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 a variety of programs and services designed to keep pets and their families together for life.
The Sacramento SPCA is thrilled to receive a second grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to support their Pawspice program, which helps dogs who have received a terminal diagnosis but still have a good quality of life. By covering the cost of palliative care, the Sacramento SPCA is able to find homes for senior dogs who may not otherwise have been adopted, dogs just like Roxy. Roxy has a terminal heart condition that is being managed with medication. With the help of Grey Muzzle, the Sacramento SPCA will provide Roxy with regular exams, x-rays, and medication to maintain her quality of life. Roxy—and many other senior dogs like her—will enjoy their golden years in the loving care of a forever family.
