CHECK US OUT ON FACEBOOK!
We recently started a new adventure.  We found ourselves surfing the net and wondering what facebook was all about.  With the advice of some of our friends, we decided to start a "Facebook page".  What a miraculous way to keep in touch with all of you.  Our page allows people to become a "Fan" of Sutter Buttes Canine Rescue (link) and to be updated on our events, needs and accomplishments.  To date, because of the facebook page, we have gained many new fans who did not know about our organization. We also have received dog food donations,Thrift Shop donations and bedding as well as lots of fun ideas from our fans.  We strive to post daily on facebook.  We talk about upcoming events, local news, adoptions, what's happening at the Shelter.  We appreciate your support and look forward to a long relationship with you.  We appreciate your comments, opinions, questions, etc.. Feel free to let us know what you think.  Please check out the "discussion page " (link)  on facebook, where you can start a discussion with us or others about problems, or things that work for you with your dogs or that might work for our Shelter dogs.   Please continue your generous support by donating dog food, gently used items for the Thrift Shop and consider making a donation.    We are able to give you a tax deductible donation receipt.  Monetary donations always welcome of any size, one dollar to one million.  We love facebook because of the fact that we only update this website once per month and facebook daily.  Again, you are the best and dog smooches for you all.

LOST YOUR PET?
If you find you have lost your pet,
don't panic and take these steps
  • Make a thorough check of your home and yard
  • Start searching the neighborhood.
  • Go to your local shelter
  • Post flyers with your pet's photo and description
  • Place ads in your local papers.
  • Place ads on the internet.
  • Contact all your local rescues
  • Don't Give Up!  Check all the avenues daily.

If you don't already have your pet microchipped, considering doing so.  It is an inexpensive way to place a permanent chip in the neck of your pet that can be scanned for identification.  Also get a collar with a name tag for your pet.  They are very inexpensive to have engraved with the  pets name, address and phone number.  Check your yard for holes in the fence at least every two weeks.  Get down low and see if your pet  has a potential area he can escape from. 

NEW SHELTER HOURS!

DUMP PASSES WANTED!
The Thrift Shop operation includes "dumping fees".  Unfortunately, we receive donations which are not in good enough shape to sell at the Thrift Shop.  Therefore, we are frequently taking these items to the Yuba Sutter Recology (dump).  If you have any "Free Dump Passes" that you don't use, we would be happy to have them.  For more information, please call 530-755-2025.  When donating to the Thrift Shop please only bring items which are new or very gently used.  No rust, tears, odors, (cigarette smoke), broken, missing parts, old computer monitors, old Tv's, printers with no software, broken furniture, ripped furniture, stained clothing, very worn shoes, molded items (books specifically).  We appreciate each and every donation, but we simply cannot afford to operate with the increasing cost of dumping fees.  We need your donations and welcome them, just be aware of items we cannot sell, as listed above.  Thank You again for all of your support for the animals.

Holiday Pet Tips
  • Don't feed your pet table scraps.  Keep your pet on their regular diet.  Giving them scraps can cause diarrhea and all kinds of other stomach ailments
  • Hide electrical Cords.  Pets love to chew on cords.  Make sure they are kept away from your pet.


  • Keep holiday decorations out of your pets reach.  Tinsel and garland can cause bowel obstructions and wires can cause shock and burns.  Get on the ground yourself and see what potential disasters your pet might be a victim of

  • Try to keep surroundings calm and on a normal schedule.  pets can become anxious about visitors, schedule changes and Christmas lights and noises. 
  • Make sure your pet has a secluded safe area to go to.  A place where they can feel comfortable and alone.
