These wonderful dogs are now in new forever homes!  P.E.T.S. and The Tehama County Animal Care Center would like to say a huge “THANK YOU”  to their Adopters, who opened up their hearts during our “There’s No Place Like Home” Adoption event and brought these wonderful animals home with them.  We all wish you many years of happiness!

Lucky Lady – 5/16
Roscoe – 6/23
Rusty – 7/2
Powder – 7/11
Iris – 7/21
Coco – 8/10
Bitsy – 8/15
Captain – 8/20
Grant – 8/25

In addition, a large Thank you also goes to the staff and volunteers.  Without their hard work and dedication, this success would not have been possible.

There are four (4) dogs, who were not adopted during this event and they are still waiting patiently for their homes too!   Therefore, if these very special furry fidos get adopted, P.E.T.S. will still pay the spay/neuter and rabies charges, so the ADOPTION fee will be low!  Also, P.E.T.S. will also provide a bag of Dog food and a Toy to start them on their own journey to their new forever home.

"Me!..  Pick me!...  Me!..."

BIG SIGH...  Everyone just keeps walking by.

My name is REED, and for some reason, day after day nobody picks me!   Can’t understand it.  I practice my cuteness in front of the mirror every single day.  Okay, sure I get it, I’m no puppy, but I’m 7 years young, not too large (I’m a svelte 26 pounds) and am practicing my uppity ups for treats (and, if I say so myself, getting pretty good at it!)   I have a pretty good video too:  Bottom line,  you've really gotta admit it, I'm easy on the eyes.   

So, here’s the deal,  I’m at the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA. (530-527-3439), and during this week’s “There’s No Place Like Home” #Adoption event I even come with a bag of dog food and a toy!   So, how about you share me everywhere, so someone looking for an absolutely handsomely cute dog and forever friend will be able to fall in love with me?  Or, better still, come in and instead of walking by, you could just Adopt me !!!!!!!

Your very smart, handsome forever friend, REED



One day I was just walking along and the Ear Fairy came by and said, "One day you will be up for adoption, and if I grant you the cutest ears in the world, you'll be snatched right up!"  So I said yes, and now I’m just waiting to get adopted!

I'm GRANT, and if you want to find a handsome devil with fabulous ears, you can find me at the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, (530-527-3439).  I am good, nice and quite the curious tyke.   I'm as comfortable sitting in your lap,  as I am zipping around a yard!  Which you can check out in this short video :

I mean, in case the ears weren't enough to convince you to “snatch me up” then here’s the deal -  If you #ADOPT me between September 22nd and 27th, P.E.T.S. is paying for my neuter and rabies vaccination, plus they will send me off with a bag of dog food and a toy too. 

So, how could you not snatch me up?

Still waiting, GRANT (the one with the cutest ears)

SPECIAL ADOPTION EVENT _ September 22 thru September 27


“Toto didn’t really care whether he was in Kansas or the Land of Oz so long as Dorothy was with him, and it’s the same for us.  We’ve been too long without a person and home to call our own.  Don’t get us wrong, we’re very grateful to the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA  (530-527-3439) for caring for us for all these months,  but we really long for a person, just like Dorothy, who’ll love and worry about us forever and ever. 

We have been waiting so long for our very own person.  When we heard that P.E.T.S. launched the “There’s No Place Like Home” #Adoption event, starting September 22nd thru Saturday, September 27th to help us find our very own home, we barked and jumped for joy!  It’s not as if we don’t appreciate the special attention we’ve been getting here, because we do.  Life has been so much better since we came to the Center.

We’ve had our shots, are in pretty good health, and a number of us can get along nicely with other dogs (and yes, even cats) because we have been living in the doggie dorms and had to learn how to share.   And the best part is when our new owner comes to get us they don’t have to worry about paying the spay or neutering fee (P.E.T.S. is covering it).  Plus, when we pack our basket to go, there’ll be some dog food and a toy in it.  What more could anyone want!

So, like Toto we don’t care if we go to Kansas or Oz, we just want to be with our own special person… then the dreams that we dare to dream really will come true!”



Hi, I’m PENNY and treats are the bestest !!!  When I came into the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 1830 Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA, (530-527-3439) with my Mom, the nice people here gave me a treat and I found out that I just LOVE them! I really, really do!!!!!!

Just so you know,  I’ll pay extra special attention when you teach me my manners if you give me a treat!  I’m already learning how to sit nice and how to walk on a leash cause you know why…I get TREATS if I’m good doing things!!!

If you #ADOPT me 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 will send me off with a bag of dog food and a toy too.  What that means is you’ll have extra money to buy me treats…YIPEE !!!

I hope you'll Adopt me, or at least share my picture (kinda tells you all about me), because I really want to go to a home (especially since my Mom already got one).

From your fondest treat fan, PENNY

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 !!!
