Sacramento, California was founded in December of 1848 and rapidly grew into a metropolitan area during the gold rush. The California State Legislature named Sacramento the state capital in 1854 largely due to its prosperous link to the Pony Express and Transcontinental Railroad. The oldest part of the city is Sutter's Fort, followed by Old Sacramento, which is located between Interstate 5and the Sacramento River. Old Sacramento State Historic Park consists of cobbled streets and some historic buildings. Today, Sacramento enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, growing population, and a bustling economy in the heart of the state of California and historic Central Valley. The city also has a reputation as a center for Dixieland jazz, because of the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee which is held every Memorial Day weekend.

Sacramento County Wildlife Removal Tip:

What Can You Do About A Rodent In Crawl Space - If you have discovered rodents in your attic, you may well also have them in your crawl space. Once rodents take up residence in a new home they love to explore and investigate their new surroundings. Any small gap or hole from your attic to other areas of the house will be used as an entryway by your rodent population. If you do have rodents in the crawl space you may well be able to hear them scrambling and scampering around. It is imperative that you address the infestation as quickly and efficiently as possible - the crawl space in your home contains much of the essential wiring for your home as well as cables for the air conditioning and heating.

In order to deal with rodents in the crawl space of your home you will first have to undertake a little detective work. Spend a few early mornings watching your rodents coming and going - this is so that you can discover how the rodents are getting in and out of your home. You should be able to identify the favored route used by the rodents and will be able to set traps at this entryway in order to catch and release, or kill, all of your unwanted visitors.

Foes of new dog law start signature drive

Sacramento -- Opponents of a new law that allows cities and counties to impose restrictions on certain breeds of dogs are trying to have it overturned. Opponents must collect 373,816 signatures from registered voters by Jan. 5, 2006, to have enactment of the law put on hold until voters have their say on the issue. Animal and carcass removal services in Sacramento County is dedicated to helping California and Sacramento.

The new law allows local governments to create spaying and neutering requirements for specific breeds. Rules pertaining to specific breeds were prohibited previously. The new law was sought by San Francisco officials, including Mayor Gavin Newsom, after a 12-year-old boy was killed by his family's pit bulls earlier this year. Sacramento County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems.

Breed-specific legislation is unfair and might backfire, said Dawn Capp, a Sacramento attorney who is leading the referendum drive. "Right now it just mandates spay and neutering, but the whole purpose is to control vicious dogs," said Capp, who is also author of "American Pit Bull Terriers: The Truth Behind One of America's Most Popular Breeds." For more information, call the animal services of Sacramento, California.

Signature collection to overturn the law is strictly a volunteer effort, she said. Capp said people might decide not to get their dogs licensed for fear of further crackdowns on specific breeds in the future. "Then you've just made the problem phenomenally worse," she said. Sacramento County animal services in Sacramento, California, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call 916-808-7387, and if you need wildlife removal service in Sacramento County, call Critter Control: 916-603-5794.
