Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Sacramento – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.“We are happy to announce the Sacramento SPCA’s participation in the Bissell Pet Foundation “Empty the Shelters” Free Adoption Event on March 18, 2017.

You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Sacramento pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Sacramento is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Sacramento animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.The City of Sacramento shelter offers a wide range of adoptables including cats, dogs, rabbits and even chickens. All pets in this clean, professional facility receive top-notch health care, nutrition and socialization thanks to the tireless efforts of shelter staff and volunteers. Visit the shelter website to learn more about the organization’s services and check their Petfinder site to see animals that are currently up for adoption.
