Sweet Rambo needs a home where his special needs are understood. Rambo was taken to a local shelter by his owner for euthanasia because he suddenly became blind. It was later discovered that he has SARDS, a sudden onset of blindness currently being studied by UCD. Rambo has participated in a clinical trial to help researchers learn more about the disease, but there is currently no cure and he will be blind for the remainder of his life. This 10 year old, 19lb boy has adapted relatively well to losing his sight, and he just needs a loving, understanding home to live out his golden years. In a new environment, he gets around well by following voices, but does learn routes after some exploring. He is not housebroken. He lives with dogs, but would be fine, and probably prefer, being the only dog. Living with blindness in dogs is relatively easy, and we can give you tips. This boy wants a quiet home, belly rubs, and a spot next to you on the sofa.

If you are interested in adopting please read the following to expedite your application.

5. If the dog is a good match for your family, a volunteer will call you to set up a meeting. The Yolo County SPCA is a volunteer run organization and are usually only able to call back if the dog would be a good match for your family based on the information received from the volunteer foster families.
All of our canines are altered (spayed & neutered), puppies are started on their shots (DAPP), adults are up to date (rabies and DAPP) and have been heart worm tested (negative) and all dogs are microchipped. The adoption fee is $150 (which covers all of these costs) for all dogs and puppies. We also have special discounted adoption fees for Chihuahua mixes, at $100 for Chihuahua mix puppies and $50 for Chihuahua mix adults.
THERE IS NO SHELTER FOR YOU TO VISIT BECAUSE WE ARE A FOSTER BASED ORGANIZATION. IF YOU ARE READING THIS THEN WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS, WE REMOVE OUR ANIMALS FROM OUR SITE WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED.
The Yolo County SPCA is a private, not-for-profit animal rescue organization. All of our animals awaiting adoption are in foster homes. For more general questions please visit www.yolospca.org or contact us through email at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
