❤ Love Is Special ❤

The “Love Is Special” is a new Adoption Program at the Tehama County Animal Care Center (TCACC) located at 1830
Walnut Street, Red Bluff, CA (530-527-3439). The program is designed to help find new loving homes for special-needs
dogs and cats who are frequently overlooked at the shelter, but, have so much love to give.


Animals with “special needs” are as affectionate, sweet, and kind as all the other residents at TCACC and the P.E.T.S.
organization believes what makes these animals different is also what makes them very special. These dogs and cats
have many “special-abilities” and deserve an extra chance to have a caring forever home.


The “Love Is Special” Adoption program discounts adoption fees for those cats and dogs that are deaf, blind, Heartworm
positive, FIV positive, senior or functionally disabled (missing limbs, partial paralysis). The Adoption fees will be reduced
to $25.00 or less for Dogs and $0.00 for Cats. All animals in this adoption program will be spayed/neutered, dogs will be
micro-chipped, and all will be current on vaccinations.


The Tehama County Animal Care Center will help you. For more information or to arrange a visit with a “Special” dog or
cat at the Tehama County Animal Care Center, please call 530-527-3439.

Are you an Active Duty, Reserve, or Veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces?  Are you looking to adopt a furry companion?  Are you interested in giving a shelter pet a second chance at life?  Then the “Patriots and Pets Adoption Program” may be right for you.

 

P.E.T.S. (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter) is proud to announce that we are partnering with the Tehama County Animal Care Center (TCACC) to honor and say thank you to America’s dedicated service men and women, by providing an adoption discount on Tehama County’s homeless pets.

 

“Due to the bequest of the “Diane McCorkle Endowment Fund for Spay and Neutering of Tehama County Dogs and Cats”, we are excited to state that P.E.T.S. will be able to pay, for active duty military and armed services veterans, the spay and neuter portion of adoption fees for any dog or cat adopted at TCACC, beginning July 30, 2018.” said Ronnie Casey, P.E.T.S.’s Vice President.  "The men and women who serve and have served our country deserve our admiration and sincere gratitude for the commitment and bravery shown in order to keep us, our fellow Americans, and our country safe.  The on-going love and devotion of a pet, we feel, is a good way to thank the patriots who fought for our freedom.  We believe the “Patriots and Pets Program” could be a win-win for all involved.”

 

Tehama County Animal Care Manager, Christine McClintock added, "This program will allow us to assist deserving military veterans who would appreciate the companionship of a furry friend."

 

To qualify for the program, the adopter must be an Active duty, Reserve, or Veteran of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and National Guard residing within Tehama County.  Applicants must bring a photo ID and provide one form of valid military identification to receive the free spay or neuter on the adoptive pet.  Valid identification includes a Veterans Identification Card, VA Health Card, Department of Defense/Uniformed Services ID Card, Disabled American Veterans Life Member ID Card, American Legion ID Card, DD-214 form, a Disabled Veteran California State Park and Recreation Pass, or a letter from the Tehama County Office of Veterans Affairs.  Potential adopters must meet the Tehama County Animal Care Center pet adoption requirements.

Everyone Needs A Hero 

 Thank you to all our first responders!

Everyone needs a hero, and animals are no exception. Every day throughout our country, law enforcement personnel and firefighters have been responsible for saving countless lives. It is not only humans that are saved, but also many animals. While the heroic rescues of animals often get media attention, it is the many simple acts of kindness that usually go unnoticed. Rescuing a kitten stuck in a tree, or helping someone’s beloved pet find its way home, are just a couple examples of incidents too numerous to mention. Whether it is a dynamic rescue or a simple act, these people really are heroes to the animals.
 
P.E.T.S. (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter), in an effort to show appreciation to the firefighters and law enforcement personnel of Tehama County, is continuing its “Everyone Needs A Hero” Adoption Program for one year, starting June 1, 2016. During this program, the spay/neuter and rabies fees of any animal adopted at the Tehama County Animal Care Center by fire or law enforcement personnel working in Tehama County, including volunteer staff, will be paid by P.E.T.S.
 
"Everyone needs a hero and everyone needs a friend, no matter who you are," said Ronnie Casey, P.E.T.S.’s Vice President. "We at P.E.T.S. know that the animals at the Tehama County Animal Care Center need a permanent place to call home. They need their “hero” to come and give them a happy forever-after, which they have not experienced. In addition, we are also aware that a pet can add real joy and unconditional love to a life. We believe this program could be a win-win for everyone involved.”
 
"These men and women who serve our county deserve our admiration, support, and gratitude for the often thankless jobs that they do. It is our hope that by reducing the adoption fees, they and their families will find a furry friend to assist them in living a more peaceful and healthy home life. Just as these unsung heroes help us, we hope we can do the same for them," Clarissa Ortner, P.E.T.S. Board member added.
 
To qualify for the program, the adopter must be an employee or recognized volunteer of any of the following organizations within Tehama County: Tehama County Fire Department, CAL FIRE, any Police Department, any Department of the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office, and California Highway Patrol. A photo ID and verification must be provided to qualify.
 
The Tehama County Animal Care Center (TCACC) (530-527-3439) is at 1830 Walnut Street in Red Bluff, CA. TCACC adoption hours are 10 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, excluding holidays.
