At the SPCA: Esperanza hopes for a home

Esperanza SSPCA

Meet Esperanza. She’s a 4-year-old terrier American/Staffordshire mix who has been at the Sacramento SPCA since December.

Esperanza is a loving and gentle girl. Her favorite things are being petted and cuddled. She can be a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly.

Esperanza meets everyone with a wag of the tail and a big kiss. A little positive training would help build her confidence. If you are looking for love then you are looking for Esperanza.

Her adoption fee is $100. Come visit her at the SPCA, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, 6201 Florin Perkins Road or online at
