Adopt a pet in Sacramento

Residents who have recently purchased one of the homes for sale in Sacramento may want to consider adopting a pet. Cats and dogs offer wonderful companionship, and there are many local services that help you care for your new family member such as dog parks and supply shops.

Consider adopting a pet from one of the local animal shelters if you wish to add another loved one to your family. The City of Sacramento Animal Care Services, located at 2127 Front Street, houses dogs and cats of all ages and breeds. The main office is open Wednesday through Friday from 12 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Adopting a pet is a fairly simple process, and it may be more affordable than finding a reputable breeder and purchasing the animal.

After bringing home a new furry friend, you can go to Pet Food Express to pick the supplies you may need to care for the pet. The store is located at 2531 Fair Oaks Boulevard, and the establishment offers supplies such as food and toys for cats, dogs and other critters.
