June 2021 Newsletter
The Elk Grove Animal Shelter has several adoptable cats, as well as dogs, rabbits, and hamsters. If you are interested in adopting, you can contact the shelter at 916-687-3042. You can also browse their adoptable pets via the Elk Grove Services website, egas.petfinder.com or adoptapet.com.
The health of your pets is very important to us, and something that often gets overlooked is their weight- especially in cats.
According to a 2018 obesity study done by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 90% of pet parents with an overweight pet don’t even realize it.
Contact our office if you feel your pet may be overweight- there are lots of things we can do to help our furry friends get back to a healthy weight!
Did you know?
- The first year of a cat’s life is equivalent to the first 15 years of a human’s life.
- Domestic cats spend 70% of the day sleeping and 15% is spent grooming.
- Meowing is not innate cat language- they developed this to communicate with humans!

We’re still practicing curbside-care for most services (where our staff comes out to you). Please call us anytime you arrive outside the office so we know you are here and can get you taken care of.
Starting March 1st, we began allowing a limited number of clients enter our office to be present for their pet’s examination by the veterinarian. Clients who enter the office MUST be escorted in by a staff member, wear a mask, wash their hands upon entry, and social distance while inside. Our lobby and waiting room remains closed to clients at this time. Please understand that our policies may change with short notice depending on what California’s COVID phases/restrictions allow.
