Simba is a sweet, adult male Boxer/ Pit Bull mix waiting to have a life of warmth & love. He was found by the City of Folsom Animal Control with another stray, Nala, who has already found a forever home. Simba appears to like other dogs and is very friendly. The Folsom Shelter staff describes Simba as healthy, playful and responsive to obedience training. He is house trained, neutered, and up-to-date with routine shots. There is no doubt that Simba can make one lucky family very happy.
Simba is currently one among thousands of dogs found in Sacramento County waiting to find a new home. The Sacramento’s euthanasia rate is now below 50 percent, which is a great improvement, but the goal is that no healthy or treatable animal will be killed for lack of a home.
Sacramento Animal Shelter has partnered with the City of Sacramento, Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary, and the Sacramento SPCA who is working with the American Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to better track how animals are coming into and leaving the shelter. This data, collected from all four participating agencies, gives the ASPCA a snapshot of the Sacramento region's animal population and makes much-needed funds available to increase adoptions and reduce euthanasia rates. According to the ASPCA, the number of pets killed at Sacramento shelters has fallen 28 percent since 2009. Sacramento citizens can help by spaying and neutering all their animals and only adopting and encouraging others to adopt exclusively from shelters and rescue organizations.
