La Riviera dog owner offers $1,000 reward for missing pooch

SACRAMENTO – The owner of an escaped 4-year-old pure-bred Brittany Spaniel offered a $1,000 reward for the pup’s return on Tuesday.

Gina Knepp of  Sacramento Animal Control said Rusty the Brittany Spaniel escaped from his rear yard onto the American River levy on November 24.  The other dog that escaped with Rusty was found, but Rusty remains missing. 

According to Knepp, the owner has posted over 100 flyers and rides his bike along the American River trail from Rancho Cordova to Cal Expo daily in search of his dog.

The owner also told Knepp he has investigated all area shelters with no luck.

Rusty was described as mainly white with a big orange patch on his back.  He has red ears and a white forehead and mouth.  He weighs about 43 pounds, has medium length fur and a short tail.

Anyone who has seen Rusty was asked to contact the City of Sacramento Animal Care Services at (916) 808-8333

Pet of the Week- the lovely Jada!

Pet of the Week- the lovely Jada!

Help us find Jada a home!
Jada is a very sweet and calm six-and-a-half-year old American Staffordshire terrier mix. She is one of our long-time residents here at the Sacramento SPCA and we’re determined to find her a home this holiday season! She is great with people and will do well with older children and friendly dogs, however, NO CATS please! *Additional bonus!* Her age makes her eligible for our Seniors for Seniors Adoption promo. Any senior over the age of sixty can have the adoption fees waived!

** Also join us on December 7th, (the first Wednesday of every month) for our Senior Vaccine Clinic
FREE vaccines for seniors over the age of 60 who bring in their pets! This will be held in the ADOPTIONS building between the hours of 10:00AM- 12:00PM.

Pet of the Week - Mr. Smokey!

Pet of the Week - Mr. Smokey!

This eight-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix is both sweet and friendly. He is fairly typical of his breed in that he is very smart, confident and independent, but he’s also a big lover! Positive reinforcement training would help him focus his energy and learn even more commands than he already knows. Mr. Smokey would do best in a somewhat active home with experienced adult owners (older kids and NO cats!). He is eligible for our Senior for Senior Program in which adoption fees are waived for adopters who are at least sixty-years-old and adopting animals over the age of five.

*Join us on Black Friday and during the weekend for some very special adoption deals! All black (and mostly black) animals are 50% off through the weekend at the Sacramento SPCA!

** Please note we will be closed on Thursday, November 24th for Thanksgiving.
