They don’t live nearly long enough. Some people have a very difficult time dealing with the loss of a pet.
The group meets the first Tuesday of every month from 7 -8:30 pm at the SPCA of Solano County in the Education Classroom, located at 2200 Peabody Rd, Vacaville, CA 95687. This is a free service but donations are always accepted. Bring a photo of your beloved pet to share.
The group will be facilitated by a mental health professional, Bonnie Mader, a pioneer in the field of pet loss and human emotion and the co-founder of the Pet Loss Support Hotline. The first 45 minutes Dr. Kelly Palm, the other co-founder of the Pet Loss Support Hotline will be there to answer medical questions.
You are now thinking what is the catch. No catch. May 31, 2014 the SPCA of Solano County Spay/Neuter Clinic is celebrating “No Father’s Day” by neutering 150 male cats free of charge.
Our mission is to reduce the number of animals surrendered to municipal shelters by reducing the number of unwanted litters. This sponsored event will allow 150 male cats either pets, feral or rescue groups are welcome. Advance appointments are required.

Construction projects are frustrating when they somewhat as planned. They never come in on time or under budget and you are at the mercy of whatever trade is currently working on their part of the project. The drywall guy is mad at the framers, the painters are made at the drywall guys and on and on.
Of course with this project there has been the added bonus of PG&E challenges, waiting on grant money, and most recently getting the equipment we have into the clinic building with a tractor and borrowed forks. We never would have gotten them moved in there without it, we really could have used a forklift. We made it work just like we always do and nobody got hurt! 🙂
It is starting to come together. The PG&E is straightened out, sort of. At least there is a plan in place and progress is being made. Having the equipment in place, at least part of it is very encouraging. It helps to see what the finished product is going to look like. Everyone is starting to get very excited. The staff that will be working in the clinic is fantastic. That was the one aspect of this project that just came together.
It is finally getting there. Just a little bit longer…..
The dedicated volunteers of the SPCA of Solano County have given thousands of hours of time during the past nine years . Growing from a very small pool of original volunteers, the program now has over forty regular volunteers who give their help every single day. Volunteer tasks include cleaning kennels, doing laundry, walking, socializing and training dogs, and socializing cats.
All Volunteers attend a General Orientation, and additional training specific to working with dogs and cats. There are also other volunteers who help with special projects, such as creating mailing labels, spreadsheets and documents from their home computers, assist with special events including car washes, BBQ’s, and other activities, and open their homes for animals needing foster care. Select experienced Volunteers are chosen to be Mentors and/or Greeters, and are available to assist and train newer volunteers.
Volunteers meet together on a monthly basis to stay up to date on shelter policies and procedures, and are also kept current via emails from the shelter. Many volunteers are involved with the SPCA of Solano County’s Special Events Committee, which holds fundraisers regularly. Annual events include the Spring Family Day, Fall BBQ Feed, Doggy Derby, and Holiday Cat Adopt-a-thon, which along with other smaller events help raise awareness and funds for the shelter.
Volunteers work with shelter staff and management to help ensure the animals of the SPCA of Solano County receive the best care possible during their stay. They are dedicated to the shelter’s philosophy and mission. Most importantly, they are committed to the animals in the
shelter’s care, and to helping them find loving, responsible, forever homes. Volunteer orientations are held the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 6:00 to 7:00 Pm at SPCA at 2200 Peabody Rd in Vacaville.
