Congratulations to Doreen Allen on her adoption of Wayward Storm!

Posted on: January 13th, 2014 by CCSPCA

Congratulations to Doreen Allen on her adoption of Wayward Storm, a beautiful bay thoroughbred gelding!

Our Humane Officers seized Wayward Storm and a number of other neglected horses in the Auberry area in early August 2013. Wayward Storm had suffered a very deep laceration to a hind leg due to becoming entangled in barb wire fencing. He has been under the great care of our skilled veterinarians, Dr. Swanson of All Creatures Veterinary Clinic, and our staff and was ready to find a loving forever home.

Happy trails to Wayward Storm & Doreen!

Cricket finds a home!

Posted on: August 15th, 2012 by CCSPCA

We are happy to announce that Cricket, our Palomino gelding from the Sanger group, was adopted on Saturday. He will be living at Shadow Glen Stables in Sacramento.

In order for him to trailer more comfortably in the heat, Kelly, his new owner, decided to haul him at night. She arrived to pick him up at 10 pm.

Cricket will join a very well-cared for group of horses that ride along the Sacramento River and teach beginners about horse ownership and riding. Dr. Katy Byrd ( our CCSPCA Veterinarian ) will get to see him often, as she works at Shadow Glen about every 8 weeks. His primary veterinarian is Diana Stolba of Loomis Basin Equine.

We are excited to share a few photos of him when ready to go and when leaving with Kelly. They both look so happy.

Thanks, Kelly, and thanks to Linda for arranging this all on a Saturday! Thank you to his long term care takers for working with him and providing all that he needed to go to a great home!!

Stork Watch – The Sequel

Posted on: May 3rd, 2012 by CCSPCA

Well folks, here we are again. Our second mare, Holly, is getting ready to give us another new bundle of joy. We had hoped that she would hold off a little bit, but she decided that now is the time. We are expecting her to deliver in the next few days. Holly came in with Rosie and she too, was very thin. We are hopeful that since Rosie’s delivery went well, that Holly will have an easy time as well. However, we all know that that doesn’t mean much. So join us once again and hopefully we’ll have good news soon. And, maybe a second name the baby contest. With any luck, it will be a girl.

Today we asked Holly if today was the day, and just like Rosie – who knew which day would be her delivery day – Holly nodded yes that today would be her day! Let’s hope!

Thumper, Rabbit, and Oliver Find a Home

Posted on: May 3rd, 2012 by CCSPCA

We first received a call of a horse down on Jan 6, 2012. When our Humane Officer arrived on scene, he found Thumper down and unable to rise. Both Thumper and Rabbit were extremely thin. The officers spent about 4 hours coaxing, pushing, shoving, bribing and begging and finally got Thumper to his feet. The owner showed up shortly after that and advised the officer that he had just gotten the horses a week prior and was trying to get them back to good health. The officer advised the owner he needed to get a veterinarian out to get their health assessed, and to assure they were getting the proper care. The officer told the owner he’d be back to check on them and wanted the veterinarian’s report. When the officer returned on Jan 17th to check their progress, the owner had disappeared, abandoning the horses on the property. An impound notice was left and the Humane Officer brought them in. To date, the owner has made no attempt to contact the shelter to check on his horses.

After being examined by the medical staff, it was determined that their teeth were in very bad shape. This may have contributed to their weight loss. The trainer that came down to the shelter to assess the horses stated that there is a possibility that Thumper has a problem with his hips.It could be an age related issue and coupled with the emaciation, he just may not have had the strength to rise.

Both Thumper and Rabbit are good guys, they are clowns together and tend to remind you of the Odd Couple. They are constantly stealing food from one another, compete for attention from staff, bicker back and forth over the fence, but sleep side by side. They are both older guys estimated to be in their 20′s. It’s unknown how long they have been together, but it is obvious that they are best buddies and devoted to each other. Due to this, we are hoping to find an adopter that would be willing to give them both a good home together.

Happy Ending Rabbit and Thumper not only went home together they took Oliver with them also. Oliver came from a different investigation, but he was their neighbor here at the Animal Center. When they were released into the field at their new home they all ran together as if they had all grown up together. With grass belly high they ran with manes blowing in the breeze, happy to be checking out their new home.

Update on the Horses, March 15

Posted on: March 15th, 2012 by CCSPCA

We are extremely grateful to the community for its interest, outpouring of help and support for the horses. We will have regular updates such as this one as we move forward with their care and future.

Currently we need to have a portable x-ray machine brought out to check several of our horses like “Cricket” the palomino, “Angel” the bay horse, and a few others. This could cost several hundreds of dollars.

The x-rays will help determine the correct course of action for their individual needs.

For all of the horses we need much more alfalfa hay.

Please keep checking the blogs as we will post what’s next, what’s needed, who’s up for adoption, and who’s found a home! Again thank you to everyone who has contributed to their care and well being!!
