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!
