Hot summer days are a good excuse to stay in your air-conditioned house and sort out all the stuff you don't need any more and can donate to the S.O.S. "Flea" Market being held on Saturday, June 26 from 9-4 to benefit the Sacramento County Animal Shelter.  Please help keep our new state-of-the-bark shelter open and help care for the 15,000 animals that enter the shelter each year.  Check out their flier on the link provided for more information about the sale.  
Note: donations cannot be dropped at the shelter due to limited space but drop-off and pick-up of items can be arranged.

The Board of Supervisors will make their decision about the fate of the shelter and staff budget cuts on Thursday.  There is still enough time for you to write a letter to your district supervisor to express your views.  I demonstrated with about 50 or so others at the administration building this afternoon.  Supporters from the Humane Society of the United States, United Animal Nations, and Sacramento SPCA were present. We marched around Cesar Chavez Park and through the downtown area to get some attention for the shelter's plight.  Granted, it was a hot day, but considering the population of this city, the number of participants was not nearly as great as it could have been.  However, I hope we made some impact on the decision makers.  It is too easy to target the helpless and voiceless in these hard times, but our voices can make a difference in the lives of thousands of homeless pets.  Please write your comments to your County Supervisor.

    Also if you have an interest or know of anyone who does this is my blog about what I do.

    This is also a small example some services that the officer who are left will not longer be able to provide.
