Feline Adoptions: This Adorable Tuxedo Cat just got adopted - Who's next?

This is Wilson.  An awesome kitty who was born in the News10 parking lot and now has a forever home.

How many great cats are out there, just like Wilson, who need a home? 

More than you can imagine.

These creatures bring so much love and happiness to a home.  Consider how you will be helping them, while you're helping make your life so much richer.

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:

Shelter Animals Benefit from Budget Boost

Shelter Animals Benefit from Budget Boost

The Department of Animal Care and Regulation is in line to receive an additional $152,000 to its 2013/2014 budget. The Board of Supervisors allocated more funds which will help to increase the shelter’s live release rate, allow animal control officers more time in the field, and enhance the rescue and foster care programs.

“The Shelter staff and volunteers have done an extraordinary job weathering the last few years of reductions and it’s time we re-invest in their operation and get them the extra help they need,” said County Executive Bradley J.
