Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
July 9, 2010

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.

Ways to make it better...

NA

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
