Tater Tot is a sweet 15 year old chihuahua who was surrendered to the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after her senior guardian could no longer take care of her. Due to some medical issues, her chances of adoption were low. The shelter reached out to CAPE and Tater Tot was placed into one of CAPE's foster homes with plans to have her medical issues addressed before she went up for adoption. The next day the foster family contacted CAPE letting us know that they had fallen in love with Tater Tot and wanted to adopt her! Tater Tot now has a second chance with a loving family and we couldn’t be happier!

A young female cat and her two male kittens are looking for their forever home(s)! While it would be great for this family to stay together, the right situation in separate homes will be considered. Mother is friendly and allows pets and scratches. She is up to date on vaccinations and is spayed. The male kittens are scheduled to be neutered soon. Looking for homes where the cats will be kept inside and will be given the love, care, and attention they deserve and need.

Labelle, a two year old goat who was diagnosed with a contagious viral disease called Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE), surprised us one year ago with the birth of her baby at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary. Before being rescued, Labelle was given a full health check and ultrasound to check for pregnancy. It was confirmed that she was not believed to be pregnant, so when we found Labelle lying next to a perfectly clean newborn baby, we were SHOCKED.
Thankfully both Mama and baby have been healthy and strong for the past year. One of CAPE’s wonderful volunteers named the baby Maggie Mae and she is an absolute delight! She bounces and runs and looks like she may take flight with her magnificent ears. Maggie’s meeting all milestones for growth, and is as goofy as they come. She absolutely adores her mother, who is loving, patient and protective. They are deeply bonded to one another and spend their days playing, soaking up sunshine and cuddling in their stall. Most goats who are diagnosed with CAE are sadly killed. Sometimes the whole herd is culled.
With proper care and protection, goats with CAE can go on to live long lives with this disease. Only a small percentage of goats show clinical signs of CAE which can be represented by arthritis and respiratory issues. We built a separate enclosure on the upper pasture several years ago for Labelle and Maggie, mother and daughter, who will get to spend their lives together.

We need your help with medical care costs for Bree!
This sweet female chihuahua, estimated to be about 7, came into the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter as a stray. Bree’s toenails are painted, so it looks like she had a guardian at one time, but has clearly not been cared for in some time. She has a sizable mass on her face that will need to be removed and she also needs a full dental, plus normal vet checkup, bloodwork and grooming.
Two of CAPE’s beloved long-time fosters, Jan and Carlos, went to evaluate this chihuahua and another dog, Ruthie, who Santa Cruz County Shelter asked CAPE to consider. When Jan and Carlos met Ruthie and Bree, both older dogs with pretty substantial medical needs, they agreed to foster both of them. Bree and Ruthie’s medical bills, food and care costs will all be paid for by CAPE for the remainder of their life, thanks to the generosity of our wonderful donors.
Now that Bree has settled into her new cozy home in Santa Cruz, she’s meshing well with the other dogs. Shes a bit timid still, but is sweet and interested in playing. Bree had her initial vet appointment this week for bloodwork and to create a care plan- which will include removal and testing of the mass, and a full dental cleaning.
Please help us cover the cost of Bree’s surgery and dentistry. We are anticipating that her initial care will will cost more than $3000. Please consider donating today to help support Bree’s care!
Thank you so much for helping us save the lives of animals who have special needs. Together, we have saved thousands for the past 30 years!
