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

Jogger bit by unknown dog in West Sacramento

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - The Animal Services Section of the Yolo County Sheriff's Office hopes the public can help with a dog bite case.

According to a news release issued by the sheriff's department, a jogger on the 3500 block of Bridge Lake Drive in West Sacramento on Oct. 6 was bitten by a dog on a leash. The time was about 11 a.m. The woman walking the dog assured the jogger her dog was inoculated against rabies but the jogger didn't obtain any other information about the dog or woman to confirm that. Now the victim may have to undergo a series of post-exposure rabies prevention vaccinations.

The dog was described as of medium size, short-haired and mostly black with some reddish markings. The dog was on a red leash.

The woman walking the dog was described as white, around 50 years old, with long, light brown hair down to the middle of her back. She wore a white t-shirt, black spandex shorts and very large glasses, according to the jogger.

Yolo County Animal Services Seeks Home for Illuminating Kitty

The Yolo County Sheriff's Office, Animal Services Section, is searching for that special someone for "Ember", also known as Yolo County Animal Services Shelter ID number A110442.  "Ember" was found stranded atop a utility pole on Chaparral Way in West Sacramento.  Neighbors had seen this cat on top of the pole for days and were distraught by his plight but absolutely helpless to do anything.  Then along came Evan Cliff with PG&E to the rescue!  Evan cleared out his large tool belt and climbed up the utility pole very carefully, all the while wincing inside knowing this cat was within mere inches of being electrocuted or seconds away from jumping. When he got to the top he carefully picked up this scared feline, held him to his chest, then gently placed him in his tool belt for the climb down.  Miraculously this rescue went off without a hitch!
