Roxy

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Ten-year-old Roxy was surrendered to the Sacramento SPCA simply for being “too old.” Life in the shelter was too stressful for her, so she was placed in a foster home where her doting foster mom noticed she had a cough. Chest x-rays revealed a terminal heart condition. With the help of a Grey Muzzle grant, Roxy’s condition is being managed and her quality of life maintained.

Shorty

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

Super senior, Shorty, an 18-year-old miniature schnauzer, was surrendered to Sacramento SPCA because his previous owner said he was “too old and sickly." Shorty was matched with a foster and, feeling better, his true personality came out! This “too old” super senior still had plenty of spunk and love to give.

Dolly Smiling

Dolly

How we helped

Dental Expense Grant

No one knew how Dolly's story began. When a Good Samaritan brought her to animal control, she was dirty, matted, covered in sores, and had a mouth full of loose and rotting teeth. Uncomfortable doesn't even begin to describe the way this senior pup felt.
