Rhonda Sullivan, in Sacramento, sent in this photo of her beloved dogs "Lexie" and "Binky" (the pug). Sullivan said Binky really thinks she's actually a Rottweiler!

"Binky curls up in the corner of the chair and Lexie will lay on top of her like a blanket to keep her sister warm," said Sullivan.

Animal House Pet of the Week - February 15, 2011

The Sacramento & Co. Animal House introduces "Honey"

Honey (ID#A361270), is a 2-year-old female, red "All American Mutt."  Honey has a bit of Beagle in her, but does not display the typical "Beagle barkiness."  She gets along with dogs of all sizes and is very people friendly.  Honey weighs about 15 to 20 lbs. and has the most luxuriously soft red fur.  Since she is currently in a foster home, the shelter will have to schedule Honey for a "meet and greet" with potential adopters.  Honey will be eagerly waiting for your call to meet her!        

Honey has not yet been spayed, but will be prior to going home to her new family.

Animal House Pet of the Week - February 8, 2011

The Sacramento & Co. Animal House introduces "Wisdom"

Wisdom is a 4-year-old male, orange tabby domestic long hair kitty.  This is one mellow fellow!  Wisdom is gentle, friendly and very affectionate. He likes to be carried, enjoys being brushed and loves getting pets.  Wisdom is the quintessential lap cat.  He has been introduced to other kitties and doesn't seem to be bothered by them.  If you are looking for a kitty who will kick back and keep you company while reading or watching TV, Wisdom is the one for you.     

Wisdom has already been neutered, so he can go home the same day he is adopted.
