Yolo County Animal Services is celebrating the month of February with pet adoptions starting at $14. The shelter, at 2540 E. Gibson Road in Woodland, has many dogs and cats eager to find a loving home.
Can’t adopt right now? Consider sponsoring one of the adorable animals with a donation. Better yet donate in the name of your pet or remember a loved one on Valentine’s Day with a donation in their name — much more meaningful than chocolates or roses.
Off-site adoptions are also available at Pet Extreme in Woodland from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday. All animals are already spayed/neutered, microchipped, heath-tested and ready to go home that same day.
This also is the time of the year that members of the public ask what they can do to support animals at the shelter. Items needed to help the shelter provide for dogs and cats awaiting their forever home include bath-size towels, (new or gently used), fleece blankets (lap size), flea control (Advantage or Frontline, any size) Natural Balance dog food rolls (lamb or beef rolls — used for training programs), Thunder shirts (any size — help frightened animals), Kong toys (medium and large), jolly balls, ping-pong balls, furry mice toys or plastic balls with beds, “donut” beds for cats and Kuranda dog/cat beds (available at http://kuranda.com/donate).
The shelter also appreciates gift cards for Costco, OSH, Home Depot, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Pet Extreme and Pet Factory.
