A Morning at Lake Solano Park

I wasn’t able to take Sergeant Margie with me (waaaah!) because dogs are not allowed, but I took a half-day-trip over to Lake Solano Park today.  The place was easy to find and really quite lovely.  I loved being able to hear cows moo along with the sounds of geese as I walked through the park, and was astonished to see a bevy of peacocks walking and strutting through the place.   CLICK HERE to read my write-up on the place and to see more photos.

Walking in the Doggie Dash for the Sacramento SPCA June 8th

Hey Everyone,  on June 8th, 2013, Sergeant Margie and I are taking part in the 20th anniversary Doggy Dash, a 2k that supports the Sacramento SPCA. The Doggy Dash is more than a fun walk and pet festival. It is an event that raises much-needed funds to help the SPCA feed, house, vaccinate, spay/neuter, and care for the more than 11,000 homeless animals each year. 

There are many organizations doing wonderful things, but I passionately believe in the Sacramento SPCA. This organization is more than a great place to adopt a new companion, it provides a wide variety of services to our community – from programs designed to assist seniors and educate children, to obedience training, a free behavior helpline, an award-winning volunteer program, and the region’s only high-volume spay/neuter clinic. Can you imagine what a task that must be?

I know for many it is hard to consider making a donation at this time, but please know that each dollar adds up, and any amount you donate is welcome and appreciated.

Don’t forget that EVERY DOLLAR YOU DONATE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Did you know that…

$25.00 will cover the board and care for one animal in the shelter for one day.
$50.00 will microchip 10 dogs or cats.
$150.00 will cover the cost of inoculations, spay or neuter surgery and microchip for one adoption animal.

ON JUNE 8TH 5,000 WILL WALK AS ONE TO CHANGE THE LIVES OF ANIMALS IN SACRAMENTO.

I wholeheartedly believe that the Sacramento SPCA makes a difference in our community. That is why I am asking for your support. It would mean a great deal to me, and you can be assured that your donation will be well-spent, making our community a better place for homeless pets and people too!

Thank you so much!
Mare and Sergeant Margie
