Hi! I'm BITSY, or as you'll have to agree, the "Cutest Dog Ever"!

I’ve been living with the nice people from the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, (530-527-3439) since mid-August and they want you to know that even though there are LOTS of dogs that look just like me in Northern California, I'm the very best of the best!

I'm around 10 pounds, the perfect size!  And about 2 years old, the perfect age! AND I have a tail that loves to wag with a butt that loves to wiggle, thus, the perfect disposition.  What more could you ask for?  If your still not sure, you can see a nice little video of me here:

And, if you #ADOPT me, I won’t break the bank cause I’m already spayed, and my bags are already packed with some dog food and my toys!

Wiggles and Wags, BITSY



Do you want a reward?  Then this lively, fun loving pooch is the one for you!  I’m known for stealing kisses and the hearts of those who know me!

I like to fly out of my kennel like a speedin’ bullet,  cause I’m eager for exercise and I think life is a HUGE game!  I’m still pretty young (about 10 months), so I can be goofy, but, I love to learn new things like sitting and walking politely on a leash, cause the scuttlebutt is I’m smart and learn super well!  But, did I tell you, I have LOTS of energy and that I love to give kisses … hmmm, maybe I did shoot my mouth off  bout that already.

I’m going to shoot straight from the hip.  Everyone at the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, (530-527-3439) is super, but I’m really ready to settle into a homestead of my own.  If you #ADOPT me between September 22nd and 27th, it won’t cost you a lot of grub, cause P.E.T.S. is paying for my neuter, plus you get the bonus reward of a bag of dog food and a toy.

You’ll hit a bullseye with a straight shooter like me… and that’s no bull!  PISTOL 



I'm POWDER from the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, and I am the star of my own show “Princess Powder Plays”.  It’s  It’s been in production since the beginning of July and it’s all about how fun, cuddly and affectionate I am!  I especially like to dress up and co-star with kids.

If you're considering casting me, you should know I am about 10 months old, have very nice manners, and I’m healthy!

My best scenes are splashing in a kiddie pool, and I also shine with getting pets and giving butt wiggles. I'm great when the spotlight goes out, too, cause I really like to cuddle and nap -- I bet YOU like that, too!

Want to talk to my agent? Just call 530-527-3439 and my people will talk to your people!  If you want to sign an #ADOPTION  deal anytime between September 22nd and 27th, it won’t cost you very much cause P.E.T.S. is paying for my spay and rabies vaccination (plus they are throwing in some additional perks like dog food and a toy).

Oh, and be sure to share me if I’m not the star for you! You never know where that next great production is happening!

Love and Kisses, POWDER



1-2-3 days... Hi! I'm RUSTY at the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA. (530-527-3439), and I was just counting how long it would take me to get adopted... 76-77-78 days... sigh, it’s getting hard to count so many days! I was hoping to be adopted before too many numbers went by, but that hasn’t happened!

Maybe you could do something as simple as 1-2-3 for me!
1. Gaze into my beautiful eyes and admire how handsome I am.
2. Think hard about adopting me!
3. Share me with every buddy you know, if you don’t want me!
How easy is that?

Now, I have some more numbers:
1. I love people!!! and snuggling!!! and belly rubs (they’re the best)!!!
2. I'm healthy and gentle and very affectionate.
3. I specially love belly rubs (oops, I already said that).
4. I have a great video too! ( )

And if you like low numbers, my #ADOPTION fee will make you happy, cause P.E.T.S. is paying for my neuter and they’re giving me a bag of food and a toy to go home with!

So, hurry hurry, I am COUNTING on you cause I don’t want to count any more days! RUSTY



On our first day of "How To Get Adopted 101," the teacher told us, "Learn the “Happy puppy dog expression”.  Humans are defenseless against #dogs doing it."

So I've been practicing and practicing!  How do you think I'm doing?

I'm ROSCOE, and I’ve been studying at the Tehama County Animal Care Center, at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA.  I think of myself as their star pupil because I'm really cheerful and extremely lovable and very smart too  (which is good with housetraining)!

If you'd like to learn more about me, all you have to do is call 530-527-3439  (did I tell you I’m a star pupil!).  I know my #ADOPTION fees are really low cause  P.E.T.S. is paying for my neuter and rabies vaccination!  And, I heard that they’ll send me off with a graduation present of dog food and a toy!

I hope you'll Adopt me, or at least share this awesome message, because I really want to graduate FIDO BETA KAPPA!!!!!!

Studiously yours, ROSCOE



Next week (Monday, September 22nd thru Saturday, September 27th), we are clicking our heels three times and following the yellow brick road to find homes for all the dogs that have been staying at the Tehama County Animal Care Center for a very long time. ( #tehamaadoption )

A tornado did not drop them there from a distant place.  Some came as strays, others were surrendered, through no fault of their own, by their owners, and the rest were rescued from unhealthy situations.  But, no matter how they arrived, they are not in Kansas anymore.

We told them “DON’T WORRY...  There are a lot of good people who are looking for some very special dogs, just like you, to be a part of a wonderful loving family.”  And to prove it, we will be like Glinda, the good witch of the North, and help them find their way to the home they want.

If ANY dog, who arrived BEFORE September 1, 2014 is adopted, P.E.T.S. will pay the spay/neuter and rabies vaccination charges, so their ADOPTION fees will be very low!  In addition, P.E.T.S. will also provide a bag of Dog food and a Toy to start the lucky pooch on his or her happy trip to their new home.

We ask that you join the Tehama County Animal Care Center, at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA (530-527-3439) and us as we travel down the yellow brick road and celebrate how amazing these dogs are.  Read about them over these next weeks as we show case each one’s unique and fantastic qualities.  Come with us as we visit them at the Care Center … they would love to meet you and show you just how great they are.

Are you ready to take a journey to find the absolutely perfect doggy for you?  Then tap your heels three times and repeat with us “There’s no place like Home… There’s no place like Home… There’s no place like Home!”

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
P.O. Box 1174

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.
