I was checking out the SPCA website today, and came across a story that I felt compelled to share with you.

Your donation and attendance at our charity boot camp event will go towards helping dogs like Munchie!


This is the story of Munchie, a Chihuahua mix who started out as a stray and found herself a happy ending.

Originally found in someone’s backyard, it was clear that Munchie would need a fair amount of medical treatment. Upon surrender at the Sacramento SPCA, the little dog with her tongue hanging out of her mouth, quickly won the hearts of our shelter staff. Through a medical assessment, it was determined that not only did she need to have nine teeth extracted, but she also had a cancerous mammary mass along with a heart murmur.

All of a sudden this silly faced little dog was faced with a long road ahead of her.

Then walked in Sharilyn — a former Sacramento SPCA staff member, a current volunteer, and a regular supporter, but more importantly, someone who was willing to adopt little Munchie, no matter what lied. When asked what made her want to adopt Bridget, Sharilyn told us that, “the ‘imperfect’ ones are the ‘perfect’ ones to me.”

Munchie, now Bridget, has since recovered from surgery and spends her days lying in the sun and being doted on by the family. Sharilyn says she is one happy pup and to “watch out for that tongue, because she loves to give kisses and they are big ones!”

Sharilyn and Bridget share their home with another Sacramento SPCA alumni, Bubbles, who was adopted in 2007.


Poor little Munchie – but what a great ending to the story!
