Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
July 8, 2010

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!!!!
