It's Kitten Season at Sacramento SPCA!

It's Kitten Season at Sacramento SPCA!

Yes! It is offically "kitten season" once again!  And what better way to enjoy this warmer weather, than to share it with a new furry friend?

Pictured above are three buddies named Kiko (149163), Kenji (149164) and Kato (149165). These three are all two-months-old and were in the same foster home. Their foster family reports that Kiko, the female kitten on the left with torbie coloring, is a busy and curious lap cat. Kenji, the cute black male kitten in the center, is a gentle and sweet cuddler. Kato, the male brown tiger on the right, is kooky, funny and curious.

Kittens often get adopted quickly but this time of year there's always more available.

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.

Pet owners get financial break

Sacramento and Yolo County pet owners can now apply to have their pets spayed or neutered for just $20 per dog and $15 per cat as part of “Spay Day Sacramento” on March 6.  This is a savings of 90 percent or more on this routine, but important veterinary procedure.  Spaying or neutering dogs and cats leads to better health and improved behavior and reduces the number of animals entering area shelters.

Qualifying pet owners must be either Sacramento or Yolo County residents and have an annual household income of $35,000 or less.  There is a 2 animal (dog and/or cat) limit per household.  Proof of income will be required.
