The annual Sacramento SPCA Doggy Dash in William Land Park is back in person on April 23 after a two-year pandemic hiatus. It’s one of Northern California’s largest dog events, with 2K and 5K walks plus the festival, attracting up to 5,000 dog-accompanied humans. Registration for the walk is $35, but attendance at the festival, featuring many vendors and canine activities, is free. All funds raised will benefit the compassionate work of the Sacramento SPCA. more »

What’s the nicest thing you could do for dogs this holiday season? Aside from taking on another four-legged family member, the best way to reach out is to help pets in need find loving homes. The ways to do so are as endless as the stream of abandoned pups pouring through shelter and rescue-organization doors. more »
