★★ WANTED - MORE #FOSTERS ★★





Not yet an foster? Come join our team and find out about fostering. Fostering is a wonderfully rewarding experience and whether you only foster once or decide to continue fostering again and again you will know that you personally helped to save a life!

Many wonderful animals can benefit from foster care. Here are the most common reasons animals need a foster home:
• Orphaned kittens and puppies that are too young to be adopted, some may need to be bottle-fed.
• Under-aged, self-feeding kittens and puppies (4-8 weeks old)
• Mother cat or dog with nursing kittens or puppies
• Animals recovering from injury or illness (may need medication)
• A dog or cat that needs socialization and tender loving care.
• The pet might need additional medical treatment (like heartworm treatment)

We take great care to match the animal to you and your situation. Some animals may need fostering for only a few days while others may need to be in your home for much longer. Again, we work with you to ensure that you are comfortable with the animal, its needs and the expected timeline for fostering. (All fosters must fill out an application and interview before taking home their first foster dog or cat.)

PLEASE come join our team and learn more about this wonderful, life-saving program! With additional foster parents, many more animals can be adopted, and ultimately find their forever homes. 
Either contact us at 530-527-8702  (petstehama@gmail.com) or the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 530-527-3439, 1830 Walnut St., Red Bluff, CA 96080

This upcoming weekend P.E.T.S will have a Float in the Red Bluff Round-Up Parade to help us “Get the Word Out Rodeo Style”!

Everyone needs to be at the Parade site Saturday, April 19th by 8:00 am for judging … The parade starts promptly at 10, but is over before you can say “Well, HOWDY”.

The theme is "Rodeo Ready" so, we ask that you wear blue or white shirts and jeans, along with any other cowboy/cowgirl type gear you think would be great (hats, boots, etc.)… AND don’t forget to dress up your pet too !!

♡ ♡ PUPPY LOVE ♡ ♡


Poor Puppy has a mass on her leg and on her ear that need to be removed immediately.  She came to us as a stray in mid-February but, we cannot find her owner.  We know she had one once, because she has a microchip and is spayed.  We think that the owner just didn’t want to deal with her medical problems.   Even  though she has these masses and was abandoned, she never lets  you know it.  Puppy may be 6 years old, but she has all lovable qualities we adore in puppies.  The unfailing adoration, kisses, wiggles and tail wags and pure delight in everything.  We cannot fail Puppy, like her owner did and we cannot wait any longer, trying to keep her leg and ear  dry and clean in the shelter is just too hard to do.    So, she is going to the Vet  to have the surgery done now, but we need help!  It is going to cost $320.00.  Anything you can donate would definitely help us help Puppy!!


In addition, if you are interested in fostering or adopting her, please contact the Tehama County Animal Care Center at 530-527-3439 or visit her 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.

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. 

You can donate directly to the fundraiser via PayPal, or you can mail your donation to
P.E.T.S.
P.O. Box 1174
Red Bluff, CA 96080

Please let us know that the donation is for Puppy.  Any funds raised above our goal will be put towards Puppy' follow-up care, as well as other medical needs for the homeless animals of the Tehama County Animal Care Center.

★WORLD SPAY DAY - A REFERENCE ★


As an aid, in recognition of World Spay Day today, we have created the following reference for those who are interested in spaying/neutering dogs and/or cats.

World Spay Day is an annual campaign created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1994 to bring attention to the pet overpopulation problem in the USA, and to encourage animal population control by neutering/spaying pets. It shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs. Spay Day USA has helped in decreasing the population of street dogs and cats throughout the US, which is very helpful as it decreases the number of unwanted animals.
