On August 23, our Adoption/Education booth was out at Woodward Park’s annual “Pup Run.” Walkers/runners brought their dogs to the marathon and enjoyed an animal resource fair along with contesting for top prizes for the run. We encouraged potential adopters to visit the shelter at our River Park location to check out more of our adoptable animals.
Mackenzie adopted little Cinci the Shepherd blend at the event. Together they will make great companions and come by next year as marathon contestants, too.
Little Joey was adopted by the Bettencourt’s on July 4, from the CCSPCA – Adoption #779. He was delivered to his new home in Oregon by friends on July 26th where he met them and his new big sister Maggie – a CCSPCA Alumni – for the first time. It was love at first sight all around. Maggie took on the big sister role right away and showed Joey all the cool things in the yard. His favorite was the chickens. On Sunday, Maggie insisted that they take Joey to see her favorite place ….the beach…where they took their first family photo.
Julio Zepeda adopted a wonderful and loving Shepherd named “Samantha” at no charge from the Central California SPCA. The CCSPCA is honoring all first responders by waiving the adoption fee. Congrats!
Congratulations to the Townsend family who adopted sweet little “Honey” at the Dominion Courtyard Villas adoption event this past weekend!
We hit a milestone over the weekend with adoption number 500! That puts us at almost 20% of the way towards our goal of saving 2,880 animals during our 100K Challenge! Thank you to everyone who has helped us save 500 lives so far!
Molly the Maltipoo came to our Animal Center in late May, hair matted and extremely scared. She was so scared of the shelter environment that she would try biting at the staff members. Our Rescue Coordinator, Kim Yrigollen, wasn’t about to have that kind of attitude at the animal center, so she took it upon herself to work with Molly. After spending time with Kim, Molly warmed up to her and her attitude changed completely. As soon as Molly started to trust our animal center staff, Kim placed a post on Facebook asking for a special family to “foster to adopt” Molly.
Tabitha D. quickly responded to Kim’s post and scheduled a time to meet Molly. Tabitha also brought along her dog Hurley, a Labrador retriever. Molly and Hurley got along splendidly! Tabitha decided to adopt Molly that same day and they have been great together since!
We recently received an email update from Tabitha about Molly. Here is a short excerpt from Tabitha’s email: “She’s doing great with the other dogs and pretty good with the kitties. So far she has been practicing car rides, walks with her new harness, and even some swimming with the big dogs! Thank you so much for giving her a chance and helping her find a home. We are very happy with her. We will be starting obedience classes with her in July and can’t wait to see her blossom into a secure, confident member of our pack!”
Thank you, Tabitha, and family for giving Molly the forever home she deserves!

Congratulations to Paloma, as she found her new forever home with Richard Evans. May you have many wonderful years together!
You may recall the story of “Vicking,” a poor, starving Thoroughbred we seized in January this year …. http://ccspca.com/blog-spca/help-save-the-lives-of-our-equine-friends/
Due to the generosity of our supporters and the loving care of staff at our Animal Center, we are overjoyed to tell you that Vicking has found his forever home with Jamielyn Moe! Congratulations and Happy Trails to Vicking and his new family!
This cutie is a Beagle/Terrier blend that gets to settle in at her new home and family today!
