Staying safe in a heat wave

Staying safe in a heat wave

Five days of 100 degree+ heat are in the forecast through the weekend and until the 4th of July. That's dangerous heat for both people and pets, warns the Yolo County Health Department.

Health officials and animal welfare experts are reminding residents in West Sacramento and throughout the county to protect themselves and their pets, says county spokeswoman Beth Gabor in a press release.

Especially vulnerable, say experts, are:

Front Street Shelter Adoption Events

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

Blind pug robbed by diabetes struggles for surgery

SACRAMENTO, CA -- A Sacramento pug rescue group is reaching out to animal lovers in hopes of providing a much needed surgery for one of their precious pugs.  

Eight year-old Mija (Mee-ha) is a playful pug who loves to snuggle. She was rescued by PugSavers, a Northern California pug rescue group, after her owner, who loved her dearly couldn't afford special care for her diabetes. Mija's foster family has been taking great care of her until she finds her forever home, but recently her condition has worsened causing blindness in both of her eyes. 

It has been recommended by a specialist that both of Mija's eyes be removed to help with her diabetes and alleviate what has now become a painful condition.

Give A Holiday Gift: Open Your Heart to a Pug

Give A Holiday Gift: Open Your Heart to a Pug

SACRAMENTO,CA--With the holidays comes an incredible need, one that is not seen by most, but when discovered hard to ignore.

Cuddly, warm- hearted, peppy Pugs of all ages are left homeless in a season when animals are not top priority.

Some are abandoned, others surrendered only to be left at a shelter or area pound where their lives are often cut short due to overcrowding.  

Pug Rescue of Sacramento is a non-profit organization dedicated to making sure that doesn’t happen. PRO’s is comprised of Bay Area and Sacramento volunteers prepared to mobilize when needed, but during the winter months their numbers are few. That’s why PRO’s is asking for the community’s help to lend a hand and save a warm-hearted, loyal Pug in need of a loving home.
