Christmas Parade in honor of

Sgt. Stubby


This past week pet food and supplies were delivered to help those affected by the Camp Fire. With HUGE thanks to Walmart Distribution Center, The Tehama County Deputy Sheriffs Association, The Tehama County Probation Dept., Mandy Hamilton, DVM at Valley Veterinary Clinic, P.E.T.S. was able to coordinate a massive donation of supplies to those in need. We are happy to announce that over 4,000 pounds of pet food was included.

With a huge SHOUT OUT to the Walmart Distribution Center whose donations allow us to have resources readily available to help those in need, and to our supporters who through their contributions allows us to function, P.E.T.S. was able to respond quickly.

On Monday, Mandy Hamilton, DVM, after being loaded up with blankets, food, and other necessary supplies, drove down to the Chico Municipal Airport at 150 Airpark Blvd. Chico, where NVADG has set up an emergency shelter for so many animals displaced by this devastating fire.

On Tuesday, within a short period of time and the help of the Tehama County Probation Department, and the equipment and labor supplied, an emergency delivery from Walmart Distribution was facilitated so needed supplies could be sorted and transported to Salco Better Energy (530-210-2374) at 22807 Antelope Blvd., Red Bluff and the Los Molinos VFW Hall (530-384-2759) at 7980 Sherwood Blvd., Los Molinos for those evacuees with pets who have come into Tehama County.

The Camp Fire

DAIRYVILLE Orchard Festival.

PETS was lonely.  NO shelter pets or Deserving Pets folks were available to hold adoption opportunityes.  But the weather was great and many conversations were had with very nice folks.  Thank you to the volunteers who manned the booth all day.

The final 2018 Tailgate giveaway is over.  Pictures provided show the assist given by the Tehama County Probation Dept, The PETS Board members and volunteers and finally the cats shown are off to be spayed or neutered thanks to the Diane McCorkle Endowment Fund for Spay and Neutering of Tehama County Dogs and Cats


Thank you


P.E.T.S. “Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter” wishes to acknowledge Nu-Way Market for helping to earn much needed funds for their cause.  This family run market at 8049 State Route 99E in Los Molinos, CA, sponsored the 3rd annual “Paws for the Cause” fundraiser. 

During the month of July, Paw-Prints were sold by Nu-Way checkers.  P.E.T.S. provided a Big Basket full of treats for whomever sold the most.  This year’s winner is, 2nd year in a row, Mary Jo Limas.  We congratulate Mary Jo and offer our deepest appreciation to all the others for working so hard:  Brittanie who came in 2nd, Sugey, Tory, Lupe, Shilo, Bernice, Garrett and others.  In addition we wish to thank Bo and Bill Patchen for making this all possible.  Nu-Way is a fully stocked market in the heart of Los Molinos with friendly folks to assist you and the shortest waiting lines around.  Nu-Way Market was named the Red Bluff Chamber’s “Best Business of the Quarter” in 2017. The Patchen brothers were also the Grand Marshals in the 2018 Los Molinos Parade. 

At the Kickoff of this event P.E.T.S. took this opportunity to meet and greet the public in Los Molinos and enjoyed sharing information about our programs that support the Tehama County Animal Care Center and benefit the families of Tehama County.  P.E.T.S. newest program, “Patriots and Pets” animal adoption program, allows any adopter who is on Active duty, on Reserve, or a Veteran of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, National Guard, or Navy residing within Tehama County to be eligible for discounted adoption fees on dogs and cats adopted at the Tehama County Animal Care Center, by PETS paying the spay and neuter fees.  This newest program is possible due to the “Diane McCorkle Endowment Fund for Spay and Neutering of Tehama County Dogs and Cats”

 P.E.T.S. is a non-profit 501c3, dedicated to improving the welfare and creating public awareness of the abandoned, neglected, and abused animals in Tehama County.
