Cali became pregnant due to an unintentional breeding that occurred with a housemate. Her owner was not aware of the pregnancy until Cali stated gaining weight a few weeks later.
Cali had gone into labor on a hot mid July day. The first puppy was breech and sadly died before birth. Cali’s owner knew there was something was not right since Cali was having contractions every three minutes without delivering another puppy.
Cali would need a C-section and time was running out to save the puppies who’s heart rates were already dropping. Unfortunately, Cali’s family did not have the financial means for the surgery. The staff at Pet Emergency Center center contacted The Chester Foundation who provided the life saving funds for Cali and her two unborn puppies. During her C-section Cali was also spayed to prevent any further breeding. She recovered quickly from her surgery and was able to go home the next day with a little girl and boy!
Placer SPCA offers little to no cost spay and neuters for cats and pit bulls who live within the county limits.
