P.E.T.S. participated in the second annual Tap Into Tehama Microbrew Festival this past Saturday, August 18th, at River Park in Red Bluff.

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all the volunteers who donated their time: Lew Beitz, Kadie Parish, Cathleen Cahill, Sherri Paisley, Sharon Russell, Barbara Denniston and Ronnie Casey!

The theme was "Local Serving Local" and from the crowds we saw, it looked like it was a very successful event.

THANK YOU ALL!!! We couldn't do what we do, without your help and are extremely grateful for your support!!!!


Stormy’s life may have started rough, but things are brightening up considerably for this tiny little baby!  Her bags are packed, the car is loaded and she is now on her way to a wonderful rescue organization in the bay area!

Found in a storm drain, too young to survive on her own, she was brought into the Tehama County Animal Care Center.  Stormy, however, is not like all the other little kitties… even though she likes to play, she can’t run and jump like they do. 

It is believed that Stormy has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed.  Bacterial or viral infections can cause it, but it can also be caused by injury or malnutrition.  The most common symptoms are jerky movements, wobbly uncoordinated walking, and head bobbing.  There is no cure for Cerebella Hyperplasia, it doesn’t get better, BUT it doesn’t get worse.  A kitten will learn to compensate for his/her condition and can have a normal lifespan. 

Knowing that this little munchkin is off to have a wonderful life, we wish her bon voyage !!!

For “Senior Make A Difference Day” we would like to thank the following seniors from Red Bluff High School for the fantastic work they did this past Monday and Tuesday!  They truly made a difference, not only with regard to their beautification efforts at the Tehama County Animal Care Center, but also in the lives of the many cats 
and dogs resided within its walls.  

They planted shrubs along the outside of the Center.  

The grounds, received an extra special touch with the weeding and raking. 

 In addition, a number of dogs (as well as the kitties) were bathed and groomed.

 Plus, most of the animals received that extra special attention in the form of hugs, walks and petting that they absolutely love!

These seniors made a difference… and you deserve a BIG THANK YOU SHOUT from all of us at the Tehama County Animal Care Center and P.E.T.S.

Red Bluff High School Seniors:
Alisa Milroy
Brittany Swenson
Dylan Lee Dorman
Giovanni Reyes
Haley Summers
Kadin Oaktree
Kaitlyn Dorman
Kris Monroe
Kristen White
Lacee Lowry
Sabrina Ramirez
Sean White
Shalane Crews

And a special Thank you goes to Clarissa Ortner of P.E.T.S. for donating the shrubs that were planted. We couldn’t have done it without you!

!!!! THE TIME IS NOW !!!!

Now is the time, to lend that hand… to be a savior!

The Tehama Animal Care Center has more animals than space!  They are beyond capacity and they desperately need your help …You can see all the strays that have been coming in and every day more arrive !  You can see ALL the new available animals…

Maybe you could ADOPT, or refer someone to the shelter who wants to ADOPT.
If you can’t,
Maybe you can RESCUE. Is there a rescue organization that can take at least one more animal?
If you can’t,
Maybe you can NETWORK, because SHARING SAVES LIVES!!!

Have you lost a pet?  Check the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff (530-527-3439)

Dodger, an adorable five year old Miniature Pinscher,  could really use the help of some tooth fairy coin.  He desperately needs to have about 10 teeth removed and it will cost about $650.00.  Unfortunately, he simply does not have that many coins.
Even with his mouth hurting as much as it does, he remains a happy go-lucky little tyke, who just adores being able to cuddle in a comfortable lap.  His biggest wish is to be able to gnaw on a bone, just like the big guys do!  He asked us to see if there were any tooth fairies around that would be kind enough to leave some coins under his pillow before the teeth are there.  Can you be one of those fairies???
P.E.T.S. (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter)) is a 501(c)(3) all-volunteer non-profit organization in Red Bluff, CA  dedicated to promoting the adoption and rescue of abandoned, abused, homeless, and neglected animals.  All donations are tax deductible.  If you cannot donate, please share and network this page! 
You can donate directly to the fundraiser via PayPal, or you can mail your donation to

Please let us know that the donation is for Dodger. Any funds raised above our goal will be put towards either Dodger’s follow-up care, or other medical needs for other homeless animals at the Tehama County Animal Care Center.
In addition, if you are interested in Dodger or any other animal, please contact the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 530-527-3439 or visit them at 1830 Walnut St. Red Bluff, CA.

Thank you!  P.E.T.S. and all the animals you continue to help are very thankful for every one of you.  Without your generous assistance, many of these wonderful animals would not have a greater chance for a happy life.
