Found: Best Doggie Daycares in Sacramento

Found: Best Doggie Daycares in Sacramento

By Laura Braden

Leaving your pets with strangers – heck, just leaving your pets in general – can be stressful. You want them to have fun, but you also want to feel confident that you’ve left them in responsible hands.

With the holidays just around the corner, I figured it was time to give the rundown on four great boarding/doggie daycare options. Whether traveling for work, the holidays or for pleasure, I’ve used all four before and can attest to their professionalism and genuine dedication to the well-being of our four-legged children.

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:
