Sara Wagnon sent us this wonderful note:

“Thank you! My family and I are so grateful for you and the way you treated our Ziggy Piggy! He hasn’t had much interaction with other dogs so I was worried he wouldn’t behave, but he did great and the staff was so so welcoming! He’s passed out on his new blankie and loves his new chew toys!”

Wow! Our first Pet Wellness Clinic cohosted with San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Animal Services in SLO City was incredibly busy from start to finish. We helped 175 pets with critical services, such as $5 rabies vaccines and low-cost spays/neuters and medical careAnimal Services sponsored FREE microchips for more than 100 dogs and cats! Our friends at Woods Humane Society and Central Coast Partnership for Animal Welfare gifted pet supplies to families in need and helped co-promote the event. Fantastic job, everyone!

Sequoia’s Beautiful Journey

Sequoia’s Beautiful Journey

Sequoia was a very special cat who had an incredible bond with his mom, Nancy Shobe. The two met 13 years ago when Sequoia was a tiny stray kitten—up north in the Sequoias—and the way the story unfolded, it was destiny for Nancy to rescue this kitty and bring him home to Santa Barbara. Sadly, Sequoia recently got cancer and Nancy had to make the tough decision to put him down. We booked an appointment for Nancy in C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic with our Pet Wellness Services Director, Carlos Abitia.

“I watched Carlos with all of the people who were waiting with their animals. With each person, he was compassionate, caring and full of information.” Nancy adds, “Sequoia was loved and well cared for during his final moments. I felt loved and well cared for. It was a moment of true compassion. I could not have been more pleased.”
