of finding a dog who would not dominate him, who had a similar playstyle and temperment, and who would also be loyal and loving with us. The volunteers at the SPCA were great. They allowed us to try several dogs that we picked out with Reagan in the play area while they evaluated. None of them worked out though! Frustrated we began to leave--that's when our helper told us she thought she had a perfect match. She brought out Izzy and at first we were a little apprehensive because she of her breed (she's an American Staffy). However she was perfect. She paid us cursory attention, but was really all about Reagan. She let him dominate her and was just super fun and cute. We've had her for over two years now, and we could not have asked for a better dog. She has the sweetest temperment and is extremely loyal and athletic.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

there are just so many unwanted animals, and the economy makes it tougher. It's hard enough for nonprofits to make it, but animals always seem to suffer the most.

One thing I'd also say is that...

you should participate in the Doggy Dash, it's super fun.
