The Sacramento SPCA Pawspice Program places animals who have been diagnosed with a terminal medical condition but still have a high quality of life in loving homes until it is their time to cross the rainbow bridge. Once in their adoptive home, Pawspice animals will continue to receive palliative medical support for their diagnosed condition from the Sacramento SPCA in order to keep them comfortable. All routine vet care, vet care for unrelated illness/injury, and/or further diagnostics or treatment is the responsibility of their adopter(s).
Nikko is a 12.5 year old and 15 pound dog who is looking for his forever home. He is such a sweet senior that would like nothing more than to live his golden years with a loving family. He is blind and deaf but that doesn't slow him down and he moves around quite well. Nikko has been diagnosed with anemia due to an undetermined underlying health issue. This condition is not treatable, but it does not stop Nikko from being happy and comfortable! Nikko will receive lab work and exams through the SacSPCA every six months to monitor the progression of his condition.

Adoption Process: At 9:00 am each morning a link will go live where you can schedule an appointment to come down to the shelter that day to meet an available animal. Animals pictured on this page may be adopted prior to your appointment time. Shelter staff will let you know when you arrive what animals are still available to be adopted and any special considerations the animal might have. Once you have finished a counsel and a meet-and-greet, you will be able to adopt! Only one animal may be met with per family, per day.
