We have had an eventful quarter full of stories of sadness and stories of hope; as is always the case in animal rescue. As we continue to assist the most in need and at risk pets and pet owners of the Sacramento Valley, we find ourselves caring for animals that touch our hearts and reaching sucesses that fill us with pride.
Last month we became aware of a family selling the tiniest chihuahua puppies out of their car parked in front of a Walmart in Lake County. One of our volunteers intervened and rescued the pups and brought them to our facility to ensure they received the care they needed, and would be placed in the most appropriate of homes. These pups were so tiny that all three of them fit in a cat carrier with lots of room to spare. They shivered and cuddled against anything warm. They dove headfirst into their food bowls. As they were still a couple weeks away from being old enough for adoption, we housed them in our boutique rescue until homes could be found. Without too much time at all they began to play and run and THRIVE! They recevied their first vaccines, worming treatment and microchips. Of course, these darling babies found their most amazing forever homes right at eight weeks of age. We are thankful to have been able to swoop in and make sure that these babies not only received the care they needed but will now be spayed and neutered when old enough and have a lifetime of love and care in their permanant homes.
Last month we also received Lucy, a nine year old cat that belonged to a former volunteer of ours who is now gravely ill and unable to care for her any longer. This is such an important service we provide. Every day some loving pet owners find themselves medically unable to care for their pets any longer. Our rescue is there to help. We are still seeking Lucy's home. In the meantime she has a cattery of her own to play and nap and enjoy herself. Her care is now our responsisbility.
