Tulip is a young, 18 lb., Poodle/Schnauzer mix who was brought to a local shelter with severe trauma after being hit by a car. The shelter reached out to CAPE for help.
CAPE quickly brought Tulip to our veterinarian for x-rays, and sadly, she has a fractured pelvis in five places.
Four veterinarians carefully reviewed her x-rays and determined the best course of action is to let her heal with plenty of rest and lots of TLC! CAPE will make sure that Tulip receives all the medical care, rest, and love she needs to recover.
Tulip is currently in a wonderful, loving CAPE foster home where she is being nursed back to health. She is on medication right now for pain management and, hopefully soon, Tulip will feel well enough for us to reduce the medication. Once Tulip is feeling better we will have her spayed and she will go up for adoption.
Thank you for helping CAPE save animals like Tulip. We will keep you posted as her journey unfolds.

🐾Day 6 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week!💜
Often, we meet animals in shelters who are not good candidates for adoption. These animals are older and usually have chronic health conditions or temperament issues that require that they be closely monitored and cared for.
Meet some of the amazing senior dogs in CAPE’s Assisted Living Program! Over the years, CAPE has been able to save the lives of dozens of senior animals who were brought into our Assisted Living Program which is designed to provide animals who are not candidates for adoption with permanent foster care in the home of a loving CAPE foster volunteer. Volunteers who sign up for this program make a commitment to care for the animal for the remainder of the animal’s life, and CAPE covers ALL expenses.
The huge success of this program has been due to the kindness and commitment of our wonderful volunteer team, who we are deeply grateful for. Every animal, no matter their circumstances deserves the opportunity to thrive long into their lives.
CAPE’s Assisted Living Program has provided a wonderful life, free from suffering to many senior animals. We couldn’t do it without YOU, our CAPE community.

💜🐾Day 3 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week!
When CAPE staff first laid eyes on Gretta, she was in an isolation kennel at the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento. She had been dropped off as a stray and there was no chance that she would be put up for adoption.
Her age was estimated to be around 13 years old. She had multiple tumors all over her body. Her fur was matted with dirt and filth. There was a good chance that Gretta was never going to leave the animal shelter unless CAPE rescued her. So we did.
Gretta is now in her CAPE Assisted Living foster home. She is nearly blind and mostly deaf. After she was shaved and groomed, our veterinarian removed two tumors from her body. The tumor on her front leg was determined to be a sarcoma. Gretta also has multiple mammary tumors and we discovered she was never spayed.
Now that she lives in CAPE's Assisted Living program, Gretta has settled into a comfortable routine. She will receive all the care and love she needs for the rest of her life. When she is not waddling around the house in her favorite sweaters, Gretta likes to nap in her favorite bed.
