The Gilbert family went shopping for the homeless animals at the CCSPCA Animal Center. They wanted to make sure that the animals would have a Merry Christmas, so they gave the donations to the offsite adoption team while they were at PetSmart doing adoptions. This spirit booster goes a long way for all of the caring staff and volunteers at the CCSPCA. It is great to come back to the Animal Center with empty pet carriers because the animals have been adopted, but with full arms of goodies for the animals still at the Center awaiting their turn! Thank you to the Gilbert family for making spirits bright!!!

We will be posting a article featuring each of the horses along with regular overall updates on the horses and their needs.
We need hay please to be donated!
We have finished half of the evaluations of the horses and should finish those next week.
Featuring Little John
Little John arrived at the shelter the night of 11-17-2011 totally emaciated. A kind man found him wandering around and brought him down to the Shelter. The following morning he was examined by our medical staff and it was determined that it appeared to be a lack of nourishment that caused his weight loss…no obvious medical reason. What this means is that somebody locked him up somewhere and just didn’t feed him. A horse wandering around on his own could find something to eat. Even weeds growing on the side of the road would provide some nourishment.
In the beginning he suffered a few belly aches, as his tummy wasn’t used to being filled. We started him out with small amounts of food, given often and gradually he started gaining weight and strength. Now after several months of a steady diet he’s recovered from his ordeal and is looking for a new home. We believe him to be about 12-13 years old, he enjoys being brushed and is a pretty friendly guy.The staff enjoys visiting him and he loves all the attention. There is a possibility that he is saddle broke, but will need an experienced hand. He will need structured exercise to continue to build up his muscles, now that he has reached a more normal weight. We are keeping our fingers crossed as we may have a home for Lil John.
On Tuesday March 20th, 2012 two very determined and beautiful young ladies Allison Johnson and Camryn Gonzales inFresno paid the CCSPCA a visit. With the help of Allison’s mother, Kim, the three pulled up in front of the adoption building and unloaded a truck full of goodies. These young girls had stepped forward and took up the challenge….”Let’s make a difference in the world”. They decided to do a fundraiser to help not only raise money for the neglected and malnourished horses that had been confiscated by the Central California SPCA, but also to help the many other animals here at the SPCA’s “Open Door Shelter”. After just two weeks and 24 decorated signs and boxes later, they managed to raise a pile of food, toys, blankets, litter pans, paper towels, treats, dog biscuits and much more for the unwanted and homeless animals in our care…and the success of their mission did not end there.
All of this began with just a single idea, a willingness to help, and a spirit of giving. Just think…a month or so of preparation and some hard work is all it took for Allison and Camryn to detail out their strategy and put their plan into action, ending with two smiling 13 year olds doing something very special…making a difference and showing that all of us can give to a creature less fortunate a little “bit of heaven”. These 2 eighth graders have proven that with hard work, determination and a giving heart that anything is possible. Our deepest and sincerest appreciation to these two girls for their compassion and interest in the welfare of the many horses and animals in our care. May we also extend a wonderful thank you to all of those who contributed to the success and support of Allison and Camyrn’s project “Fundraiser”….may it serve to be an example for all of us, and may it bring joy and warmth to Allison and Camyrn to know that they did an awesome job and you should feel very proud of yourselves!
On behalf of all of us here at the SPCA and our furry friends and companions we serve, the best of luck in future endeavors…remember great thing are always done by the littlest acts of kindness.
Today the sun was shining in the eyes of Mildred Wedgeworth as we shared just how much her birthday donation meant to all the horses. Mildred saved up for her entire 99th year to donate $505.81! We shared photos of the horses she is helping, and she shared a lovely song!! We look forward to future visits where we will get to tell her about some of the horses having new homes.
Our staff are all smiles when they see the truck pull in with a load of hay! A big thank you to all of our donors that have been helping with the horses! Currently we go through 8 to 10 bails a day for feeding the 38 horses at the Animal Center. It is heart warming to hear all the whinnies when the horses know it is feeding time! The hay not only helps them rehabilitate heath-wise, it helps behaviorally. They are getting used to human interaction and are beginning to realize humans are ok. We also have to share our gratitude for our dedicated Officers that have been working above and beyond to bring in the horses, care for the horses, cover all of their other duties, and fall in love with ALL of the horses!!!
We will continue to need ongoing donations of hay and senior feed to rehabilitate all of the horses on their way to new homes and lives!
We now have over 30 horses here at the Animal Center and while we have received a number of generous donations, we are always in need of everyday items. Here is a list of items we can start using today. Thank you!
