PETS attended this outdoor "safe" event and gave out coloring books and dog treats...

Louanna Ramero at the Los Molinos Library

On Tuesday 10-20-20, Clarissa Ortner of PETS (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter) presented Louanna Ramero of the Tehama County Library System (in Los Molinos), three baskets of Coloring Books and crayons.  The books are: “How to be safe around dogs”. (In both English and Spanish) PETS hopes the kids who like to color also learn how to be safe near doggies.

Books generously supplied by The California Animal Welfare Association” and the California Department of Public Health.  

(If you have an event with children who would benefit from these coloring books, please contact us.  We are happy to supply them as long as they last.)

PETS goes to the birds.....

Recently, our generous friends from the *Walmart Distribution Center in Red Bluff donated to PETS a large variety of animal foods, including  wild bird seed. 


Today, PETS met with Natalie of the Dye Creek Wildlife Rescue to handover this bounty to help her cause.  Just today Natalie picked up a sparrow and a hawk for rescue.  Things are getting more difficult for the Wildlife rescue as many of their volunteers are retiring.  So if you love the wild critters, please contact Natalie to donate your time.  As little as picking up a bird in a cage for them could make a BIG difference.  Click on their card to visit their FB Page.

*PETS is so grateful to Walmart DC #6026 for their continued generosity to us & Red Bluff.  Our hearts go out to them....

2020 NuWay PawPrints Fundraiser:  Huge success!

The wall of gratitude will display all the PawPrints purchased during July. (Contributed)

The 2020 Nu-Way Paw prints fundraiser for P.E.T.S.  (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter) is complete for the 5th year running. 


P.E.T.S. support of the Tehama County Animal Care Center (TCACC) is what drives each fundraiser. 

More Paw prints and donations were garnered this year than in any past year.  The support of Nu-Way and the all-important checkers was phenomenal.   Every checker contributed to this great success.   It is also with gratitude we thank the people of Los Molinos who shopped at Nu-way with their hard earned dollars.. Patricia Wesley was the checker who sold the most PawPrints with last year’s winner Bre Hope-Winning coming in 2nd.  They each won a big basket of goodies from P.E.T.S. for their efforts.  The other important contributors are Margret, Bernice, Micah, Marci , Laura and more. 

Nu-Way at 8049 State Route 99E is a fully stocked family run market in the heart of Los Molinos- with deli food, fresh meat section, the freshest vegetables and the best service.  They are also “highly” Covid aware and careful for our safety! 

Each year P.E.T.S. hangs a sign prominently in the store to alert the public of “goings on” at the shelter.  This year we highlighted last year’s numbers:  653 animals were adopted out of the shelter.  548 animals were rescued to other shelters and 548 animals were returned to their owner.  This and more information can be found on the brand new TCACC website with lots of great information we all need to know. 

P.E.T.S. is an all-volunteer non-profit dedicated to completing its mission of practicing and promoting responsible compassionate care to all animals, both in TCACC care and in the community. The homeless animals of Tehama County and the Animal Care Center benefit from the monies P.E.T.S. distributes through various programs.  With fundraisers like this one we will be able to supply the animals of the shelter with medicines, adoption assistance, transport, enrichment and so much more along with education opportunities and spay/neuter vouchers, emergency food, and more for the people of Tehama County.

We all deserve to sleep cozy and warm in our beds at night, and that includes our four-legged friends who live at the Tehama County Animal Care Center (530-527-3439). Our pups love to dream of forever homes, while snoozing soundly on Kuranda Dog beds… But we don’t have enough for everyone.

If you would like to donate a bed and give a dog a dream, please click on the link below For anyone who is donating to the shelter, Kuranda is offering special discounts and free shipping. Your donation will be sent directly to the shelter in your name and will be greatly appreciated by our canine guests.

THANK YOU!    Kuranda Beds
