Jack the pup
Jack the pup

What a summer its been!  With the double "whammy" of animal services still being slow to recover from covid closures, and the worst summer heat on record, we have been in full blown emergency rescue mode most of the summer.

Just this month we have seen two of the most extreme cases of rescue we have ever encountered.  Jack is a little Jack Russell mix that had been left outside on the porch for the entire week of the most exteme heat Sacramento has ever seen.  Every day neighbors were heartbroken to hear him crying on the porch alone.  Finally, a neighbor and Good Sense Dogs supporter, intervened and asked the owners about the dog.  They were happy to surrender him to our care.  He was so thirsty we wondered if he'd ever be satiated.  He was so thankful for rescue he jumped and barked, though his barks were muffled and scratchy due to his dehydration.  Jack is now in a loving foster home and is hoping to find his forever home soon.

Lefty is a young kitten found in a field, nearly dead, in the middle of the heat of the day.  It was clear he hadn't had food or water in a very long time.  He barely moved.  When brought to us we felt he may not even make it through the hour.  He did!  And then through the night...and then through the next days.   Lefty is clearly a fighter, and we are fighting for him.  He is receiving the highest level of nutritian and nutured constantly.  We are still not out of the woods with Lefty, but every day we have more hope.

Its because of supporters like you that we are able to help animals in extreme need like Jack and Lefty.  You help us help others!  Thank you!
