The Board of Supervisors last week unanimously approved a new $22.1 million state-of-the-art animal services center in north Auburn. The 36,657-square-foot facility, expected to open in 2016, will replace the county’s existing animal shelter, a small cinder- block building from 1975.

Sacramento animal agencies are knocking on doors in some of the area’s toughest neighborhoods, offering free or low-cost veterinary services to people in an effort to reduce the number of dogs and cats that end up in shelters.
If you’re a parent who got a new puppy or dog for the family this summer, your kids and the dog have probably spent their days playing fetch, running through the sprinklers and sharing snacks when they’ve finally worn each other out. But now that school is starting, your pup must learn to adjust to a new schedule.
