Animal Care Reminds People to Get Their Pets Ready For Summer

Animal Care Reminds People to Get Their Pets Ready For Summer

Warm weather has finally arrived in Sacramento, and the County Animal Shelter is reminding pet owners of the importance of taking certain precautions to make sure their animals stay safe and cool during the hot Sacramento summer months.

“Pets are completely dependent on their owners to take care of them, and it is important that people stay alert to their pet’s health and well being,” said Dave Dickinson, Interim Animal Shelter Director. “One of the more common instances we see of endangering pet’s health is dogs left in cars in hot weather. All it takes is a few minutes for a dog to succumb to heat stroke.”

Below are some tips on how you can help your pet get ready for summer:

  • Never leave your dog in a parked car: Even cracking a window won’t protect your pets.

BloodSource helps fulfill military request for plasma

BloodSource helps fulfill military request for plasma

BloodSource has been asked to provide plasma to help support military blood needs.

Male donors who have Blood Type AB, the universal donor for plasma, are needed. 

Plasma is a blood component that is often critical for survival of injured soldiers on the front lines.  Only men are currently allowed to donate plasma at BloodSource. BloodSource, as part of  a national agreement between the Armed Services Blood Program Office and America's Blood Centers, a network of community blood centers that collects nearly half of the nation's blood supply, is a designated "hub center" for providing blood for military support when it is needed during wartime.

This process for blood shipment in support of military needs was pre-determined several years ago following Desert Storm in Iraq.  The agreement between America's Blood Centers and the U.S. Department of Defense is to assure all blood needs are met.

Man turns self in for 4-year-old Rancho Cordova murder

RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - The Sacramento Sheriff's Department arrested a man for a murder for years ago.

Kirk Jared Rivers, 22, was arrested for the 2007 murder of John Pogacar, 39, after he turned himself in Monday afternoon, Deputy Jason Ramos said.

Pogacar was found stabbed to death in his Rancho Cordova home in the 9400 block of Mira Del Rio Drive on May 30, 2007, around 9:49 a.m., by his father.

When police arrived on scene, Pogacar was inside his home, near the front door, Ramos said.

Rivers walked into the sheriff's department and told deputies that he killed Pogacar. Homicide detectives talked with Rivers and found that there was enough evidence to arrest him.

Rivers was booked into Sacramento County Main Jail for one count of murder and is being held without bail.

Testing out the “best” cellulite cream

Testing out the “best” cellulite cream

After spending an hour on the internet doing research, I’ve ordered what people have reviewed as the “best cellulite cream” – well, the best one I could find for less than $35. I didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on magic lotion that may not work. I’m a little skeptical when it comes to things like that and figure if I’m wishing for miracles, I might as well as wish for my own fairy godmother.

So what is the best cellulite cream on the market?

NFL star Briggs mentors hometown youth

SACRAMENTO, CA - NFL Pro-Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs of the Chicago Bears returned to his hometown to conduct his third annual Nor-Cal All Star Football Camp at American River College, in Sacramento on Saturday.

Briggs, joined by 10 other NFL players, interacted with about 300 football campers - boys and girls ages 9-17 to teach them fundamentals and the importance of hard work.

"Hard work, more than anything else", Briggs said about the overall theme of the camp. "Things don't come easy so you got to work for it and have fun at the same time."

For Briggs, the hard work paid off. 

Briggs, 30, a standout student athlete at Elk Grove High School became a 3-time All-Pac 10 player for the University of Arizona before being a 3rd round draft pick by the Bears in 2003.
