Have you tried on your winter wardrobe and it is too snug or maybe even too big? If so, Consider donating your clothing to the Thrift Shop. We need new and very gently used Spring and Summer clothing as well as purses and shoes. Your closet cleaning could make a difference in the life of a pet. We accept donations Tuesday - Saturday from 10am - 4:30pm. We appreciate your donations and we will provide you a tax deductible receipt.
"Dedicated To Placing Unwanted Dogs In Loving Homes"
Meet Koda. She is such a low-key sweet girl. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, she gets overlooked when people come to adopt a dog. She has been with us for a long time and she needs to desperately find a loving home. She would make a great ranch dog or even a companion dog. She is alert so very watchful of her surroundings. We feel she would do best as an only dog, as some dogs just get on her nerves, just like people. She has spent the night with one of our volunteers and she said that Koda has great house manners and is potty trained. She will show her playful side and does listen well. She is good on a leash and will travel anywhere you want her to go. Please consider this sweet dog.
Do you enjoy posting pictures on social media sites? Do you like to write? If you do, our dogs need you! We are looking for someone to post pictures on our Facebook page and various other animal adoption sites. These pictures and write-ups are essential for getting our furry friends adopted. If you can spare a few hours a week, please speak with Theresa at our Thrift Shop, located at 855 Gray Avenue, in Yuba City. We will work around your schedule and after you become familiar with the system, this could be done from home. You can also call us at 530-755-2025

Medical Care and Medications, which can be quite costly to the Rescue. We frequently use eye medications, ear medications, skin medications, intestinal medications and also we provide x-rays when needed and any emergency or any other needed medical attention when necessary. The cost to provide care for just one dog can be anywhere between $150.00-$500.00, and depending upon the particular situation, possibly more. This of course does not include costs involved in maintaining the rescue, maintenance and other day to day operational costs. Please remember, we do not receive Federal or State Funding. The adoption fees we charge allow us to to continue to care for these animals.
A common question among adopters is why do we have adoption fees? Shouldn't the dogs be free or at least discounted because they are rescue dogs? When you adopt a dog from our Shelter, your fees are helping with the continious costs involved in the care of the dog. These costs typically include, but are not limited to:

HOLIDAY TIPS FOR YOUR PET
House Training Dogs & Puppies
"article from petfinder site"
The key to training your dog to eliminate outside (where you want him to) is to prevent accidents, and to reward success. Adult dogs have better bladder and bowel control, and can “hold it” for a longer period of time than puppies. The rule of thumb with puppies is to take their age in months, add one, and that’s the number of hours the puppy can “hold it” during the day (i.e. A four-month-old puppy can be expected to be clean for up to five hours during the day).
Here are some simple steps to help you and your dog find success!
Feed your dog on a schedule (he’ll eliminate on a schedule, too).
Keep his diet simple and consistent (avoid table scraps and canned foods; a high quality dry kibble produces the least waste).
Choose an area, about ten square feet, outside, where you wish your dog to potty.
Take your dog on leash to the area, pace back and forth (movement promotes movement) and chant an encouraging phrase (“do your business, do your business “).
Do this for no more than three minutes:
if he eliminates, give huge amounts of praise and play.
if he doesn’t eliminate, keep him on leash, go back indoors, keep dog on leash with you or confined in a crate.
Try again in an hour; eventually your dog will eliminate appropriately and you can
give huge amounts of praise and play.
REMEMBER! Do not punish accidents! Ignore them, and reward success!
Don't let your pet drink the water in the Christmas Tree holder, as it harbors bacteria and can make your pet sick
Tinsel on trees are attractive to pets and if ingested can cause serious gastrointestinal problems, even blockage.
Don't leave candles in low areas, pets can knock them over and burn themselves, or even cause a house fire.
Keep wires and ornaments out of your pets reach, (if possible, don't put them on the bottom branches); your pet could suffer electrocution or ingest an ornament.
Keep your pets away from sweet treats, especially chocolate. Xylitol is an artificial sweetener which can be dangerous for your pet.
Spicy, fatty foods or foods with bones should NEVER be given to your pet. Make sure garbage is completely out of pets reach.
Make sure to keep cocktails out of your pets reach, as they can cause serious illness to your pet, including death.
If you plan to give your pet a Christmas Treat, make sure that you buy durable dog toys that are indestructible. No ribbons or loose parts that your pet can ingest.
Remember to tell your guests to keep their medications in a safe place, zipped up, where Rover can't get to them.
Make sure your pet has a quiet, secure place to go. Some pets get very nervous at holidays, with people coming and going and it can cause stress in your pet.
As you count down to the new year, remember confetti and poppers can be very dangerous if swallowed. Loud noises, fireworks and horns can terrify pets and also cause hearing problems.
Train your furry friend to stay back from the fireplace. Embers can pop out and injure your pet and even the fireplace screen can reach temperatures that can burn your pet if they rub against it.
