I felt a bit sad taking Izzy away from Hannah (who had been fostering her), but everything worked out perfectly and Izzy is happy with her new brother (3 days older) and I wish I had a car so I could put a sticker on it that said "My Favourite Breed Is Rescued" ... except I really think putting stickers expressing your opinions on one of the most expensive things you own is kinda tacky and ewww. My favourite breed IS "rescued" though, make no mistake. --["Users/AlexPearson"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2012-07-24 18:28:26MeggoWaffleComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 115: </td> <td> Line 115: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-07-24 19:28:26'' [[nbsp]] We adopted a cat from the SPCA a couple months ago. The volunteers were really helpful- they took a lot of time to discuss with us who would do best in our household (had to be OK being an only cat since the landlord only approved one, gentle with our rabbits, etc.). I am pretty sure we picked the best cat ever. Even though she was only 12 weeks old when she came home with us, she was obviously socialized well by her foster mom. She uses her scratching post, has never gone outside the litter box, sits still for nail clipping and teeth brushing, and is playful and affectionate. We couldn't be happier!<br> + <br> + Also, the adoption cost is really reasonable if you consider that it includes the spay/neuter surgery, disease testing, and first round of vaccines. Helpful hint: Some vet offices give a free exam within two weeks of adoption. --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2012-01-27 12:19:25ClairLeeComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 113: </td> <td> Line 113: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-01-27 12:19:25'' [[nbsp]] Unfortunately, I have to agree with some of the negative comments. We submitted an application and never heard back. I emailed several times and finally had a response saying the application would be sent to the adoption committee. Three other rescue organizations got back to me within two days of submitting my application. We had a sweet rescue dog before anyone at the SPCA even got back to me. I'm just worried that the SPCA is missing out on saving more dogs because they are slow and too picky. I've heard the same issues with so many people (volunteers included), even how they put foster owners who want to adopt the dog through a rough process to finalize the adoption. Oftentimes, when someone tries to provide constructive criticism, the SPCA folks are defensive rather than asking how the processes can be improved and how more animals can be saved. I'm going to post something on the SPCA thrift store page next, because that place has some of the most rude people I've come across in Davis. Of course, if I say something, it will be met with defensiveness, with the rude employees and volunteers telling me to volunteer to make it better. BUT part of my contributions to the SPCA are my donations to the thrift store and the many purchases I make there. Some of us don't have the time to volunteer, but we contribute in other ways, and the thrift store would not be there without the donations and the customers. --["Users/ClairLee"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2011-08-15 10:14:37SharonEM <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 7: </td> <td> Line 7: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ||(530)<span>3</span>04<span>-2041</span>|| </td> <td> <span>+</span> ||(530)<span>9</span>0<span>2-626</span>4|| </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2011-07-05 05:51:43TomGarberson-hr <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 110: </td> <td> Line 110: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 113: </td> <td> Line 112: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ------<br> - ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2011-07-04 22:22:26MStrickComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 114: </td> <td> Line 114: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-07-04 23:22:26'' [[nbsp]] I adopted a dog from Yolo SPCA in front of Petco in 2000. They asked me a million questions and seemed to feel they were taking a chance on me as an apartment dwelling fresh graduate of UCD. My dog has been exceptionally healthy for the almost 11 years that I have had him now (making him around 13). I definitely recommend getting a rescue dog from SPCA. I also recommend that people do their homework about breeds before adopting as it's definitely a long term commitment. Don't be put off by mutts/mixed breed dogs either, hybrid vigor may save you a lot on vet bills. --["Users/MStrick"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2011-02-25 09:04:34kimcatacutan <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 114: </td> <td> Line 114: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2011-02-25 02:44:04'' [[nbsp]] I'm very sorry to say that the Yolo County SPCA was highly unresponsive when we were looking for a dog to adopt.

Many animals are simply abandoned. Most of the abandonments that happen in Davis are by students who don't fully understand the commitment required for a pet, and when their next apartment won't allow pets or asks too high a deposit they either leave them behind or 'let them go,' which you really can't do with domestic animals. What they really want is to make sure the animals go to a stable home that will be able to care for them until either the caregiver or the pet dies naturally and if that's not something you are willing to sacrifice the time to fill out the paperwork, then it's probably a good thing you left. --["users/masonmurray" MM]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2010-10-01 21:42:08MasonMurrayComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 109: </td> <td> Line 109: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-10-01 22:42:08'' [[nbsp]] Recently, a rather large dog became a rather large part of my life.

However, through the assistance of the SPCA and the SAAC (Sacramento Area Animal Coalition) I was able to get financial aid for Ronin to be neutered, and I was also able to get his vaccinations (I do not have the paperwork on them so they need to be redone) at a greatly reduced price.

Many if not most of the cats returned are from students and roommate issues. Additionally, every June many cats are left at Davis apartment complexes when the students move out and abandon their cats. We love the cats too! We want to get them homes, but it's important that they are good, committed homes. The shelter takes in many many more cats than it can adopt out. We can't save them all, but we can do our best to make sure ours don't end up there (or worse). If people think a four page application is too long for a 15 to 20 year commitment, maybe it's not the right time for a cat. We realize that cats are a dime a dozen (unfortunately). However, if people put more time and thought into adopting them, maybe they wouldn't be. If students want a cat, maybe they should consider fostering! You don't have the long term commitment, don't have to worry about pet-friendly housing when you leave Davis, and you help save lives. --["Users/susanmaster"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2009-10-04 18:18:18JasonAller <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 17: </td> <td> Line 17: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> '''The Yolo County SPCA is in need of foster homes for puppies, kittens, and <span>rabbits</span>!

I submitted an application to adopt and was contacted within a day or two by Shellie. She has been professional and timely. I don't know what most complaining folks are whining about! For the most part, these animals are "rescue" animals from the Yolo County Animal Shelter. If they aren't kept in a cage they would otherwise be exterminated. I would say that the volunteers for the Yolo County SPCA work very hard to ensure that the animals are happy and well adjusted. These animals are kept in a private foster home and this allows for the animal to acclimate into a caring environment with little kids or other animals...hence, a good test to find out if the animal would be right for your home. NOTE: There is a two week "trial period" after an animal is adopted. If, for any reason at all, the animal must be returned to us during the first two weeks after the adoption, we will either fully refund the adoption fee, or help to place the family with another animal in our system. I would say that this a very generous proposal. 2 weeks is more than enough time to figure out if the animal can acclimate to the new environment and the animal shelter won't let anyone do this. And if they don't refund the adoption fee, I'm sure they would work with you to find another animal that works better for you. Otherwise, just consider it as "alms" to the poor.<br> + --["Users/Tricia.Shortridge"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Yolo County SPCAhttp://daviswiki.org/Yolo_County_SPCA2008-11-16 20:26:54ChrissapherComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Yolo County SPCA<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 79: </td> <td> Line 79: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-11-16 20:26:54'' [[nbsp]] while the intentions of the aspca and the donations made by it may be completely commendable and beneficiary to the community, the way they help people adopt animals is un acceptable.

It took me a week to get him, but that was because of my own scheduling issues and had nothing to do with the SPCA at all.

Fill out and application and email, be persistent- it is the same as everything in life.
