Become one of Buddha’s Buddies

Buddha's Story

Buddha was barely alive when he was carried into S.P.A.R.C. by a Santa Paula Police Officer. He had tattoos across his chest and genitals which caused paralysis in his back legs. Any other shelter would have euthanized him but S.P.A.R.C believes every animal deserves a chance. Medical help, physical therapy, a donation from Eddie's Wheels and lots of love got Buddha up, moving and into a forever home!

Yes, I would like to become a Buddha's Buddy
