Bracing for kitten season, it’s not too late to nip and tuck!

Bracing for kitten season, it’s not too late to nip and tuck!

Sacramento, CA: The Sacramento City Front Street shelter is bracing for the annual onslaught of tiny, homeless kittens. Each year, thousands of unwanted cats and kittens come through the doors of the shelter, brought in often by good intentioned people that have no idea what to do when either their pet gives birth or they stumble across a litter of newborns.

As we prepare for the increased demand for shelter services, we would like to remind cat owners that there are many resources available to prevent those unexpected pregnancies before they happen.  Spaying and neutering is one of the key ways to lessen the number of unwanted animals born each year and ultimately reduce the number of animals that end up in our shelters.  

The City of Sacramento offers city residents very low cost or no cost services that help people with income constraints get their pets spayed or neutered.

Breeds blacklisted from Farmer's home insurance coverage

SACRAMENTO, CA - Farmers Insurance says it will no longer cover pit bulls, rottweilers, and certain wolf hybrids under your homeowner's insurance.

"These three breeds account for 25 percent of all dog bite claims and cause more harm when they attack than any other breed," says Erin Freeman, Chief Communications Officer at Farmers.

But animal rescue groups say this unfairly condemns certain breeds and insurance companies should consider coverage on a case-by-case basis.

"You look at the individual dog just like people you can't make judgements about someone just based on an appearance," says Dawn Capp with Chako Pit Bull Rescue.

Farmers says California homeowners will be notified of the change as their policies come up for renewal.

Pets make wonderful additions to our lives in so many different ways. They keep us entertained, keep us busy and most importantly, remind us that we are needed!


If you’re in the market for a new best friend and are trying to decide what pet is best for you…have you considered a rabbit?


Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you are considering adopting a rabbit:
1. Depending on the age of the rabbit, are you willing to invest up to a 10 year commitment, for the span of his or her life?

2. Rabbits, though small, need a fair amount of space. Do you have an area in your home that the rabbit can move around, get some exercise, and stretch his/her legs?

3. Do you have small children? Some rabbits love kids! But it’s important to remember that they are ground dwellers. They prefer to sit in your lap if they aren’t on the ground, and it’s important to teach children how to properly handle a rabbit.
