Animals can become the neglected, abused and abandoned victims of overpopulation, owner stress, or elements of society on the fringe. Anyway you look at it animal rescue agencies are valuable resources to appreciate and support.
Cats that were rescued from Seaside properties in a major animal cruelty and neglect case last year are available for adoption from the SPCA Monterey County.
They did not pass the rigorous training to become guide dogs. But they are some of the most-sought after dogs for adoption by Bay Area families.
When Jo Hamilton realized there were just too many dogs and cats waiting for a good home, she stepped up and co-founded an animal rescue and adoption organization.
