Sacramento animal shelters join national initiative to find homes for thousands of animals

Sacramento animal shelters join national initiative to find homes for thousands of animals

Local community challenged to #EmptySacShelters over the course of one weekend

Sacramento, CA (October 14, 2013)—Later this week, shelters from around the country will collaboratively attempt to place thousands of homeless animals into new homes over the course of just one weekend for the ASPCA’s Mega Match-a-thon initiative.

Four local animal shelters have joined the initiative and are calling on the Sacramento community to #EmptySacShelters from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, October 18 to Sunday, October 20.

The local effort, aptly named the Empty Our Shelters Project, will provide individuals and families the opportunity to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for animals found in shelters. That weekend, participating local animal shelters will allow Sacramentans to adopt any animal from any shelter for just $20!

Participating shelters include:

SacramenTENs Supports the Zoo

Support the Sacramento Zoo when you purchase season passes to the King's 2013/2014 basketball season.  The Sacramento Kings have launched “SacramenTENs Assist” – a major community giving campaign in which ten percent of all season tickets sold during this ten week campaign will be donated to ten local charities. The campaign began on August 5th and will run for ten weeks, ending October 10th.

BloodSource Assists Patients and Pets this Summer

BloodSource is helping patients - and animal shelter pets - this summer by matching the number of blood drive participants with bags of food to be donated to Titanic’s Pantry, also known as the Sacramento Pet Food Bank*. Many of our blood donors have a soft spot in their hearts for abandoned pets and this is a novel way to help. Blood donors should refer to Donor Club #2127 when they donate blood at any BloodSource Donor Center or mobile blood drive from July 29 to August 4, 2013. Western Feed & Pet Supply has partnered to provide the bags of pet food at a discount.

The Midtown BloodSource Donor Center at 1608 Q. Street has partnered specifically with City of Sacramento Front Street Animal Services and Western Feed & Pet Supply to host a Bow-Meow Blood Drive on Tuesday, July 30, from 9:00 a.m.

Front Street Shelter Adoption Events

Front Street Shelter Adoption Events

The Sacramento Front Street Shelter sponsors many adoption events at several pet centers throughout the city.  Recently, at Pet Extreme on Sutterville Road,  Lola Montez, a 7-year-old Teacup Chihuahua, stirred up lots of attention. Lola is currently being fostered off-site, but the shelter is full of precious pooches on site as well, all in need of a loving forever home.
