Sacramento SPCA
July 8, 2010

The Sacramento was not only a fabulous place to work, but a great place to adopt from as well. I worked there for about 2 years and have adopted a dog and 2 cats from there. Although I haven't worked there for almost 6 years, it's remains my most favorite job I've had to date (other than being a mommy). We have had to bring in pets for euthanasia as well and the staff at the SSPCA is amazing. We brought 2 of our cats last year, one in November due to kidney failure and one in December due to cancer. We were very sad and the staff knew exactly what to say and what not to say to help the situation. The provided comfort, and kleenex! We ended up making the decision to adopt again just after Christmas and our little "Tinkerbell" couldn't be a more perfect fit for our family. The adoption process was wonderful as always and we ended up with a beautiful spunky kitty! How any one could have put her in a dumpster is beyond us! The SSPCA has been the best no matter the situation. I recommend them to anyone looking to adopt a forever friend :)

The Great!

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

By adopting beautiful and wonderful pets, by having to come in for vet services, by having to have pets put down, and by working there for two years.

Ways to make it better...

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

Re hire the humane officers!

More feedback

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

how professional all of the staff is. The knowledge that each member of the staff had on each animal there.

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

very kind and knowledgeable people. The really desired for each animal to become someones pet and weren't just there for the paycheck.

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

rehire the humane officers, build more facilities, and care for SO many more homeless animals.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to wait so long!!! But hey it was the holiday season and there were MANY pets being adopted!

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

Funding.

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

The SSPCA is a great place and I will always go there for any adoptions in my future!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
