The mission of the Sacramento SPCA is to foster a loving and compassionate community for companion animals and people by providing assistance, creating lifelong relationships, and saving lives. Since 1892, the Sacramento SPCA has worked to reduce pet overpopulation through affordable spay/neuter services, promote the humane treatment of animals through education and outreach, and assist pet owners through various programs and services designed to keep pets and their families together for life.
A Grey Muzzle grant will support the Sacramento SPCA’s new wellness referral program for low-income clients needing assistance treating their animals with urgent illnesses or injuries. This generous funding will allow them to care for ten senior dogs and return them, healthy and happy, to their families. While this is a new public initiative, SSPCA’s clinic has already provided care for senior dogs like thirteen-year-old terrier Jack, who had a mass removed and an exam for his heart murmur. With Grey Muzzle’s support, they will give even more senior dogs the care they need to stay in their loving homes.
