One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

 One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

The Bradshaw Animal Shelter again teams up for the Empty Our Shelters Project, October 17-19. For this one weekend, pet adoptions are just $20. A goal of adopting 500 animals to loving homes has been challenged for this intensive effort by Sacramento County, Yolo County, Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

Last year, our area shelters found 526 animals permanent homes in three days and were nationally recognized by the ASPCA. The County’s Bradshaw Animal Shelter stood out with the most adoptions – 179! With unending desire to help animals and a good dose of competitive spirit, the Bradshaw Shelter hopes the community will once again come together to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for shelter animals.

PetSmart CEO, Mayor Johnson & Front Street Shelter Celebrate Opening of Pop-Up Park in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO – PetSmart, Inc. has partnered with the City of Sacramento to bring a portable, pop-up park to Sacramento. This portable dog park provides more than 9,000 square feet of space for pet parents to bring their dogs to play. PetSmart’s P.U.P. is a shipping container that contains everything that can be deployed to create an interim dog park, including 340 feet of fencing, three waste clean-up stations, three moveable benches, lighting on and inside the container.

 

While the park has been open to the community since August, a community celebration and official ribbon cutting will take place on Saturday, September 27. Speakers will include Kevin Johnson, Mayor of Sacramento and David Lenhardt, President and CEO of PetSmart.

On January 30th, the Sacramento Zoo broke ground on the Small Wonders of Africa exhibit. Since then, we have been working hard to transform the area. As the summer draws to a close, we are happy to report that the new exhibit will open Labor Day weekend!

Small Wonders will house six new African species: African Straw-colored Fruit Bats, Aardvark, Wolf's Guenons, Red-billed Hornbills and Crested Guineafowl. Later this year, Banded Mongooses will join the Aardvark on exhibit.
