Santa agrees to December 22 Petco photo encore!

Santa agrees to December 22 Petco photo encore!

BIG thanks to Warrenton Petco and The Trophy Case of Gearhart for making the whole thing possible. 

We’ had a great time at Petco with Santa. It’s been a lot of fun meeting all of you and your special friends. 


We initially scheduled December 8-9, then 15-16 and thought that would be plenty. Believe it or not, there is so much interest in our Petco Photos with Santa that we asked Santa to encore on December 22. He agreed, which is incredibly gracious considering Santa’s busy schedule that close to Christmas. So help us make Santa’s encore appearance worthwhile. 

Saturday December 22 1:00-4:00 pm

When you come in for Santa photos, go straight to the checkout counter and donate $9.95 for each picture you would like.  Bring the receipt back to Santa’s photo bench. Santa will be wearing his formal red suit with white trim, so he’s hard to miss. 

You can have a wonderful picture of Santa and your pet, your kids or even you.

All of the proceeds go directly to helping the senior dogs at the Sanctuary.  We really appreciate all your help and support!! 

We got a grant!

We got a grant!

We are thrilled to announce the Pedigree Foundation has given us a $1050 grant to support our senior foster program. These extra resources will help us keep our promise to Sara by caring for senior dogs who are unable to be adopted due to a variety of circumstances and faced euthanasia in the county animal shelter.

The funds will be used for dog food and veterinary care. Some of the senior dogs have been placed in foster care and this grant would help enable the sanctuary to maintain and improve the health of future residents, thereby making them a better candidate for fostering.

On behalf of Jane (above) and other senior dogs at Angels for Sara’s Sanctuary, we want to thank @pedigreefoundation for this much-needed financial support of our senior puppers. And thank you for helping us to keep the promise to Sara.

Sadie & Jena

Sadie & Jena

So I went out to Angels for Sara Sanctuary just to visit and see what really goes on there.

I met this precious BFF bonded pair. Sadie, left, is only 12 but she is both blind and deaf. Although she will startle a bit if you start petting her unexpectedly, I found Sadie remarkably composed for someone coping with so much loss. That may well be due to the influence of Jenna (on the right). Jenna watches out for Sadie. Not aggressively. She just accompanies Sadie and makes sure everything is copasetic.

I’m sure it also has something to do with their home. It seems apparent that all of the dogs are comfortable and well-adjusted to each other. I enjoyed our visit very much and hope to visit again.

If you would be interested in helping this lovely pair of gentile ladies and other seniors like them, please message us, call us at 503-325-2772 or email us at angelsforsara@gmail.com. We are Angels for Sara, a 501 ( c ) 3 qualified nonprofit organization in support of senior dogs.

shelterpetproject: Bell and Cinnamon were surrendered to the shelter in Hayward

shelterpetproject: Bell and Cinnamon were surrendered to the shelter in Hayward

Bell and Cinnamon were surrendered to the shelter in Hayward, California, after being with the same family for over 9 years. ?

These senior sisters love each other, so the Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers are trying to find them a home together.

Bell enjoys playing fetch and cuddling, and Cinnamon is sweetly playful with people. They are both sweet and gentle and should do well with young kids. They like to hang out with other calm dogs but prefer not to engage in play with them.

Can you help – a reblog, a home?

You can find out more by calling Hayward Animal Services Bureau at (510) 293-7200 ext: 7. Ask for information about animal ID numbers A108370 (Bell) and A108369 (Cinnamon).
