Today, with a heavy heart, we gifted Beau peace.

As mentioned last month, Beau had started to decline at the shelter; eating less and losing weight. Last week, he was seen at Sierra Vet and diagnosed with terminal cancer. We have spent the past days giving him extra loves, extra treats, and all the walks he desired. Today, he was sent to the Rainbow Bridge surrounded by the staff who loved and cared for him.

Our hearts are broken for our friend, but we are comforted knowing that he did not feel pain and that he knew he was treasured. Sending him to the bridge was not an easy decision for us, but in the end, it's not about us, it's about doing right by them. Always doing right by them.

We are tasked each day with providing care and comfort for every animal in our shelter, and sometimes the best decision for them is the hardest for us.

The ripples of his life will continue to affect everyone he touched. Beau was a good boy!

Ceres Gamecock Breeder Indicted on Animal Cruelty Charges

Cockfighting is illegal and inhumane. Unfortunately, it still occurs in California and cases have been found in El Dorado County in the past.

El Dorado County Animal Services works with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to shut down these cruel animal crimes. For this particular case in Ceres, El Dorado County Animal Services was contacted by the HSUS to provide mutual aid/support. One of our Animal Services officers was sent and assisted with the identification, logging and transportation of the birds during the execution of the search warrant.

If you see or suspect cockfighting activity or operations in El Dorado County, please report it to Animal Services or law enforcement.

Also please put an in case I’m arrested phone number on your dogs collar. Bring your newly adopted Alien to the shelter for a cookie he will probably not need a license.

All pet owners who plan on going to Area 51 please take these precautions:

- Avoid rattle snakes & pack a snake bite kit
- Check your dog for foxtails
- Avoid scorpions as they are very venomous
- Make sure your dog has plenty of water
- Make sure your dog has a well fitted tinfoil hat
- Please make arrangements for your furry friend in the event you are arrested and taken to federal prison
