Who is Sido?​

The namesake of the Sido Pet Protection Program was a ten-year-old dog whose guardian’s last will and testament ordered Sido’s euthanization after her death. The SF SPCA led the charge to save Sido’s life and helped pass landmark California legislation making it illegal to order a pet’s death in a will.
