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.

1,500 pets go to new homes over holidays

SACRAMENTO, CA - More than 1,500 previously homeless animals are enjoying a new chance at life, thanks to a massive effort by the Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento Animal Care Services, Sacramento County Animal Control & Regulation, and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

The collective goal was to unite 1,000 pets with new owners between Black Friday and the end of the year, and the group surpassed that goal by an impressive 561 adoptions.

"We are happy to announce that Sacramento's animal shelters surpassed our goal by more than 500 adoptions this holiday season," said Rick Johnson, Sacramento SPCA Chief Executive Officer. "The 1,561 adoptions that were done between the four shelters means 1,561 happy endings. We all work hard for those happy endings."

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.
