The Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento Animal Care Services, Sacramento County Animal Care & Regulation and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary are holding a joint “Home for the Holidays” pet adoption special which will run through Dec. 30.
The four participating shelters will take in more than 35,000 homeless animals this year alone. This figure represents an increase over previous years due to the poor economy and other factors. Sacramento animal shelters are overburdened with hundreds of animals seeking permanent homes. Through “Home for the Holidays,” the shelters will work together to boost adoptions, and will strive to facilitate 1,000 additional adoptions before the end of the year.
