Volunteers toughen up bobcat kitten who's too sweet

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California animal rescue group is trying to help an orphaned bobcat kitten with a problem: She's too nice.

The Sacramento Bee says the kitten was only a few weeks old when she was found in August by fire crews who battled a 75,000-acre fire in the Plumas National Forest.

The bobcat, which had burned paws, would follow the crew and nuzzle their boots. Named Chips, she was taken to the Sierra Wildlife Rescue in Placerville last month.

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.

Pet of the Week- Clark!

Pet of the Week- Clark!

Meet Clark!

An adorable and young Chihuahua mix is looking for a home this holiday season! At just a year old, Clark has all the characteristics of an outgoing and fun dog, but he's also a little on the shy side. Once he warms up to you (and he will, don't you worry!) he loves to go on walks or even be carried. He's happy on your lap and is a friendly and affectionate little guy. He's looking for a home with older kids or teens as he's not a big fan of little kids.

Don't miss our 'Home for the Holidays' promotion going on NOW through December 30. All adoption fees are 75% off! www.sspca.org
