Life is always better with a friend by your side. When it comes to two dogs who just arrived at the Sacramento SPCA, truer words have never been written.
Sadie and Kirby have been together since Kirby was just a puppy. Both adopted, they have spent all of their years with a great owner, bonding over some of life’s greatest details — going to the dog park, learning how to shake, and watching YouTube videos.*
Sadly, this past February they lost the greatest part of their life when their owner suddenly passed away. Since then, they’ve been staying with a family friend. Unable to place the dogs into a new home, the friend reached out to the Sacramento SPCA and we made a promise to find the dogs a home together.
Bonded given the journey they’ve traveled together, Sadie won’t walk through a door without Kirby by her side. And when Kirby seems to struggle with the loss of their owner, he turns to Sadie.
“Upon meeting them you just know that these two dogs need to continue their journey together,” explains Jeannette Biskup, the Sacramento SPCA’s chief of operations. “We’re going to do everything we can to make that happen. Fortunately, we always receive such great support from the Sacramento community that we have no doubt that these two will soon be home again.”
* That’s right. Sadie is a fan of both TV and YouTube. Her favorites? Cartoons or anything with other animals and kids.
