SPCA pet of the week: Pepper

Sacramento SPCA

Sweet Pepper is an older girl who was brought to the shelter because her family was moving. At 12 years old, this little 10-pound Chihuahua is shy at first, but warms up once she gets to know you, revealing her friendly and affectionate side. Volunteers note that she’s “a good little walker” on the leash and she loves to be petted. Pepper is used to sleeping with her person and is looking for a home in a calm, low-activity environment. Adoption fee: $100, which is waived for seniors over the age of 65 adopting an animal 5 years or older. A 20 percent adoption fee discount will be applied for seniors adopting an animal under 5 years of age, with the exception of puppies. Information:
